Farrey’s Lighting, Bath, Kitchen and Hardware Celebrate 100 Years in Miami

The company boasts showrooms in North Miami and Coconut Grove.

Farrey’s Lighting, Bath, Kitchen and Hardware marked its 100th anniversary of serving the South Florida community in 2024. The family-owned company has been a top provider of distinctive, high-quality products and excellent professional service. Farrey’s held a special 100th Anniversary Celebration at its North Miami Showroom to commemorate a century of service and future innovations. The event was attended by VIP guests, including community leaders and Farrey’s long-standing partners, such as architects, general contractors, real estate agents, and designers. They had the exclusive opportunity to explore Farrey’s North Miami Showroom and interact with CEO and Chairman Bud Farrey and other executives.

During the event, Farrey’s received three proclamations from Miami-Dade County Governmental and Community Affairs Liaison Melonie Burke, North Miami Councilman Scott Galvin, and North Bay Village Mayor Brent Latham, highlighting Farrey’s dedication and commitment to the Miami-Dade community. The upscale event featured various elegant elements and photo opportunities, such as a retro photo booth, a 100th-anniversary-themed ice sculpture, and a Fiat gelato car from Dolce Vita Gelati. A live violinist entertained and engaged with the guests throughout the event as they enjoyed complimentary wine, beer, and hors d’oeuvres.

“It’s an honor to celebrate this remarkable milestone and the Farrey’s legacy,” Bud Farrey says. “It’s been a pleasure to serve our community for the past 100 years. Our customers are like family to us, and this wouldn’t be possible without them and our long-time vendor partners who have trusted our team for their lighting, bath, kitchen and hardware needs.” 

Since its establishment in 1924 by John J. and Emily Farrey, Farrey’s has been a top supplier of products, technical resources, and services for lighting, bath, kitchen, and hardware projects. Starting as a small general store selling hardware, linens, lighting, china, fishing gear, and other home products, Farrey’s has always remained dedicated to providing exceptional and distinctive offerings and unparalleled expert services.

The Farrey family’s fourth generation is upholding its tradition of exceptional service by offering the most extensive product selection and in-stock inventory in South Florida. Boasting over 25,000 in-stock SKUs and two 30,000-square-foot showrooms, one in North Miami (built in 1980) and the other in Coconut Grove (established in 2002), the company’s enduring success is attributed to its strong local, national, and international vendor partnerships and commitment to providing excellent service to South Florida trade professionals.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
