A warm welcome to Lighting Agency. Since the turn of the millennium, we have specialised in handcrafting luxurious lampshades and lighting solutions for homes and businesses across the UK.

From timeless classics, to more modern and quirky creations – our mission is to provide ideas and inspiration for our customers, fashioning lamps and shades that both accessorise and elevate their surroundings.

And no room is off limits. From lofty spaces to cosy snugs. From your every-day lounge or hallway to a trendy club, bar or restaurant, Lighting Agency has bright ideas for all.

Founded by Alistair Henderson, who remains as enthusiastic today about interior design as the day he started the business, Lighting Agency has become a popular destination for discerning buyers looking for a spark of individuality.

Farnham Shop Update

After a summer sabbatical away from the town, The Lighting Agency in Farnham has reopened its doors and, once again, will be illuminating West Street in its own unique way. Having traded in Farnham for 20 years – initially in The Lion and Lamb Yard and then at West Street - owner Alistair Henderson has cornered the market in supplying and sourcing beautiful, bespoke lamps and shades, establishing a reputation as the finest specialist lighting stockist in the area. Not just for homes, but businesses as well - especially the hospitality sector.

After a summer away from the premises, mainly due to the demands on Alistair’s time from a number of large scale, residential refurbishment projects, the Lighting Agency’s focus is now firmly back on retailing from the shop and serving the local clientele. But with a subtle change in emphasis! The store’s unrivalled expertise in lampshades remains, together with some unique lines and Alistair’s first-class restoration service. The big news, however, is that decorative antiques and brocante style items are now available at the West Street location. Drawing on years of experience stylising shops, bars and restaurants, Alistair will be treating Farnham folk to a feast of trendy decorative adornments guaranteed to add a new dimension to home styling.

Teaming up with artisan up-cyclers, customers will be treated to a wide range of wonderfully eclectic, yet immensely practical accoutrements - from tables and stools, to art nouveau fireplace buckets and accessories. You might even catch sight of an occasional fairground carousel horse! Amongst The Lighting Agency’s tasteful displays, you’re bound to find some real gems to lighten up your home. And if Alistair doesn’t have an item in stock – don’t worry. There’s no one better placed to track down exactly what you’re looking for! Drop by the shop and begin your own journey of discovery!

A Nationwide Service

Based in Farnham close to the Hampshire/Surrey border, our customers are drawn from far and wide across Britain, not just London and the Home Counties. That’s why we encourage home/site visits, because it’s only in situ that you get to see what works and what doesn’t. In the pursuit of excellence and originality, we source products from many of the leading UK and European manufacturers. At the same time, we utilise the services of talented craftsmen and women across the home décor industry who style the most wonderful bespoke lampshades in sizes, colours, fabrics and finishes to suit.

And whilst we aren’t limited to any particular genres of lamp, we are extremely proud of our Antique and Vintage Range, as well as our Olive Range.

We are also delighted that Lighting Agency acts as a dedicated agent for Kansa Lighting, which adds to our considerable resources.
