Opened in 1963, Gracious Home began as a neighborhood hardware store on the Upper East Side. Nuts. Bolts. Nothing fancy. As everyone knows, New Yorkers don’t exactly fall over themselves every time a new shop cuts its ribbon—but our dedicated staff made Gracious Home stand out. Every person who walked through the door was given the red carpet treatment. Will you deliver it? Of course. Can you install it? Our pleasure. Can you find one in chartreuse? We'll scour the globe. Whether our customers wanted special tiles from Portugal, baskets from Bora Bora, or reproductions of antique finials hand-finished by Italian monks, our retail gurus found it for them. Naturally, word spread like wildfire, and soon Gracious Home had a devoted following. Our store became famous for great taste and great service. We grew. We opened more stores. We ventured into every area of housewares imaginable, collecting an ever-growing inventory of magnificent discoveries from around the world.
To this day, the Gracious Home tradition of exceptional customer care lives on. It is with a relentless drive to provide the best service to the most discerning patrons that Gracious Home retail gurus manage our unique stores, now part of the communities on the Upper West Side and Upper East Side, as well as in Chelsea. The sales associates at Gracious Home are trained experts of their departments, conveying knowledge on subjects ranging from tough stain removal to the difference between ambient and transitional lighting.
Gracious Home is not your ordinary home goods store. It is a premier New York establishment, with a historical patronage from American icons, as well as top interior designers. A true purveyor of eclectic housewares, Gracious Home has an item for everyone: The interior decorator can find everything from basic light bulbs and decorative hardware to lavish linens, duvets and chandeliers. Browsing our L'Epicerie collection of gourmet goods, top-of-the-line espresso machines or high-end cookware, the gastronome is sure to find a new kitchen delight. Animal-lovers can bring their pets into the store as they revel in adorable products from our new Gracious Paws department, while the home décor shopper can create custom lampshades, stationery and paint.
But don’t take our word for it. Our products have been featured as favorites in countless magazines including recent features in Martha Stewart Living, InStyle and Country Living. With the launch of our e-commerce site, you no longer have to trek to one of our stores to view our exceptional array of products from top-notch brands.
