Photo Report: Inside The Cartier Mansion In New York City, Which Re-Opens To The Public Today
The Cartier manor re-opens today following 30 months of rebuilding work – it stays at 653 Fifth Avenue.
The manor at 653 Fifth Avenue (the south east corner at 52nd Street) has been shut to general society for more than two years, going through broad rebuilding work. The new manor has quadrupled in size, going from 8,600 square feet more than two stories to more than 44,000 square feet on four stories. Each piece of the inside work was specially designed, with more than 101 window medicines and in excess of 43 distinct textures and cowhides for the dividers, furniture, and curtains. Lead creator Thierry Despont specially crafted 35 distinctive furniture styles across the home as-retail space. There were 30 ceiling fixtures introduced under the course of Pierre Cartier himself. At its pinnacle, the work required 2,000 individual development laborers, with 500 on location, and more than 500 tons of steel were utilized in the project.

The Andy Warhol Watch Salon
The Warhol Salon is the place where you will discover the greater part of Cartier’s more popular timepieces.
Each salon in the new Cartier Mansion is named after one of the marque’s most well known benefactors. The Andy Warhol Watch Salon, for instance, is named as such in light of the fact that the craftsman was an amazing admirer of the Tank. ( P.S. – Did you realize that Ralph Lauren himself currently claims one of Warhol’s Tanks? )

At the focal point of the room, you’ll locate a shocking representation of Warhol wearing his Tank (which he famously never set) that was really taken by Warhol himself in his notorious Self-Portraits arrangement.
