Renowned French candlemaker — and the world’s oldest — Cire Trudon is setting up shop in New York City with a brand new boutique. Its first in the United States, Cire Trudon’s new Big Apple spot supplements its candles with room fragrances, scented matches and more — all in a gorgeous Nolita storefront. Said the brand’s executive director, Julien Pruvost:
We wanted to bring some Paris to Nolita with a mix of classical and contemporary design that would work well for 400 sq-ft. I collaborated with the Paris-based architect Fabrizio Casiraghi, who understands the design sensibility of intimate spaces, French heritage and complimentary lighting techniques.
Casiraghi’s distinctly French space — filled with mirrors and enameled surfaces a la a French chateaux or palace — is juxtaposed with neon lighting, antique Japanese vases, Art Deco lamps, and Cire Trudon’s signature burgundy accent hue throughout and is open now at 248 Elizabeth Street.
