About us

Frolic Lighting, formerly Acres Farm, have been manufacturing and supplying Candle Shades internationally since the early 1980s.

The original idea for using small Candle Shades on candles dates back to the 19th Century. Candle Shades enhance and diffuse the light from the candle flame and eliminate glare. Flattering to the complexion! The Shade sits on the ‘carrier’, and as the candle burns down, the carrier and shade move with it.

Please see the link in the sidebar to the left about safety and care for our shades.

As an alternative to real candles, Faux Candles, (e.g.Liquid Candles) may also be used.

Frolic Lighting (formerly Acres Farm) has developed this concept even further so that the same shades (on a different design of ‘carrier’) may now be used on small candle bulbs. Once the appropriate ‘carriers’ have been purchased, it is easy to transform the ambiance of a room by changing the Candle Shades.
