Our Story

Alan and Brianne are back in Hampton Falls, NH. They sold The Harbor Lights in 2007 but are happy to be back to the old location with a new name: Lighting by the Sea.

They have brought back the great selection of lighting that they were known for, all well-priced, plus hundreds of lampshades and expert help from laying out lighting for a new home to fitting a lampshade to your lamp. They feel like they have come home. Alan and Brianne have missed the business and their friends and customers.

They are joined by their daughter, Kate. After four years of teaching first grade, she is excited by this new opportunity. Kate is 3rd generation in lighting, as her grandparents sold lamps, lampshades, and handmade copper lanterns from the Heritage Shop in Wolfeboro, NH from 1960-1977.

Also back is Joel Weaver, a well known lighting designer in the Seacoast.

Lighting by the Sea, an independent lighting showroom.

We work with a wide range of projects from new home construction to remodeling to updating your dining room chandelier. Please feel free to call for an appointment to meet with one of our specialists for a custom lighting layout. You may bring in blueprints or drawings (hand-drawn sketches will do) and we will be happy to work with you or your architect or builder to meet all your lighting and electrical needs.

New Construction Design Services

As a leader in the area’s construction industry, Lighting By The Sea provides builders and contractors with the best product and service in residential lighting. We know there are many places you can purchase electrical supplies. Our goal is to achieve and maintain that one degree of separation. Our commitment to this mission is to first understand our customers business.

We understand the process of home construction and the various pieces that have to come together to complete the project. This can be a difficult and stressful process as well. We pledge to assist and manage the electrical and lighting portion of the project by communicating and coordinating with the builder, the electrical contractor and the homeowner in order to meet the needs of everyone involved.

During the construction of a new home or a home remodel everyone wants to make their backsplash pop, their quartz or granite counter tops to sparkle or their floors show off their true color and detail. Though lighting is one of the last pieces to the project it is also the most important. Lighting helps create and sell the look you’re looking for.

Simply stated, we intend to be the best supplier in the markets we serve with the products we represent. We know our continued growth only comes by meeting and exceeding your expectations.
