Shady is a business that sells lamps and lampshades. All these are locally sourced, printed, and folded in Copenhagen. All good things and nothing too shady really.

They are three sisters, all with a passion for vintage, recycling, and sustainability. This passion has been with them since they were kids, and they were raised with the belief, that nothing good ever should be thrown out.

Annemette started the company a couple of years ago. She is self-taught in all the processes of making a lamp and running a business. Christine has a background as an art director and is the creator of all the vivid ideas for our shades and our brand identity. Marianne has a degree in fashion design. She is great at finding creative solutions. She is also the one doing most of the manual labor, in crafting the shades and experimenting with new techniques.

Their colorful shades are printed in cooperation with a danish printing house. They have the nordic ecolabel and are FSC certified. The 3 sisters believe that in producing their shades on paper, they have the smallest impact on the environment compared to other materials.
