Concord Lamp and Shade, Lighting

Founded in 1976, Concord Lamp & Shade’s quaint storefront is now owned by Ann Eckert––an MIT graduate with a passion for design––who prides herself on “working with customers to support their budget and design goals to find the perfect lamp or shade to enhance their interior design.” With a newly updated website, it’s easy to select and order online at

As winter arrives, it’s time to start thinking about hunkering down, a concept that is quintessential New England. Concord Lamp & Shade can help to set the mood to cozy with rich-colored lampshades, warm glowing light (think dimmers) and plenty of well-lit nooks for reading or playing cards.  

With over 2,000 lamp shades, Concord Lamp & Shade boasts the largest selection of styles, fabrics, colors and sizes in New England. Not to mention table and piano lamps, sconces, chandeliers, pendant lights, and of course the iconic Boston Red Sox table lamp.

Here are four of our favorite lights to elevate and cozy up your space. 

1. Currey Rame Round Multi-Drop Pendant:

A chandelier is always a stunning edition to a space and this 15-light pendant is nothing short of that. Hung on the thinnest of stems, the teardrops offer a floating illusion that complements the enchanting glow cast through patterned-glass copper exteriors.

2. Wildwood Essex Floor Lamp:

When in doubt, always go brass. Whether placed in a dark-wood study or a neutral foyer, this domed adjustable lamp is a classic choice enhanced by a hand-finished antique patina.

3. Currey Bowthorpe Wall Sconce:

Nothing says cozy season quite like this upturned oak leaf sconce. Precise veining and a dark hued brushstroke finish serve to create an astonishingly realistic specimen that adds ambiance to any room.

4. Uttermost Eichler Antique Brass Mini Pendant:

This mid-century pendant design is a true must have as it effortlessly combines clear glass, oxidized antique brass and clean lines for a rich yet modest look.
