From its inception, Lighting Paradise has been the product of vision, inspiration and perseverance. Upon returning from service in the United States Army, Andres Cabo took a temporary job as a lighting sales person and consultant that led him to discover a passion of a lifetime— in the lighting industry and in design. “I fell head over heels with the lighting fashion business, and the daily interaction with customers,” Andres enthuses. Together with his wife Doris, the husband-and-wife team turned their entrepreneurial venture into one of the state’s leading (and largest) lighting showrooms. “We started this business in 1992 with credit card cash advances, and now, 23 years later, we have evolved from a retail lighting showroom to actually designing lighting and selling to the public at wholesale prices,” Andres says. Located in Miami, Lighting Paradise is a full-service showroom with a focus on innovative product design and technology. “We are at the forefront of South Florida’s LED lighting movement, bringing in new, cost-saving innovations fresh from the top lighting fields,” Doris shares. In addition to leading-edge inventory, the team at Lighting Paradise is service- centric, offering “white-glove” treatment to each client. “Our first mission is to ensure not only value and pricing, but to give the client white-glove service and make sure that they are inspired by their choices in their lighting,” Andres says. Servicing a diverse clientele throughout the United States, Central America, South America and the Caribbean, Lighting Paradise offers a breadth of experience and insight into multicultural trends and design movements. “We pride ourselves in catering to every taste, style and budget to bring functional and beautiful lighting fixtures to the homes we have the pleasure of illuminating,” Andres says.
