About Us

Cookeville_TN_Lamp_and_LighthouseSwitch Perfect is a product created by The Lamp and Lighthouse. We are a family-owned lighting store located in Cookeville, Tennessee. Alfred and Janice Ballinger started the business back in 1974, and they still own and operate the store today with the help of their daughters, sons-in-law, grandchildren, and close family friends.

The Lamp and Lighthouse can be found on the Courthouse Square in downtown Cookeville at the corner of Broad Street and Washington Avenue. We are located in the historic Terry Brothers Building, which had been home to Terry Bros. Department Store for decades. We serve the Upper Cumberland area of Middle Tennessee and beyond.

Staff_Lamp_and_LighthouseOur store offers many wonderful products for the home including lighting fixtures, ceiling fans, lamps, lamp shades, art, and home accessories. We also sell lamp parts and replacement globes, as well as offering lamp repair and chandelier/fixture repair.

Over our many years in the lighting business, we came to realize that there was a need for a larger lamp switch that was easy to turn. We often had customers looking for such a product for themselves or for a loved one with arthritis or other disabilities. We wanted to help people turn on their lamps more easily.

Lamp_and_Lighthouse_LogoIn 2013, we were blessed with the idea of Switch Perfect – a better way for people to turn on their lamps. Thus began a line of lamp switches that are both fun and functional…pretty and practical. It is our great pleasure to help people and to brighten their day with Switch Perfect. It is our goal to help people enjoy happiness with every turn!
