About Us

After Dark Lighting is an independent family owned business with over fifty years trading experience in decorative lighting.

We operate a large lighting showroom in Derby where a huge array of lighting products from period traditional, to the latest innovations in technology and design can be viewed. Our ranges are selected not only to give you a wide choice of products covering just about every application, but to also offer you what we believe to be the best in quality and value for money.

In addition to our retail showroom, we also offer our products for sale on this website. Whilst it is not possible to show everything here that we display in our showroom, you will find an excellent range of products available to buy online. We constantly update the website to ensure that we bring you the latest designs as they become available.

Whether you visit us online or in store, our friendly and knowledgeable staff members are always on hand to help with any enquiry you may have no matter how small or large. Unlike many companies we make our products and services available to you at the same price in store as online.

We sincerely hope that your experience of this website and our store is positive and we always welcome feedback which can be left via our Contact Page, website helpline, or by contacting our store directly.
