Entrepreneurs launch region’s biggest concept showroom in a burst of bubbly

Representatives from leading brands in the lighting industry joined guests and customers to celebrate the opening of the new 7,000sq ft i-lite showroom by Birmingham residents and entrepreneurs Kiran and Veena Bhambra. Champagne and canapés from Nathan Eades (restaurant Epi) were served at the launch of the region’s largest lighting concept store located in the burgeoning hotspot of Soho Hill, which further establishes the Midlands as a hub for world-class commerce and a showcase for innovative design.
