The Robert Abbey Story
In the beginning, Robert Abbey Lighting produced table and floor lights for department stores, based out of Brooklyn. At that time in 1946 everything was done in-house, from designing to manufacturing and finishing, even shade production. Once their popularity grew, Robert Abbey moved into a larger facility in North Carolina in the 1980s.
Ten years later, the company expanded further to include offices and personnel in Hong Kong. They still maintain their in-house designers in Hickory, North Carolina, and remain independently owned by the founding family.
