A Tale of Two Tiffanys
Tiffany & Co. gives an extreme makeover to two of its most important hallmarks
With its eternally elegant designs, Tiffany & Co. is nothing short of an American legend, with its robin’s-egg blue boxes setting hearts aflutter for decades.
The Landmark building that houses the Tiffany & Co. NYC storefront has undergone its first major renovation since its inauguration in 1940, driven by architect Peter Marino.
The three-year-long process prioritized preserving the building’s original structure and signature elements, including the limestone facade and the Atlas statue and clock. The interiors, meanwhile, were entirely reimagined. The redesigned space received a glass-wrapped three-story addition, including a dedicated museum and a private shopping penthouse. At the heart is a magnificent curvilinear staircase, framed with transparent balustrades and angled infinity mirrors inspired by the organic forms of Tiffany designer Elsa Peretti.
