About Us

Powell Accessories is a one of kind family business which has been bringing light to design since 1950.

Ethel Powell, the business founder, had a wonderful eye for unique "finds" and the more treasures she found the more her friend's sought out her advice. Before long, Ethel opened a store, and was selling and designing goods from vintage lighting to painted furniture & sculptured iron pieces. Her husband Jack, a vaudevillian, traveled the world, so Ethel fueled her passions and devoted her time to Powell Accessories. As Powell Accessories flourished into a full home design business, Ethel's son, David decided to join the business. David, left his career as an entertainer, and began designing and creating unique lighting pieces.

Generations of customers from Westchester, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York City, have enjoyed Powell's wonderful blend of expertise, personality and inspiration.  In fact, you could say that the “light” was passed from Ethel, the founder, to David and his wife, Caryl, and now their son, Brian.

The store specializes in vintage and antique lighting, restoration and lampshades and services the public and trade industry, including decorators, architects, electricians and individual businesses.

Powellaccessories.com will offer the same intrinsic “special touch” as a place for customers to discover great finds that beautify, personalize and preserve your home or business. Our goal is to bring distinctive, aesthetically pleasing and eclectic lighting to lighting aficionados everywhere.
