Client Testimonials

We are writing to express our gratitude for the help and professional advice that we received from Ashley Rutter over the last two weeks. We have purchased things several times from Lightology over the last decade, but we were particularly happy with Ashley’s help. We visited the store on 2/15 to purchase some cans for our condo ceiling. We suspect this is a particularly simple order, but Ashley still spent a couple hours guiding us on options. Unfortunately, we subsequently learned that there is not enough room in our ceiling for the cans. So, we returned to the store on 2/22 to identify new solutions. Ashley quickly processed our return and then guided us through multiple options. We are excited to have our new fixtures installed in a couple weeks. Ashley represents your firm very well.

Great customer service is really, really hard to find these days.  I’ve been talking to other designers with the same complaint and I will highly recommend you any chance I get!!!  Really, you’ve been wonderful to work with, quick, knowledgeable, helpful, patient . . . Okay—now send this to your boss and go have yourself a great weekend!!!

Ashley is a gem. She has been working side by side on a condo lighting project. I am amazed by her expertise and great people skills.

I just wanted to take a moment and to let you know what a pleasure it was working with Ashley Rutter in the Chicago showroom. Ashley was a bright spot in an otherwise disaster of a renovation. Her advice was excellent and when an issue did come up she resolved it very quickly and without much discussion; which I totally appreciated. Excellent customer service is in short supply these days in most retail establishments; but Ashley really raised the bar!

My kitchen is now complete and the lighting is the crown jewel. I bought my first light fixtures over 25 years ago when you were called Tech lighting. I had a great experience back then and always looked forward to returning to create another beautiful environment.

Wow! Amazing, professional, creative, timely! 

Working with ASHLEY at Lightology is like hitting the jackpot! Ashley has so many creative ideas and was always on-time, professional and respected our budget. Working with Ashley with stress-free and one of the highlights for me during our remodeling. We went to several other lighting stores, but not one could match Lightology's collection and prices. My house is wow because of Ashley and her creative ideas!

I'm taking pictures, but they can't possibly do justice to how yummy and perfect all the fixtures.  I don't think you heard Mirella as we were leaving last weekend, but she said, "We couldn't have done it without Ashley." Thank you for your professionalism, your strict adherance to details, and your exquisite design sensibility.

Best, Mary
