10 Riveting Retail Spaces

Let’s talk shop. It’s that time of year again, so get into the giving spirit with 10 riveting retail spaces.

1. NOKE Architects Creates a Luxe and Immersive Experience for Warsaw Jewelry Shop KOPI

4. Pierre Yovanovitch’s New Design for the Villa Noailles Boutique Dares to be Bold

Yovanovitch shaped the interior of the Villa’s retail space, mixing bright colors and geometric motifs with a selection of contemporary and vintage design objects chosen in collaboration with Graziella Semerciyan gallery. Photography by Luc Bertrand.

5. Beautysaur Organics in Hong Kong by Bean Buro

Although its logo is Mesozoic, the budding skincare company’s clientele is definitively millennial, so the store’s aesthetic is tinted slightly Memphis, with rounded profiles, terrazzo surfaces, and saturated pastels. Photography courtesy of Bean Buro.

6. Peter Marino Melds Understated and Chromatic at Maison Louis Vuitton New Bond Street 

The Campana brothers’ ceiling-hung Cocoon chairs, from LV’s Objets Nomades collection, hang in the double-height atrium carved out of the second floor. Photography by Manolo Yllera.

The New York debut of the Dallas-based department store channels the eclectic fashion it offers with such trompe l’oeils as a “fractured” glass-block storefront and a rocklike display of carved and painted high-density foam. Photography by Michael Moran/Otto. 

9. Collaboration Between Pamela Shamshiri and Sonia Boyajian Births Chic Jewelry Store

Residential touches make the retail space feel comfortable. Photography by Stephen Busken.

10. DS Studio Reinvents the Jewelry Store Experience for Mejuri in San Francisco
