Why did you open your first showroom in Ridgefield?
We’ve lived in Ridgefield for 16 years and brought up our family here. I love this community and enjoy working with local residents and businesses. Ridgefielders are design savvy and appreciate unique, quality products in their homes. This was the perfect fit for our business, so we opened right here in Ridgefield. We enjoy working with local businesses as well and we’ve done lighting for the new Dee Dee Colabella Fine Art, Hers Boutique, and Addessi Jewelers. We’re also involved in the community, sponsoring nonprofit organizations and lending a hand when needed.
Tell us about Laurent Lighting and Design.
We’re the opposite of a big-box store. We scout unique lighting from up-and-coming talent, bespoke artisans and we offer many exclusive products you can’t find in other places. Our focus is on product quality, customer service, and sharing our knowledge with our customers to find the perfect lighting solutions for their unique style and lifestyle. We carry over sixty lighting brands, and many are made in the USA.
In our showroom, our customers can see products up close, feel them, and really get a sense of how they will look in their home. We have a digital kiosk so customers can explore thousands of products. We also work with architects, designers, developers, and builders on both residential and commercial projects. No project is too small or too large. From one light fixture to a complete lighting plan for homes, or even commercial buildings – we can help!
