          Since 1939, Newel has inspired international collectors and designers with one of the most extensive decorative and fine arts galleries in the world. A 4th-generation family business, Newel's roots are firmly planted in New York, where we continue the tradition as the world’s premier decorative arts resource for distinguished private collectors and industry-leading designers from all around the world.

 

From our vast 30,000 item collections to our curated gallery, we inspire our clients to discover the magic moment when classic style meets modern elegance. Our eclectic collection boasts works from around the globe, with classic pieces dating from the 17th- to 21st-centuries, in addition to a trove of contemporary works, Newel original designs, and art. Our collection is split between a 9000-square-foot curated gallery in the Interior Arts Building, and a nearby 60,000-square-foot warehouse in Long Island City; both locations are open to the public.        

Staff

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.
