The City of Sunny Isles Beach and Mayor Svechin Declare June 20 “Farrey’s Day” in Honor of Farrey's Lighting, Bath, Kitchen and Hardware 100th Anniversary

Farrey's Lighting, Bath, Kitchen and Hardware, a cornerstone of the South Florida community, is proud to announce it was honored by the City of Sunny Isles Beach and Mayor Larisa Svechin with a proclamation declaring June 20 “Farrey’s Day” in commemoration of its 100 years of service to the Miami-Dade community. Siblings Kevin and Paige Farrey were presented with the proclamation during a City Commission Meeting on June 20. 

Founded by John J. and Emily Farrey in 1924, Farrey’s has been a leading provider of products, technical resources and services for lighting, bath, kitchen and hardware projects. What started as a small general store that only sold hardware, linens, lighting, china, fishing gear and other home products, transformed into two 30,000-square-foot showrooms, in North Miami and Coconut Grove, with more than 25,000 in-stock SKUs – offering the largest product selection and in-stock inventory of its kind in South Florida.

Achieving 100 years of continuous operation in today’s business era is an exceptional accomplishment, not only for a small family-run business but also for a business located in a city like Miami, which was incorporated only 128 years ago and is still evolving. Farrey’s has survived the test of time, sharing this privilege with very few other Miami businesses that remain open to this day.

Each of the Farrey’s four generations has a played pivotal role in steering the company through continuous expansion, adapting to evolving landscapes, surviving economic downturns, hurricanes, a pandemic and more – all while continuing the family legacy. Today, the fourth generation of the Farrey’s family, led by CEO and Chairman Bud Farrey, has upheld its commitment to being a trusted source of unique, superior offerings and unmatched expert services.

South Florida’s rapid residential growth and the influx of new homes, condominiums and mixed-use developments continue to increase lighting, bath, kitchen and decorative hardware needs, which Farrey’s highly trained, multilingual consultants fulfill. The company guides homeowners, designers and trade industry professionals including interior designers, general contractors, builders and others in creating modern yet elegant spaces. The consultants understand clients’ aspirations and can expertly read plans/drawings, conduct onsite visits and provide problem-solving solutions, regardless of style preference and budget. 


“It’s an incredible honor to be recognized by Mayor Svechin and the City of Sunny Isles Beach for our 100 years of service and our family’s legacy,” said Bud Farrey. “2024 has been an exciting year of celebrating this remarkable milestone and this wouldn’t be possible without the Miami-Dade community, our customers and our long-time vendor partners who have trusted our team for their lighting, bath, kitchen and hardware needs for 100 years.”
