Williams-Sonoma has turned its Columbus Circle store into Williams-Sonoma Home just in time for hibernation season. The store is one of only three on this coast, but the furniture might seem familiar: "You won't find any earth-shattering flights of fancy here. It's all an extra tasteful (perhaps to a fault?) step up from sibling store Pottery Barn, but there are plenty of solid investment pieces to anchor a home, kind of the way a kitchen might be anchored by a good set of All-Clad cookware and Kitchen Aid mixer."
