Our Story

 A very young George in rafters at Boone Road.    DF King, Sr. and his daughter, Adele King

First CatalogLike so many great American business stories, ours starts as a family business housed in an out building of an old house, in a very small town.  The King family was quite prominent in what was then known as Leaksville and operated, among other things, an antique store.  DF King, Sr. had a passion for gasoliers and enjoyed the challenge in converting them for use with electricity.  With an “aha” moment, he decided to design his own chandeliers, and King’s Chandelier Company was born.

We may be a bit overly proud of the number of 2nd and 3rd generation of customers that we have, but we consider it a great testament to our business and how we treat our customers.  It is important to each one of us that you purchase the right chandelier for you and your budget.

At King’s Chandelier, our simple motto is “We want you to look at your chandelier and LOVE it!”  And our favorite thing to hear from our customers is “we still love our chandelier”.

We are employee owned and each and every one of us more than takes pride in what we do.  We regard our product as a representation of the best that we are.  Call us and you will most likely speak with an owner – someone who has spent decades working with our crystal chandeliers and sconces.
