Company Overview

Shades of Light started from humble beginnings in 1986 as a small, single retail location in historic Richmond, Virginia selling unique, high-style lighting designs. Since that time, the company has grown to become a national, multi-channel retailer of lighting and other home decor products, including rugs, furniture, mirrors, fans and wall decor. True to its heritage though, the company has remained singularly focus on its curated collection of high-style products and unique lighting designs, many of which are produced in-house by the companys own staff of highly trained artisans. Over several years of growth and after having outgrown its prior two locations, the companys corporate office, distribution center and production operation are now all located at the companys 115,000 square foot headquarters facility in Midlothian, Virginia where they strive to continue inspiring their customers to distinguish their unique style through their carefully curated catalog, ecommerce website, hospitality sales and Virginia-based brick-and-mortar retail locations.
