Stollers, based in Barrow in Furness in Cumbria, is one of the largest independent furniture retailers in the UK.
The store’s beautiful furniture needs to be lit well to making appealing to its customers, but due to the size of the store, this means a lot of lighting and a lot of energy consumed by this lighting. The store’s owners were keen to investigate the use of LED lighting due to its low energy consumption and long lifespan, but their experience of LED lighting was that is is stark and cold, with poor light output levels.
Having previously worked with Lumenata Lighting Design on a similar project, the store’s owners had no hesitation in calling Lumenata in again to resolve the issue in its Barrow store. 450 halogen lights needed to be replaced with LED retrofits, but not before a series of samples were all tested in the store to determine the best option in terms of colour temperature, power consumption, light output and cost.
The preferred option was selected and the halogen bulbs were replaced one by one by LED equivalents, resulting in in substantial annual energy savings.
