Passers-by will be drawn into the store through a dramatic storefront that features an iconic houndstooth pattern. It was cleverly created by artisans who layered glass to create a striking 3-dimensional appearance. It's lit with more than 2,000 LED lights to create an impactful entrance. Limestone, polished nickel, and zebra-wood are other premium finishes used throughout the new store.
