Behind the Shades

Shady Business is Southwest Virginia's premier source for custom designed lamps, chandeliers, high-quality lamp shades, boutique gifts and gorgeous home decor. We offer expert lamp-repair, as well as in-home lighting design and consultation. We carry exquisite silk, linen, and parchment shades, and a large collection of fine finials to help you find the perfect finishes for your lamp.


Shady Business has served the Tri-Cities region since January 2010 when Abingdon resident Nancy Harte realized the need for a lamp repair and high-end shade shop in the Abingdon and Tri-Cities area. Since opening, Shady Business has served customers from North Carolina to California.  


Nancy's well-honed eye for design comes from over 40 years of experience in clothing, furniture and

kitchen design. Her creative vision allows her to source unusual, antique, and one of-a-kind items that make unique lamps and chandeliers. When she's not at Shady Business, Nancy helps design custom interiors with husband & co-owner Joel Harte, Southwest Virginia’s premier furniture and cabinetmaker.


Visit Shady Business to find a variety of lamps, lighting fixtures, furniture, accessories, mirrors, art work, special home accents and gifts that will bring light into any home.


Come visit Shady Business at 180 East Main Street in the heart of historic Abingdon.


We’ll have the lights on!
