About Capitol Lighting
For more than 85 years, the lighting experts at Capitol Lighting's retail light fixture stores have helped customers find the perfect premier lights plus home fixtures from the largest selection of lighting products– from lamps to elegant bathroom chandeliers, modern shades, and more--at the most affordable prices available. The light store and its eight lighting showrooms are the offspring of a family retailing tradition that dates back to 1924, when Max Lebersfeld, an electrical contractor and immigrant from Austria-Hungary, opened the first light store in Newark, N.J.
Four generations later, Capitol Lighting has expanded the concept to four locations in New Jersey, four in southeast Florida and worldwide online at 1-800Lighting.com. Among their many awards, the readers of New Jersey Monthly magazine recently voted Capitol Lighting as the "Best of New Jersey 2010" for "Where to Shop for Lighting." Additionally, peers and fellow industry professionals have nominated Capitol Lighting for the seventh time for the prestigious ARTS Award for "Best Lighting Showroom" in the East Atlantic.
