Say “18th century French mansion” and Rococo-rich interiors and gilded ornamentation will most likely jump to mind. But the approach that Parisian jeweller Chaumet took when it interpreted that idea for its newly opened store at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands (#01-57) is a little less OTT, and a lot more elegant and still Instagram-worthy.
Bathed in warm light, the space is anchored by sleek wood panelling crafted from American walnut. While the ear of wheat motif, a central theme of the maison — one of the earliest designs with the element was a tiara from 1811 created for Empress Marie-Louise, featuring nine diamond-ripe ears of wheat — appear as reliefs of exterior windows and panelings. Here, we list the different decor touches that make this store one of the most beautiful jewellery boutiques in town.
