Delphinium Home was opened in 1996 by two musical theatre performers who wanted to create their own unique business. They saw a need in the city for a retail store that sold unique cards, gifts and home design wares and so they opened up shop in Hell’s Kitchen in midtown Manhattan. They have since expanded to a large home accessories store on 9th Avenue in Manhattan, which has become a staple for locals and tourists. It’s a great spot to pick up some quirky and unique home gifts.
