Your shop is a stage and your products are the leading actors. Our eyes tend to follow the light, so a careful balance of accent and contrast can prove invaluable in focusing the shoppers attention. Accents lighting needs to be flexible so you can reposition it as the products and collections change. Racks and shelves can be lit from the ceiling or by direct light on the shelves. And by using the correct colour temperature, such as warm light for leather goods and cool tones for suits, your merchandise will always be shown in the very best light.
Shops often have interesting architectural features, both inside and outside. By accentuating them with careful lighting you can make the store more interesting for the shopper.
