Flambeau Lighting adds second Dallas showroom
May 29, 2013,
Already with a showroom on the 10th floor of the WTC, Baton Rouge, La.-based Flambeau signed a lease for space on the third floor of the Dallas Trade Mart at space 3656-6 in the Spectrum showroom. The new showroom will be open in time for the June 19-25 Dallas Total Home & Gift Market.
Flambeau executives say the additional showroom enables the company to gain visibility in the heart of the market, where lighting retailers shop.
"We have so many hard-wired SKU's in our line including chandeliers, pendants, and sconces and our business with lighting retailers continues to grow," said Joe McKearn, Flambeau president. "Unfortunately we don't see that many lighting stores shopping in our 10th floor WTC showroom, and therefore wanted to take advantage of an opportunity to create a small Flambeau display that lighting stores could essentially implement in their respective stores as a prototype display."
The company is also working with a lighting store specialist to build a separate lighting showroom sales force and McKearn says that the new additional Trade Mart showroom will enable Flambeau to gain exposure to potential lighting representatives and lighting retailers alike.
Additionally, Flambeau recently held a drawing from its new High Point showroom promotion in April, in which buyers entered for a chance to win a weekend for two in New Orleans. The drawing was won by buyers from Old Estate Art Gallery of Thibodaux, La.
