World's oldest candle company, Cire Trudon, opens first shop outside of Paris in New York's Bond Street
Last Friday, Cire Trudon, the oldest candle company in the world, opened its very first shop outside its native Paris in New York’s Nolita neighborhood at 54 Bond Street at Bowery. This is the first boutique to open since the Paris shop, located in the 6th arrondissement at 78 rue de Seine, opened in 1884.
The inspiration for the shop design is the Galerie des Glaces at Versailles. Ramdane Touhami, Owner and Creative Director, has taken a liberal interpretation of the French palace, playing with the classical mirrors and stucco to create an old stylish feel of a Parisian store in the 800 sq ft space. In Cire Trudon fashion of always working with the best craftsman all around the world, the mirrors are handmade and aged following a XVII century method in Paris, the stucco is designed by a celebrated French company who works for all the French museums, and the main furniture was handmade in Pennsylvania by an Amish carpenter. Like the Paris store, you will find a selection of antiques and news pieces dedicated to candles – chandeliers, candlesticks, candelabras, wick knifes, and snuffers – which will all be for sale.
