Pego Lamps has been providing top-quality lighting to homes and businesses in South Florida since 1980.
A family owned and operated business, Pego Lamps features quality lighting for sale in two locations. They also offer lighting, lighting accessories and home decorating items on their Pego Lamps website at www.pegolamps.com. The flagship store continues to operate from its original home at 5407 SW Eighth St. The second location, an elegant showroom is something of a landmark at 9855 S. Dixie Hwy.
“We keep our inventory up to date. And it is not limited to our showroom. We can order what the customer likes from a large number of suppliers,” said Alexis Perez, manager of the Pinecrest location.
At Pego Lamps, the Perez family understands that lighting is a necessity that has been transformed into an art form. From the early oil lamps fancifully fashioned in clay and bronze, to the palatial splendor of crystal chandeliers, to today’s infinite variety of styles and materials, adding light to our lives continues to rely heavily on aestheticism.
Lighting can enhance your décor, make mundane tasks more interesting and often can function as a work of art. The Perez family identifies the best suppliers for high-quality lighting, featuring the very finest attributes from Europe: blown and colored glass from Italy, Bohemian crystal from the Czech Republic and cast bronze from Spain.
With customers from all over the world, interior designers and contractors among those who patronize Pego Lamps, the Perez family has earned a reputation for excellent service and superior products, honed over 30 years.
Keeping up with the latest trends in lighting while maintaining a healthy inventory of more classical fixtures is another reason Pego Lamps continues to succeed. Also they and their extremely knowledgeable staff are on hand to assist with remodeling advice and in spotting what the future of lighting will be.
“LED lighting is definitely going to continue to gain in popularity for its energy-effectiveness alone. But I don’t think incandescent lighting is going out of our lives, either — there will continue to be applications for it,” Alexis said.
Pego Lamps is a family success story that started in Puerto Rico when Alexis’ father began selling lighting supplies doorto- door in 1973. Originally from Cuba, the family fled the Castro regime and started life a new in the United States.
