Hi! We're Lindsay and Dave, and we're pretty excited because we just purchased this amazing paint and lighting company. This is us on May 11, 2018. But before us, there is a great story about how this amazing company came to be.
In 2002, Rick and Micky Iutzi moved to Muskoka to purchase Gravenhurst Paint and Wallpaper, located on the main street of Gravenhurst. The location was already operating as a paint store, so they added their personal touch and continued to provide a high quality of service. In 2005, they decided to extend their adventure by also becoming part of the Living Lighting franchise. Rick and Micky quickly realized that blending these two product types together in one store was a perfect match. Colour is affected by light, and the right light is necessary to fully appreciate beautiful colour.
By 2006, Rick and Micky were ready to open a second location in Bracebridge, on Muskoka Rd., 118 W. Having a second lighting showroom provided an opportunity to both showcase different designs and finishes from a wider range of suppliers, and to increase the selection available to their customers in Muskoka.
Fast forward a little bit … I (Lindsay) had been working at both stores for two years when an opportunity to purchase the business came about. With my extensive background in retail, design, and a love of colour, and Dave’s background in retail management it was the perfect fit for the next chapter of our lives.
Both of us, along with our incredible staff, look forward to many years of serving both these wonderful communities. We’ll be building relationships, while providing continued excellent customer service, fantastic products, and great advice. We have a few exciting changes planned for the next leg of this adventure, so keep checking in with us to see how we will grow next.
