          ABOUT US

For four generations, Newel has inspired international collectors and designers with one of the most extensive decorative and fine arts galleries in the world.

A family business since 1939, our roots are firmly planted in New York, where we spent our earliest days furnishing some of Broadway’s most fabled productions. Today, we continue the tradition as the world’s premier decorative arts resource for distinguished private collectors and industry-leading designers.

We offer a range of rare antiques and vintage finds that span centuries and styles, enabling our clients to find unique pieces with which they can furnish their homes.

Newel’s current collection boasts well over 40,000 extraordinary works from around the globe, with classic pieces dating from the 17th- to 21st-centuries, in addition to a trove of contemporary original designs and reproductions, such as Karl Springer, Gary Dipasquale, Robert Lee Morris, along with its own Newel Modern Collection.

In 2015, we celebrated a significant expansion, with our curated services now offered at two new locations: A 9,000 square foot gallery in Manhattan for our ever-changing collection, and a 65,000 square foot showroom and warehouse in Long Island City reminiscent of our previous and storied home on east 53rd street. Since then, Newel expanded its Long Island City warehouse location to a total of 130,000 sqft.

In 2023 Newel also expanded its business by acquiring Gary Rubinstein Antiques and Modern Design Inventory along with taking over his gallery space in Hollywood Florida in the South Florida Design Park.

The Newel team is committed to continually growing and strengthening our relationships with our clients. Our knowledgeable staff is always available to answer any questions you may have and provide assistance in picking the perfect piece for your home. We look forward to helping you find something special!        


Jake Baer Chief Executive Officer

Newel is a family company. The company, which was founded by Jake’s great-grandfather Meyer Newman in 1939, began as a prop house, filling out the sets of Broadway productions. Rentals remained the primary offering of the company for some 30 years, before the second part of the business—the antiques and decorative-arts gallery—came into fruition in the 1970s as collectors began approaching Newman about selling some of his rarer or more valuable artifacts. When Jake Baer stepped into his role as CEO in 2016, he became the fourth in his family line to run the company. Jake, like his predecessors, grew up around the company and worked in a variety of supporting roles—doing stints in the shipping, carpentry, accounting, and sales departments—before taking the reins. For him, those early experiences growing up in the thick of the business still inform his vision today. -artnet 2017

Kiel Wuellner President

A Minnesota native who migrated to New York 10 years ago, Kiel Wuellner’s passion for interior design and architecture was ingrained in him since birth. Descending from a long line of interior decorators and antiques dealers, Kiel began his work in the shelter industry at just age 16, working after school with a custom home builder as a realtors assistant and finish material specifier. From there, he transitioned to the real estate business, making his first sale of a multi-million dollar custom property at age 18.

Studying historic preservation and community studies in college, Kiel committed fully to interior design after the passing of his mother, an aspiring interior decorator herself and Kiel’s greatest inspiration. His well-established love of fine art, balance in decor, and historic spaces allowed for a seamless transition into the world of design, and he was soon managing showrooms, overseeing product and brand development, managing sales and marketing teams and serving as Design Director for David Scott Interiors and other high profile brands.
