Capitol Lighting: A Family Retailing Tradition for Over 90 Years

Capitol Lighting’s eight stores are the offspring of a family retailing tradition that dates back to 1924, when Max Lebersfeld, an electrical contractor and recent immigrant from Austria-Hungary, opened a light fixture store in Newark, NJ.

Four generations later, Capitol Lighting has expanded the concept to four locations in New Jersey and four in southeast Florida and Capitol Lighting was given the award for New Jersey’s Family Business of the Year. Today, says Owner and President Herman Lebersfeld, “we have the largest inventory on hand and on display of any lighting retailer in the country.”

Capitol Lighting today continues operating on these principles.

The typical Capitol Lighting store spans 12,000 square feet, which allow room for a huge selection. While many lighting showrooms boast a wide selection, Capitol Lighting actually delivers.  Featuring everything from outdoor lighting to crystal chandeliers, Capitol Lighting showrooms feature a wide variety of styles and inventory to choose from.

South Florida locations offer an extensive showroom space and have an experienced Capitol Lighting sales team that can aid you in choosing from their thousands of designs.  From Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens, Stuart and Wellington Florida locations, Capitol Lighting’s Florida locations offer customers a wide variety of styles to choose from. Capitol Lighting has four additional stores in New Jersey!  Capitol Lighting has showrooms in East Hanover, Eatontown, Paramus and Green Brook–New Jersey locations convenient for most Tri-State residents!
