All the hit TV shows filmed on location in New York need props. Where most of them go, is Props for Today.

When Carrie Bradshaw is finished with her designer cushions, and Jerry Seinfeld is sick of his couch, Props for Today moves in for the kill. They pick up the pre-loved items and sell them off to the adoring public. With moderate price tags that detail the very public life of the merchandise, (like which CSI episode or Letterman show a piece was used on), it's a great way to live - or at least decorate - like the stars.

Founded in 1980, Props for Today is unrivalled in this exclusive field, and carries nearly a million items. All the things you'll see in the living rooms and offices of Everybody Loves Raymond, Law & Order SVU and the studios of Saturday Night Live. All kinds of props - antique to ultra modern. Ornaments, furniture, electrical appliances, flatware, crockery and cutlery - you can find everything you need.

Props for Today has a whole host of different rental deals. You can hire equipment for a weekend party, a relocation, or if you're preparing to sell your property and want to make a star studded impression. They've supplied props for a range of feature films like The Bourne Ultimatum, The Devil Wears Prada, and Night at the Museum. As well as TV shows such as 30 Rock, The Sopranos, and The Today Show have had the stylish Props for Today touch.

Many commercials, music videos and theater productions look authentic thanks to the "little things" supplied by Props for Today.
They have hundreds of different themes to suit any event, photo shoot, party or celebration.

Props for Today keeps their collection current - constantly sourcing and adding new pieces, which means there's always plenty to choose from.

So next time you're watching Sex and the City, and find yourself drooling over one of Charlotte's gorgeous antique lamps, rock on down to Props for Today - and you might just be able to pick it up for a song.

Props for today has an amazing showroom located at 330 West 34th Street between 8th and 9th avenues.
