Accent Lighting to open Central Oregon showroom in January

Lake Oswego-based Accent Lighting will open a showroom in downtown Redmond in January 2016. To celebrate the opening several events will be held throughout February, as well as opportunities for builders and interior designers to earn free continuing education units (CEUs).

“We’re a small company but that makes us more flexible and adaptable,” said Bob Warmbold, founder of Accent Lighting. “The new location in Redmond will give people in Central Oregon access to a wide range of contemporary lighting solutions and ideas, along with expert advice from a professional, passionate staff. We intend to stay true to the values that have made the Lake Oswego location so successful for two decades.”

Since opening in 1996, Warmbold has made customer service, education and networking the pillars of his business. He credits the superior knowledge and training of his staff with getting the company through the darkest days of the recession. According to Warmbold, training never stops at Accent Lighting. There are always new products entering the market, and the needs and expectations of consumers are continuously shifting. Staff members work as a team to ensure everyone is up to speed on the latest innovations.
