Sonia doesn’t sell you lighting, she educates you. She takes the time to review every plan, every idea, and every dream book clients share with her. She understands the importance of these details and creates not only what they want, but what they didn’t know they could have for their homes or businesses.


The staff at the Lighting Gallery are wonderful people to work with! They were so very helpful when I was shopping for light fixtures and went above and beyond to make sure I was completely satisfied with my purchase. I recommend them to others whenever I can!


I can’t rave enough about the fantastic service Jerrod and I received at the Lighting Gallery. All of the choices one needs to make when building a new home can be overwhelming, but Sonia made selecting all of our lighting and mirrors an enjoyable process. She understood our taste and helped us select pieces that have become conversation pieces in our home. I can’t wait to work with her again; selecting accessories for a finishing touch!! Thank You!!!


Writing a testimonial for The Lighting Gallery is a great opportunity to share my experiences there. It’s one of my ” go to” stores! There’s always something new to see, lighting and home decor is awesome and is always displayed creatively. The owners of the store are fantastic and are so people oriented, as well as their employees. And certainly not to forget the wonderful and memorable holiday party they have each year. Fabulous food, prices and drawings always make it a must to attend . Thank you Lighting Gallery for being a part of our Grand Forks community!!


Thanks to the sconces we bought at Lighting Gallery, we were able to make our son’s room look completely different! We changed out the old lights in the room, and now the new lights look modern, and the brightness is amazing! We have referred some friends to the Lighting Gallery, and they love their new fixtures too. We will definitely be coming back to buy more fixtures for our house. The quality is excellent, and the customer service is beyond fantastic. The employees are knowledgeable and helpful in every way to us.


Sara was simply amazing during the process of picking out lighting for our new home. Starting with a blank slate, she was able to help us envision our new home and the lighting needs. She helped us pick out options that would best suit our personality as well as keeping cost in mind. I would definately recommend Sara and the Lighting Gallery to anyone in the market for lighting and great decor!


Excellent customer service and nice variety of home lighting and decor.


I appreciate the help and suggestions whenever I go to The Lighting Gallery!! I also love the modern looks/choices available!


I love that The Lighting Gallery has unique and stylish lighting that I can’t find at the big box stores.


They have wonderful customer service. I got the wrong finish on a ceiling fan and they had no problem ordering in the correct finish and exchanging it for me. It was no problem at all.


We will be doing a kitchen/dining room remodel along with an addition and finish our basement! I would use the gift card for our new lighting fixtures.


I Love all of my accessories that I have Purchased there! Lots of friendly help too!
