Capitol Lighting Expands In South Florida


Following a robust 90thth anniversary, Capitol Lighting — a leading omni-channel retailer of high quality lighting fixtures and home accessories — is expanding its presence in South Florida with new showrooms in Broward and Miami-Dade counties. The new 4,600-square-foot showroom at 1001 North Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale is set to open this fall and the 4,500-square-foot showroom in the Doral Design District is scheduled to open this winter. The additional showrooms will increase Capitol’s total retail locations to 10 and generate 15 new jobs. Capitol currently operates showrooms in Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens, Wellington, and Stuart, Florida as well as East Hanover, Eatontown, Green Brook, and Paramus, New Jersey, where the company’s family retail tradition was founded in 1924. An industry leader and respected ‘lighting authority’, Capitol features a diverse selection of 300 high-quality indoor and outdoor brands in 40 lighting categories with more than one million products available in-stores and online. Its services include lighting design for both residential and commercial spaces, in-home and in-office consultations, and installation and fixture cleaning. Open seven-days-a-week, operating hours for the two new locations (subject to change) will be Monday-Saturday: 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., Sunday: 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., evenings by appointment. “Expansion to Ft. Lauderdale and Doral was ideal as both of these locations have a vibrant design and building community,” noted Capitol President Eric Lebersfeld. “We look forward to adding great value to these dynamic and exciting residential and commercial business hubs.” He added that Fort Lauderdale is a natural extension of Capitol’s strong Palm Beach County footprint. “We have so many loyal designers who come up to our Boca store who have been begging us to open a gallery closer to their customer base. We listened and are so excited to be building out a breathtaking state-of-the-art showplace to feature the finest manufacturers from around the world.” In Miami-Dade, Lebersfeld shared that Capitol found the opportunity to join recognized retailers in the new Doral Design Center – long-known for the best tile, flooring and kitchen design in the area – of great appeal. “Greater Miami has enjoyed explosive growth in recent years, and we look forward to bringing our mission of ‘making lives brighter’ to the area.” For more information, showroom locations and hours of operation visit
