West Elm furnishes New York mayor’s residence

New York — Where does New York City’s first family shop for furniture? West Elm, it turns out.

The Williams-Sonoma brand worked with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and his family to refurnish Gracie Mansion, the New York Post reports. The retailer donated $65,000 worth of furniture to the Gracie Conservancy, which maintains the mansion.

De Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, is quoted in a release from the mayor’s press office as saying, “With assistance from West Elm, we are honoring and preserving one of the nation’s great historic residences, while turning Gracie into a modern living space that fits our family. We’ve moved to a new borough, but we brought some Brooklyn flavor with us.”
