GREENVILLE, SC – Progress Lighting unveiled a fresh look, additional space and state-of-the-art features at its permanent showroom located in the Dallas Market Center. Curated product vignettes, an LED Demonstration Lab and an “iDevices® Smart Loft” featuring integrated home automation solutions are available to accommodate all facets of Progress Lighting’s key audiences – including homebuilders, designers and online partners.
The showroom celebrated its grand re-opening on Jan. 18 at a special event during January Total Home & Gift Market. During the show, the space was recognized with a Best Visual Award, where visual design experts evaluate exhibitors based upon innovative and creative display designs.

Inspirational resources that accompany our breadth of products – to equip, educate and excite our valued partners,” said Colleen Visage, Vice President, Product Management for Progress Lighting. “Our newly renovated – and now award-winning! – showroom carries the customer through a uniquely branded experience that speaks to the nature of their business, while introducing marketplace insights paired with a variety of resources to support projects and growth.”

In a strategic move, Progress Lighting has introduced resources and fixture collections that encourage individuals to create unique lighting designs by mixing and matching their favorite fixtures within the same space. To support this initiative, Progress Lighting has introduced collections that coordinate and complement with other pieces – to create a cohesive feel to the home, while also reinforcing a unique design style.
