The new beauty floor is the latest step in the New York flagship’s Grand Renovation. Saks redefined the department store concept with the revolutionary migration of Beauty from the main floor to the second floor. The Saks Store Planning and Design team, in collaboration with Gensler, spearheaded the design focusing on opening up the space, creating broad sightlines across the floor and modernizing traditional finishes that complement the brand’s heritage. The team used custom agglomerate white stone flooring from Italy throughout and restored original windows facing Fifth Avenue, 49th Street, and 50th Street, allowing natural light to the floor and north and south facing views of the city.

Tiffany & Co. Unveils Newly Renovated Chicago’s Michigan Avenue Flag Ship Store

Carlos Rolón/Dzine Unveiled New Artwork in Celebration of Newly Renovated Store at EXPO CHICAGO, Thursday, September 17, 2015

Tiffany & Co. unveiled its newly designed store at 730 North Michigan Avenue in celebration of its upcoming 50th anniversary in Chicago. Visitors will now enter a modern and luxurious environment sparkling with the diamonds for which Tiffany has been known for more than 175 years.

The corner of Michigan Avenue and Superior Street, where the Tiffany store resides, is at the heart of Chicago’s famous shopping boulevard,” said Tiffany vice president Cathy Elward. “The major redesign we’ve made to our store reinforces the importance of our commitment to the Chicago market, as well as our wish to better serve current and prospective clients and tourists.”

Exquisite stones are arrayed in engagement rings—the ultimate symbols of true love—and jewels with rare colored diamonds, including Tiffany Yellow Diamonds. Beauty shines too in the bejeweled masterpieces of Jean Schlumberger, sculptural jewelry of Elsa Peretti and the colorful collections of Paloma Picasso—Tiffany’s exclusive designers. Customers will also discover new interpretations of Tiffany Victoria™, Tiffany Bow and Tiffany Infinity—signature collections reimagined by design director Francesca Amfitheatrof to be worn alone or in dazzling multiples.s101914a.tif

The two-story granite façade is inspired by the Fifth Avenue flagship and has been reinvigorated with awnings in the company’s signature Tiffany Blue. Now a Tiffany icon, the store’s original Atlas clock—a nine-foot figure of the mythic Greek god holding a clock overhead—presides above the entrance, welcoming all who enter. The approximately 10,100-square-foot store, an increase of 1,400 square feet, features a dedicated Tiffany Watch Salon—the first of its kind in the Americas—as well as an outstanding five private sales salons. A Tiffany & Co. gold watch given to U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1945, which inspired the recently introduced Tiffany CT60 watch, will be on display for a limited time through October 13.
