House of Troy was founded across the Vermont border in Montreal in 1947 by Everett Bailey. In its first years, the company was a small custom lamp shop selling to gift and department stores in and around the Canadian city. The founder's son, Norm Bailey, took over the business in 1960, moved the business to North Troy, Vermont and renamed the company “House of Troy”. It was the younger Bailey who designed the tooling to make the “best picture lights available” and introduced them to stores throughout the Northeast.

       House of Troy designs and crafts all of its products to assure lasting quality. Each light crafted for you by hand to the highest degree of standards. The company also provides cabinet lighting, floor lamps, spot lights, swing-arm wall sconces, and specialty lighting.

       House of Troy® is also part of American Lighting Brands®  which has grown to become a leader in the lighting industry and includes Arroyo Craftman®, Framburg®, and Trumprints®.
