About us


Capital Lighting first opened its doors to Columbus, Ohio in 1990 with two key partnerships- M/I Homes and Maxim Lighting. While our partnerships have expanded over the past 29 years to include more than 80% of Central Ohio Builders and over 250 lighting manufacturers, our focus on long-term partnerships has never waned. It is the heart of our business!

Today, Capital Lighting has grown to become a nationally-recognized lighting distribution company with presence in three states (Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana), an online store MyLightDesigns.com, and one of the largest and most successful showrooms in the country. Additionally, we’ve gained tremendous experience in working with regional and national developers, combining 25 years in supporting large, multi-unit restaurants and retail chains, while positioning Capital Lighting as a preferred expert in the area of commercial lighting design and product fulfillment.  

Our success in growing within each of these areas can be attributed to our focus on partnerships but also the unique value we bring to our customers through expertise in the field of lighting design. Our staff of 15 ALA-credentialed lighting design specialists is equipped to assist not only in the aesthetics but also the technical requirements for a great lighting design.

As we continue to grow, our focus will always remain on the partnerships we have developed and the lighting design expertise that we can provide to our customers!
