Announcement   Influenced by American Folk Art, the Arts and Crafts Movement, Japanese Akari lanterns, and Bauhaus, our shades have been likened to fire-light and glasswork with two distinct life forms -- unlit they are fine art prints, and electrified they are glowing works of art. Our fusion aesthetic continues to evolve with a consistent design goal – create enduring and beautiful functional design. Belfast Bay Shade Co. lamp shades can be found locally in Maine galleries, gift shops, lighting and interior design showrooms spanning Portland to Mount Desert Island, in more than a dozen US cities and towns and as far away as Mantova, Italy. We’re located on the top floor of the historic Belfast post office and our print studio and lighting showroom are open to the public… just let us know when you’re in town.

The lamp shades are absolutely beautiful and are a great addition to our room. Not only that, but Dina was a pleasure to deal with and the shades were delivered right on time. I highly recommend Belfast Bay Shade Company.

About

Inspired by the wild and cultivated plants that we find in our gardens, fields, and woods, our shades bring a piece of Maine indoors year-round.

Belfast Bay Shade Company is a small, fast growing artisanal workshop that specializes in fine art lampshades, lighting, and home decor accessories.

Our Linen lampshades are printed with color-fast dyes on a linen/cotton blend in an eco-friendly facility and constructed by hand with love in our Belfast studio. All of our shade designs come from images pulled off our etching presses, using printing plates that we’ve created. Our shades are made with durable domestically-sourced materials. We pay a great deal of attention in our making process and each shade is looked over more than 5 times before it’s signed and shipped. All of our linen motifs can be easily adapted to colors and tones that suit your needs and aesthetic tastes. Contact us about custom colors.
