Whether you are looking for lighting for your dining room, a new vanity for your master bath or an upgrade on the hardware for your kitchen cabinets, Farrey’s is South Florida’s leading lighting, kitchen and bath resource. This fourth generation company is renowned for their elevated attention to design and timeless detail for inspired spaces; as well as their extensive $10 million inventory of contemporary, traditional and transitional products for every room in the home. “Farrey’s boasts the largest selection in South Florida, with over 300 new items introduced into the showroom per year,” says Paige Farrey.

Trust and convenience are two more strong reasons Farrey’s has had such a loyal customer base of athletes, coaches, celebrities, titans of industry, influencers and style-conscious homeowners for decades. “Our expertise is second to none,” continues Farrey. “We have over 52 hours of product training each year and over 100 cumulative years of experience in our sales consultants. We do factory trips and industry trade shows to stay on top of product trends, technology and design.”

The result is two glamorous showrooms filled with a unique product mix that combines high style and quality with affordability and value. Farrey’s is true one-stop shopping for lighting, bath, hardware, furniture and accessories. “The staff are trained Application Experts who assist clients with making the ‘right’ choices by asking the appropriate questions and solving problems rather than simply selling products,” says Farrey.

In-stock products can be delivered the same or next day or they can warehouse orders to consolidate free delivery (some exclusions apply to “free”) via their own fleet of trucks, which make Saturday deliveries. Both locations are open Monday through Saturday with 24-hour sales consultants and showroom appointments available.

Ultimately, it’s all about customer satisfaction. Their lighting brands are a who’s who of top names including Luceplan, Fine Art Lamps and the Hudson Valley Lighting Group — Corbett, Hudson Valley, Troy and Mitzi lighting, to name a just a few of the vast assortment of manufacturers. Fans of modern design will gravitate toward Luceplan’s design culture of aesthetic and technological research, experimentation and innovation and creative spirit that is never separated from top functional quality and efficiency. Since its founding in 1978, the award-winning company avoids any sense of formalism, instead focusing on offering technologically evolved lighting fixtures for flexible use for sincerely cutting-edge design.

At the other end of the design spectrum, for more than a century Fine Art Lamps has adhered to the highest standards of craftsmanship and durability to provide a product worthy of customers’ confidence. This singular vision is the combined efforts of over 250 skilled designers, craftsmen, artists and associates, working together to create unique works of art — a blend of Old World tradition melded with New World innovation, all in keeping with their motto: “Beauty is nothing without quality.”

What’s more, the Hudson Valley lighting group brands share a pursuit of excellence in a design-driven culture, attention to ever-changing environmental considerations and commitment to the highest possible quality. Their Corbett Lighting features striking designs, rich materials and hand-applied finishes, all of which are Corbett’s hallmarks, creating fixtures that are the center of attention in any space they adorn. Troy Lighting’s eclectic line of fixtures are at once sophisticated, casual and eye-catching, drawing from a vast range of influences while using intriguing and versatile materials. Hudson Valley Lighting spans a diverse range of styles and pieces are at once historically informed and ahead of trend. In addition,  Mitzi Lighting was inspired by the founder of Hudson Valley Lighting’s grandmother, a painter and master antique-finder. It mixes classic with contemporary, sacrificing no quality along the way. Designed with thoughtful simplicity, each fixture embodies form and function in perfect harmony. Combining less clutter with more creativity, Mitzi is attainable high design.

Farrey’s has also sought out the leading superstars of the bath products industry to represent: Victoria + Albert, Graff and Gessi, among other brands. Victoria + Albert Baths, now part of the House of Rohl, brings British craftsmanship to our shores with their glamorous freestanding tubs and basins. Formed in 1996 with a passion for tubs and bathing, the organization has dedicated South African production facilities that deliver luxurious, lasting products. “As the ultimate statement in quality and style, their model line-up is packed with inspirational free-standing designs made from 100% Englishcast, a blend of Volcanic Limestone and high-performance resins,” says Farrey. “New, exciting launches keep the brand at the forefront of international luxury bath design.”

Style leader Graff is an avant-garde manufacturer of exciting, trend-setting bathroom and kitchen fixtures. They have built their reputation as an interpreter and protagonist of modern lifestyle, bringing creativity and inspiration into many homes, and as a company, being keenly aware of human and environmental issues and values. Supported since 1922 by extensive plumbing and hardware manufacturing experience, Graff has positioned itself at the forefront of design by creating designer-based collections for the luxury market. The company employs over 1,000 dedicated professionals and has total control over the full production process, making it a truly vertically integrated manufacturer.

The new (relatively speaking) kid on the block, Gessi has been designing and manufacturing exclusive bathroom and kitchen fittings and furnishings for over 20 years. In that time, they’ve become known worldwide for fashionable bathroom designs in all types of living environments, including hotels, spas, yachts and private residences. “With creations ranging from bathroom accessories ranging from faucets, taps, rain shower and shower heads to ceramic and even precious bathroom textiles and air fresheners, Gessi has created a new style of living. “It’s a design to be experienced, to be worn and breathed,” says Farrey. “Gessi designs involve all of the senses thereby allowing the user to enjoy personal spaces that offer a new sense of well-being, a daily wellness experience in which to celebrate a renewed contact with one’s inner self.”
