The History of Harold’s Lighting!

For over 60 years, Harold’s Lighting has been providing the residents of the Greater Seattle area with amazing lighting products and custom lighting solutions. We’ve been blessed to have the best customers in the nation, and have always put customer satisfaction above any of our other business goals.

Our customer service and extensive lighting knowledge is what sets us about from other Seattle lighting stores and lighting repair shops. Our Wallingford lighting store has been in the family since it’s creation, and we love everything to do with lighting! We’ve seen the industry go through some major changes and have loved seeing lighting trends come and go, and also have loved seeing creative lighting manufacturers come up with awe inspiring fixtures and installments over the years.

Through ups and downs in the economy over the past 60 years, Harold’s has evolved and stayed on top of the latest in lighting technology. We’ve adopted the changes in the lighting world with open arms–without compromising our excellent customer service.

Our custom lighting and repair shop in Seattle remains the best place to come to for fixing a broken light fixture or with plans for a custom lighting creation. Stop by our Wallingford Seattle Lighting store to see for yourself why we’ve managed to stay on top of the Seattle lighting game for over 60 years!

Harold’s Time Machine

Ever wonder what you were doing last year at this time? We do! And lucky for us, we’ve got Facebook to help us out!

This is what we were doing last year, yesterday:

Harold’s was LIVE on Facebook! Just another rainy Saturday in the Seattle lighting shop! Watch Cheryl in receiving while Kim takes us on a tour of our lighting store! This year doesn’t look much different, aside from a ton of new shades, modern pendants, chandeliers, lamps and sconces in our showroom! You gotta come check out the new light fixtures, shades and accessories we have in stock.

Oh the memories!

While we were traveling down memory lane, we found another Facebook LIVE video from early 2017. This time, a full tour of our Seattle Lighting Showroom!

Stop by our Wallingford lighting store for your own personal tour today!

We love lighting, but maybe not as much as this lady!

A friend of ours sent us this amazing video of an Englishwoman and her love for lighting, specifically chandeliers. Take a look at it here:

Now, we have a deep love for amazing light fixtures and chandeliers, and have been Seattle lighting specialists for over 50 years, but we’re not sure even we’d take it this far!

Harolds Lighting has vintage chandeliers, new chandeliers, and even custom chandeliers of all shapes, sizes and styles – Amanda Liberty would be in heaven. And we can ship internationally!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that about 1 out of 8 women in the United States (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime? It seems that everyone is effected by this widespread cancer in some way or another. Wether you someone in your immediate family is suffering from it or a neighbor, it seems to touch us all.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. The more attention is brought to the disease, the more likely people are to catch the disease in the early stages. It also helps raise money for the development of any cures or treatments for those diagnosed.

As we said before, everyone has heard of the disease “breast cancer”, but many can’t explain what it is when asked.

What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer is an uncontrolled growth of breast cells. To better understand breast cancer, it helps to understand how any cancer can develop. The disease can be caught along many different stages from 0 to IV. “Cancer occurs as a result of mutations, or abnormal changes, in the genes responsible for regulating the growth of cells and keeping them healthy. The genes are in each cell’s nucleus, which acts as the “control room” of each cell. Normally, the cells in our bodies replace themselves through an orderly process of cell growth: healthy new cells take over as old ones die out. But over time, mutations can “turn on” certain genes and “turn off” others in a cell. That changed cell gains the ability to keep dividing without control or order, producing more cells just like it and forming a tumor. “(source

Breast cancer doesn’t just target women, according to, about 2,470 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2017. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. This disease really does reach just about every person in every state.

We stand with women, men and families that have been victims of the destruction this disease can bring. Please visit and for more information about how you can get involved with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

While we love traditional light fixtures, we’ve found Pinterest to be a great source of ideas for new and modern fixtures. We’ve also seen a few DIY projects on there that have sparked some custom projects we’ve produced. While some of the DIY projects on there seem a little troublesome for the average homeowner, it can be a good source of ideas for creating custom light fixtures for your home. Get on there, check out what people are doing, then let the experts (us) help you out! We have a full service repair and custom lighting shops in our stores in Bellevue and Seattle and we’re prepared to help your lighting dreams come to life!

We’ve been busy over here at Harold’s Lighting! Our lighting stores in Seattle and Bellevue are constantly receiving new light fixtures for our showrooms and we love seeing the coolest fixtures come through our doors.
