Adorning fans of Breakfast at Tiffany can rejoice as leading fit-out specialist, Portview, hands over Tiffany & Co.’s first ‘blue box’ cafe in Europe.
Located on the lower ground floor of Harrods, the pop-up café features a striking interior which mirrors that of the famous Blue Box Cafe in the Tiffany flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York City. It boasts unique design touches created exclusively by Portview for the luxury location.
Managing Director of Portview, Simon Campbell, said: “We have a great relationship with Tiffany & Co., which is fundamentally built on our shared passion for delivering unrivalled quality, craftmanship and experiences to clients.
“The Blue Box Café is a perfect example of how Tiffany continually sets new benchmarks in retail design by creating highly immersive environments that resonate with customers. It has married classic retail design with hospitality elements to produce a unique, experiential space that seamlessly blends the old with the new to create a new modern classic.”
The brand’s iconic shade of Tiffany Blue is infused throughout the interior and is complemented by a mirror silver leaf ceiling, creating the illusion of dining inside one of Tiffany’s famed Blue Boxes.
Meanwhile, the Blue Box Café pays homage to Tiffany’s heritage of craftsmanship and its greatest source of inspiration – nature itself – with striking amazonite stone features, oak parquet flooring and hand-painted flora and fauna motifs.
Careful consideration was also given to the ambient lighting scheme, with linear light strips placed behind the plush banquet seating and staircase handrail to delicately illuminate the space.
Playful touches and elegant finishes – such as the decadent marble bar top and fabric wall panelling – are quintessential to the core of the Tiffany brand, which has celebrated everyday luxury for over 180 years.
Guests can expect a memorable experience, surrounded by Tiffany jewels while enjoying an exclusive menu made with the highest quality, locally sourced ingredients.
All dishes are served on the Tiffany & Co.’ Color Block’ bone china, as part of a beautiful Tiffany tablescape.
Tiffany’s Home & Accessories collection and elevated Everyday Objects is also available for purchase at Harrods, for those who want to bring a little bit of the Breakfast – lunch or dinner – at Tiffany’s dining experience home with them.
