Chelsea is a neighborhood that's not exactly hurting for home decor and furnishing stores: what can't you find for your apartment with a Bed Bath & Beyond, The Container Store, Williams-Sonoma, Home Depot, and West Elm clustered around Sixth and Seventh Avenues? We have no idea, but apparently Gracious Home sees a void and is ready to battle it out with the big boys. The furnishings chain is setting up shop in a 24,000-square-foot storefront in the recently-finished Chelsea Landmark building, a 38-story residential tower on Sixth Avenue between 25th and 26th Streets.

As you can see from the above photo, Gracious Home Chelsea won't be able to help you with all your decorating needs just yet. While work continues here, you can venture to their other locations on the Upper West and Upper East Sides for cookware sets and floral bed linens. Or, you know, head to the zillion other home goods stores nearby.
