Lamps Plus Professionals, a trade program developed by lighting and home furnishings retailer Lamps Plus, celebrates more than a decade of service to the construction and design industries with a selection of new designs at the annual Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), held this year simultaneously with the International Builders’ Show (IBS) at the Las Vegas Convention Center, February 4-6, 2014. Built on more than 30 years of expertise from the Lamps Plus retail arm, the program offers professional members access to a huge selection of lighting and home furnishings at trade and volume discounts, plus dedicated account representatives to help them find exactly what they need for any project.

“As one of the nation’s longest running trade programs, we’re proud to offer trade professionals dedicated one-on-one service, plus the style and selection that consumers have long expected from the Lamps Plus brand,” explains Michael Gouel, Director of Lamps Plus Professionals Division. “We offer thousands of exclusive and proprietary customizable designs that can be specially tailored to meet a given project’s specific needs. We’re delighted to showcase a selection of these at KBIS to the many industry professionals with whom we work hand-in-hand throughout the year.”

Established in 2000, Lamps Plus Professionals is the leading trade program for residential home furnishing and lighting professionals. Founded to meet the individual needs of working interior designers, builders, contractors, electricians and architects, the program offers trade-specific benefits such as dedicated account representatives, project specification, trade and volume discounts and free shipping on the majority of items offered. It also leverages the strengths of the nation’s largest lighting retailer, with a selection of more than 60,000 lighting and home furnishing designs, a warehouse stocked with more than one million square feet of ready-to-ship merchandise, and the option for expedited in-store pick-up.

At KBIS, Lamps Plus Professionals will exhibit a wide selection of new LED lighting and the highly customizable Color+Plus™ lighting collection. Exclusive to Lamps Plus, this collection allows customers to choose from 150+ colors and a variety of fixtures for thousands of possible design combinations. “The trend is toward energy efficiency and increased customization, because for our members, one size does not fit all,” explains Gouel. “For that reason, we assign dedicated account representatives to all our partners.
