This New Book Spotlights Tiffany’s Iconic Flagship and History


Tiffany & Co.’s Fifth Avenue store has become a Manhattan icon—a destination for tourists and beloved by locals, too. After an extensive four-year renovation, the flagship reopened last spring to reveal not just a remodeled store but an entirely new chapter in the brand’s history. And now a 272-page book has been dedicated to it: Tiffany & Co.: The Landmark.

Featuring over 150 pictures, the book explores Tiffany’s centuries-old legacy of design, craftsmanship, and innovation that continues at the New York flagship, dubbed the Landmark upon its reopening. Transformed by architect Peter Marino, the Landmark is now adorned with artworks by celebrated artists and boasts a brand-new three-story exhibition and event area, created by Shohei Shigematsu from OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture).

The book covers various facets that have brought Tiffany’s wonders to life, from the company founder’s visionary retail concept to the discovery of precious gemstones to Tiffany hallmarks such as the Blue Box and Blue Books to its ongoing commitment to wonderful client experiences.

There’s plenty about the redesigned Landmark, but the book also gives space to the store’s past iteration, including its stained-glass lamps and memorable window displays and the unprecedented jewelry designs and silver masterpieces introduced there.

A tribute to the Tiffany flagship and everything it represents, the book celebrates the skilled artisans who contributed to the jeweler’s heritage in the past as well as those who are carrying it into the future.

Tiffany & Co.: The Landmark, which is published by Assouline and comes in a luxury slipcase, is priced at $175.
