As Legrand's 2020 brand ambassador, Ford will share her expertise on elevating spaces with Legrand's designer switches and outlets, adorne and radiant, throughout the year.
The partnership will encourage homeowners and design professionals to elevate their own spaces with the exceptional style and innovative functionality Legrand's Collections offer.

"Leanne has an incredible eye for selecting beautiful interior details while prioritizing comfort and convenience, and we couldn't be more thrilled to partner with her as our first designer brand ambassador."
The partnership will formally kick-off at the 2020 International Builders' Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, where Ford will participate in a meet-and-greet at Legrand's booth (#SU433).
"Creating welcoming, modern and elevated interiors is a signature part of my design aesthetic, and Legrand's simple, well-designed line of designer switches and outlets help me to achieve that look," said Leanne Ford. "Once I saw the stylish design and high functionality of the products, I had to have them in my own home. I love the unexpected detail they add to a space and look forward to sharing my experience with the products throughout the year as Legrand's brand ambassador."
With advanced functionality and innovative features, the adorne Collection offers solutions to help simplify daily life including wave-controlled switches, app-based dimmers, Pop-Out™outlets, built-in night lights and USB chargers, as well as efficient under-cabinet lighting. The adorne Collection of designer switches and outlets features a unique square form factor and pairs with the new extended range of wall plate materials, colors and finishes – even including customizable options – to coordinate with any hardware or décor.
