The renovation and expansion of the Van Cleef & Arpels flagship on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue brings the space to 6,000 square feet, double the original size. Sun streams in through additional, larger windows and there’s a lighter color scheme compared with the dark wood of the previous incarnation.
There’s a new mezzanine with a library, VIP room and bridal area. The brand has also taken over the second floor, which previously housed workshops and offices, for events and lectures. A walnut table and light fixture made of 744 pieces of curved and beveled glass — the number of the store’s address — are the focal point of the room, which will be used to entertain and educate customers.
