Legrand Opens New Showroom in Dallas Market Center


WEST HARTFORD, CT, January 14, 2014 – Legrand is enhancing its presence in the lighting market with the opening of its own showroom in the Dallas Market Center. The new, permanent space presents year-round access to the company’s adorne Collection of lighting solutions, which consists of innovative light switches, dimmers, outlets, and wall plates—as well as the Under-Cabinet Lighting System and Wireless Systems for the Home.

The showroom, located at TM 4727, opens its doors in time for January’s International Lighting Market, the bi-annual event that brings lighting buyers from around the world to discover new products in the residential and commercial markets.

“This is our first permanent showroom, and we’re thrilled that it is in the epicenter of the lighting market,” said Mario Gonzalez, vice president of marketing for the adorne Collection. “It is important for us to provide access, service, and inspiration to buyers—as well as architects and designers—and having our own permanent space deepens our commitment to responding to their needs.”

Introduced last year, the adorne Collection “reinvented” the household light switch with seven new interfaces, including its standouts, the Touch Switch and Wave Switch, which turns lights on and off with the wave of a hand.

What’s more, the adorne Under-Cabinet Lighting System features a modular track that fits under kitchen cabinets to discreetly deliver light, power, and music to the space while eliminating the need for outlets on the backsplash.

The collection’s wireless portfolio includes the Whole-House Lighting System, which allows users to control lights with a handheld remote or mobile device from any room in the house, and even when the user is away from home.

Legrand is celebrating the new showroom with a ribbon cutting ceremony on January 15 at 1:15 pm CST.
