About Us

Since 1939, Newel Props has been at the intersection of history and innovation, establishing itself as the premier source for props and decorative arts. Our journey began in New York, where we started by furnishing Broadway's iconic stages, evolving over four generations into the world's foremost decorative arts resource for the entertainment industry and distinguished private collectors alike.

A Legacy of Passion for Props

Our legacy is built on a deep-rooted passion for props—a passion that has driven our family-owned business for over eight decades. From the grandeur of fine period antiques to the sleek sophistication of contemporary designs, our inventory encompasses every style and era, reflecting our commitment to sourcing unique pieces that inspire creativity and bring projects to life.

Unrivaled Collection

With a curated collection of over 40,000 extraordinary works from across the globe, Newel Props boasts an unparalleled selection of items dating from the 17th to the 21st centuries. Our dedication to exploring the newest ideas in design, art, and culture means our inventory is constantly expanding, offering our clients an endless array of options to enhance any setting or theme.

Broadening Industry Partnerships

Beyond our foundational work with movie and TV production companies, Newel Props has forged strong partnerships across various industries. Our expertise enriches fashion runways, window displays, photoshoots, and events, providing a touch of authenticity and elegance. Whether it's setting the scene for a high-fashion editorial or adding character to a corporate event, our props are integral to creating memorable and engaging experiences.
