Tiffany & Co. unveils its first street-front facing duplex store in Singapore, at ION Orchard, one of the city’s premier shopping destinations for luxury brands. Spanning over 5,000 square feet, the boutique provides customers with a comfortable shopping experience.
“This spacious duplex store at ION Orchard is the perfect home for Tiffany’s legendary collections and reinforces the commitment we’ve made to increase our presence in Singapore”, said Marc Jacheet, Group Vice President of Tiffany & Co. Asia Pacific. “It is designed with the warmth, elegance and superior service that have distinguished Tiffany & Co. for the past 179 years.”
Tiffany architects and interior designers utilised elements of the New York flagship store to create a welcoming environment. The two-story façade is lit with Tiffany Blue and carved with a wheatleaf pattern similar to that which frames the entrance of Tiffany’s Fifth Avenue flagship store.
Located on the lower level, the fashion jewelry salon welcomes visitors to an environment that reinforces the brand’s legendary New York energy and style. White marble and Tiffany Blue amazonite stone borders and walls accented with leather panels trimmed in polished stainless steel surround such iconic collections as Tiffany T, Tiffany Atlas®, Return to Tiffany®, Tiffany 1837™ and the collections of exclusive Tiffany designers Elsa Peretti and Paloma Picasso.
The salon’s grand stairway, flanked by Tiffany Blue drapes and mirror panels, is the focal point of an exhibition and private viewing space with cream velvet walls and custom furnishings. Sliding glass doors open to the second level and the fine jewellery salon appointed with custom painted glass magnolia walls. The magnolia, a favourite motif of Louis Comfort Tiffany and often seen in his stained glass works of art, inspires a hand-leafed chandelier designed by New York-based artist, Michelle Oka Doner.
Love and romance sparkle in the bridal salon, with the world’s most coveted diamond engagement rings showcased amid custom furnishings and interpretations of the iconic magnolia motif. Included in the collection is the Tiffany® Setting, which has enjoyed universal popularity since its 1886 introduction. Customers may further explore the brilliant rings in the comfort of private salons with bold, black lacquer and white gold panels hand painted with a wisteria pattern, a modern reference to the masterworks of Louis Comfort Tiffany.
In addition, individual galleries with images and archival creations enlighten customers on Tiffany’s great legacy. Among these images are Tiffany jewels and images of New York City, where Tiffany was founded in 1837. Together, these images and artifacts tell a visual story of Tiffany & Co. as New York’s first great jeweler, now open in ION Orchard with all the treasures of its honored heritage.
