About Gracie
Gracie was established in New York City in 1898 by Charles R. Gracie and continues to be a family-run business to this day. Mr. Gracie began his business in providing custom lamps, often using unusual accessories and vases and adapting them for use as lamps. His business expanded into Asian antiques in the 20's and 30's, focusing on collecting and dealing in antique Chinese and Japanese furniture, screens and porcelains. During the 1930's, a friend of Mr. Gracie's, a textile trader, returned from a visit to China with a roll of exquisite hand painted wallpapers that he had discovered in Beijing. Mr. Gracie was immediately enthusiastic, and felt that he had a market for this product. A relationship was established with the studio that produced the wallpaper and continued until the Chinese revolution in 1949, when the studio was relocated to Taiwan under new management. Decades later, the studio was returned to Mainland China, Gracie's studio in the orient have been managed by the same Chinese family for fifty years. Hand painted wallpapers are Gracie's signature product line. The New York studio consists of a twenty-person production department skilled in painting murals, producing custom lacquer furniture, and providing museum quality restoration. The showroom features all of the lines described above, as well as carefully selected Chinese and Japanese antique furniture and accessories.
