A Shade Above was started as a cottage industry in the mid 1980’s by Pat Blake. a creative entrepreneur with a background in fashion, sales and childrens’ clothing design and manufacture. Pat had noted the burgeoning interior design industry’s increasing awareness of the importance of lampshades and lighting design as key factors for success.

Pat's specific aim is to offer the best bespoke lampshades in terms of both appearance and product quality at the top end of the market. By using top quality skills and maintaining the very highest standards of workmanship with a highly trained and creative team, Pat has steadily developed A Shade Above over the decades to reach our current position as one of the worlds leading bespoke handmade lampshade makers.

Pat’s concept of knowledgeable, friendly service and top quality products, delivered on time, is the successful combination which is your guarantee when you use A Shade Above.
