About The Lighting Superstore – Over 35 Years of Experience
1979: Our journey started almost 40 years ago when we started manufacturing our own handmade lampshades under the name BCG Shades. During this time the company grew and manufacturing facilities were expanded.
1980: Our lampshades were regarded very highly within the industry, owing mainly to the quality of materials used and the attention to detail in every single lampshade.
1999: After 20 years we expanded into the lighting retail industry and opened our first retail shop and website. The retail shop was mainly a factory outlet showcasing lampshades. We also offered bespoke lampshades to customers own specifications. Over the following 2 years our retail outlet expands into a showroom, we build relationships with lighting manufactures switching from supplying them with our lampshades to us retailing their products.
2002: The entire retail operation is rebranded and The Lighting Superstore is born and launched online.
