About Us

Family owned & operated

A Shade Above is the Carolinas’ largest family-owned and operated window coverings company, and in 2018, we celebrated more than 25 years of excellence serving the Charlotte community. Our parent company, Artisan Shutter, has manufactured custom plantation shutters in Monroe, NC, since 1993.

The ’93 Story

What began in 1993 as a small shutter manufacturing business has grown into Charlotte’s largest custom window fashions company.

For more than two decades, A Shade Above has been providing Charlotte and surrounding areas with the highest quality blinds, shades and plantation shutters. As a family owned business, we have ensured that promise has remained steadfast through the years.

Through economic downturn and unprecedented recovery, we stand with multiple showroom locations throughout the Carolinas and a mobile fleet of A Shade Above vehicles outfitting thousands of local homes with custom window treatments.
