Lighting is essential to customers’ shopping experiences, especially as they pick out furniture and imagine fabrics in their homes and offices. Becker Furniture World, a Becker, Minn.-based residential furniture retailer, prides itself on providing a world-class shopping experience for its customers. With a mandate that the ambiance and customer shopping experience remain the same within the store, Today’s Lighting Distributor examines the innovative ways solid state lighting was incorporated into the design plan when the owners decided to make the conversion to LED.
The Design Center at each store displays hundreds of fabrics, wood samples and catalogs, so it’s imperative that the lighting complement the design process, not distract from it. It meticulously lights its products in the showrooms and spends a lot of time and effort to maintain the look and feel. The company decided to examine the idea of updating its lighting to LED, if it could find something to match what it already had.
