Bedding and home furnishing retailer, The Furniture Row Companies, has installed Cree’s LRP-38 LED spotlights in its specialty furniture showrooms across the U.S. The specialty furniture stores include Denver Mattress Company, Bedroom Expressions, Oak Express and 330 Sofa Mart.
Cree develops LED lighting systems and semiconductors for wireless and backlighting applications. Approximately 13,000 Cree LRP-38 LED lights have been deployed. The 11 W Cree LED lights are being used to replace 90 W halogen lights.
The Planning Coordinator of Furniture Row store, Rod Schnurr stated that the shopping center installed Cree LED lightings and saved as much as $4,200 every month when compared to the original lighting system. The Cree LRP-38 spotlights reduce heat output and save air conditioning expenses. The company is also looking forward to reduce maintenance expenditures as the LED lights are durable and offer a lamp life of 50,000 h, Schnurr said.
Cree LED Lighting’s Director of National Accounts, Craig Lofton informed that the LRP-38 LED spotlight is ideal for retail settings as it is long-lasting and energy-efficient and does not compromise on the quality of light required to light up the products.
