The Seascape Lamps Story

Based near the California coast, Seascape Lamps is a lighting brand founded by designer Mike Shenk in 1980. At first, the company was a small operation he started out of his garage in Santa Cruz, CA, and since then, Seascape Lamps has become known for their unique—and extensive—range of lighting designs.

The brand is still predominantly known for their pendant lamps; in particular their drum pendants, which are offered in a variety of woven fabrics, silks and wood veneers. Seascape Lamps now collaborates with a large group of designers who contribute different designs for the shades that are printed in-house.

Why We Love Seascape Lamps Lighting

In addition to their standard shade options, Seascape Lamps has a portfolio of over 500 different fabric patterns and colors, so the sky’s the limit when it comes to customization for both commercial and residential projects. Plus, every fixture is designed and handmade in California, not only guaranteeing the quality of each light but also adding a nice personal touch to each one.

Fun Facts About Seascape Lamps

In addition to the contemporary designers Seascape Lamps works with, the brand also is licensed exclusively with Shaheen’s Designs. The tropical patterns and colors were originally designed by Alfred Shaheen (1922-2008) who is famous for designing, printing and manufacturing the Hawaiian shirt.

Noteworthy Products from Seascape Lamps

The Seascape Lamps Twist Pendant layers two classic drum shapes, then surprises by adding angles to the base of each tier. The effect is quite dramatic, especially when choosing different colors and textures for the top shade. The second tier shade is always in white, helping to diffuse the surrounding light in addition to the soft light shining through the frosted base.
