The home floor at Tiffany & Co. has undergone an extreme makeover, emerging bigger, brighter, and superfabulous. Its five salons—housing silver hollowware, formal china, crystal, casual china and gifts, and, of course, the bridal registry—now share more than 6,000 square feet. Anyone who remembers the former home of the home collection will be shocked: The floor has breathtaking natural light (who knew there were so many windows?) and, because of subtle variations in wallpaper and furniture within each salon, the feel of a private home—one that belongs to somebody very rich with very good taste.
Some pieces are ageless classics; others, like a swoon-inducing sterling-silver Art Deco tea set with wooden handles and jade accents ($3,200 for tray, $9,500 for teapot), are brand-new but were inspired by items in Tiffany’s archives. Prices start at around $75 for a sterling-silver bamboo-style straw and increase precipitously, to about $4,000 for a classic menorah and $24,000 for a 30-by-20-inch handcrafted sterling-silver chrysanthemum-pattern tray. Holly Golightly would approve. (727 Fifth Avenue, at 57th Street; 212-755-8000.)
