About Us

Jim Hoyle, Lamp Doc, owner of Hoyle Industries Inc. Lamp Shade Outlet since 1979 Jim Hoyle (Lamp Doc)

In 1979 I started my career as a wholesale furniture rep selling lamps, furniture and home décor to retail stores throughout Tennessee, Virginia, North and South Carolina. I soon formed Hoyle Fine Lamps © and we began making table and floor lamps as a side business. After 3 years, I was able to hire other sales reps in many states and devote full time to my lamp business. Our first warehouse and assembly building was completed in 1987. We were fortunate to grow our business and in 1990 we completed a new larger building on Lithia Inn Road in Lincolnton, N.C. In order to increase our retail sales, Lamp & Home Outlet was built at 2233 East Main Street in October of 2006.

Our Business: Lamp shades, glass shades, unique and custom lamps, lighting, pendant lights, Tiffany, antique and mica lamps. Most of our new lamps and lighting come from special situation purchases such as business closings, cancelled orders, financial distress or some other one time event. We specialize in unique and highly discounted fine quality lighting. Most are 1 of a kind or pairs with little or no back stock. Our antique lamps are acquired from a wide range of sources including through our website, pickers, auctions, etc.

We do everything imaginable for lamps and shades including comprehensive lamp and shade repair and restoration, custom lamp shades and lamp appraisals. We also provide replacement glass shades which our artists can hand paint to match your lamp base.

In some respects we are like an old world shop, in other ways a modern retailer offering a wide variety of lampshades and unique pendant lights and custom lighting fixtures. Many items are not available in stores or other websites, so we do not use a shopping cart. Call us to speak to a live person 6 days a week or email us and we promise a quick response.

Customer Service is Our # 1 Priority Since 1979: Whenever an inquiry is related to a previous order, it receives top priority. We interrupt other activities in order to provide the service required by our existing customer. Service orders do not enter a sequence queue like production orders. As a consumer I would love to be treated by each company that I deal with on this same level. We view each new customer as a treasure hopefully returning to us and recommending their family members, neighbors, business associates and everyone with whom they come in contact.

Email or call for help or questions about lighting. Our store is a warm and friendly place where visitors become friends. Welcome to the heart of North Carolina furniture.  Map
