Philips is buoyant about its plans to consolidate its retail presence in Uttarakhand and North India by opening more Light Lounges and Light Shoppes (Shop-in-shops) in the coming months.

The Philips Home Decorative Lighting range is a unique offering in the market to cater to the evolving lifestyle needs of global Indians. The market for decorative lighting is currently inundated with unbranded cheap imports that do not always satisfy energy efficiency and safety norms. Philips differentiates its offerings through innovation in design, energy efficiency and application of its global lighting application expertise.
