PACE LIGHTING INC.
At the forefront of a new era in lighting showroom design, Pace Lighting management likes to say that its 18,500-square-foot showroom embodies the future look and feel of all lighting showrooms. What’s different? All light fixtures are shown as they would look in a home or office. Vignettes for various rooms of a house are wired to a lighting control system so that any individual fixture can quickly and easily be isolated from surrounding product. A new area dedicated to Fanimation ceiling fans features a game table and other homey touches.
The main showroom displays roughly 2,500 fixtures, from very simple pieces to extravagant showstoppers. Designed to be an inspiration for design, the showroom building features a geothermal heating and cooling system, and private and public wireless networks.
Pace Lighting is out to give customers a “vertical” shopping experience. The staff is able to design, select product, install and repair fixtures of all types. All salespeople in the showroom have design backgrounds, which gives Pace a real edge when working with customers. Kindness counts: “It is our mission to make our customers happy and comfortable every moment they are in our showroom,” the company’s entry statement noted.
