originated in the downtown section of Raleigh, North Carolina in 1925 when two merchants joined together to form an appliance and lighting company. When doors were opened, there were towns in the surrounding area that had only acquired electricity a few years earlier.
. . . the obsession for CURATING THE BEST IN EXQUISITE AND RARE INTERIOR ACCESSORIES
The business moved from the downtown district to Cameron Village in 1978. Cameron Village, completed in 1949, was the first shopping center of its kind in the southeastern United States. The family has owned businesses, including a children's clothing store, a long-established soda shop, and a restaurant within the complex since it first opened. We called the shopping mecca home for 33 years.
In order to accomodate the need for more space, Thompson-Lynch, the "Home Base of the George V Collection (& George!)," has recently relocated to 2123 Atlantic Avenue, at the intersection of Whitaker Mill Road.

George and Debbie Viall, partners in life and business, own the Thompson Lynch Company store. As George has been taking on new ventures, Debbie has become the beautiful face that customers see when they visit the store. George has reconciled himself to being second (yes, number 2) behind Debbie's popularity in representing the longstanding brand and hard-earned reputation for supreme service. George occasionally does find himself trying to help a customer, only to find they are "waiting for Debbie…"
George has mused that occasionally he sees a puzzled look on a customer's face that seems to say "he must be new here…."
Superior, quality work at a reasonable price is the mission of Thompson Lynch. Eighty percent ( 80% ) of the custom products are made on-site in our shop.
Debbie, George and the rest of the Thompson Lynch staff DO take the time to learn their customers preferences, and enjoy helping each client find or create the perfect design solution incorporating lamps, finials (many custom-made), chandeliers, original art, frames, ceramics, furnishings, jewelry and various exquisite accessories.
… Customers Trust our Aesthetic!
They oftentimes bring us a favorite collectable, an heirloom, or a sentimental item to re-imagine and transform into a lamp.
For 36 years, building friendships along with the signature unique lamps ~ created, imagined….
