Sisley set to open first New York City boutique

Sisley Paris New York City Boutique to open in December.

The 760-square-foot space will mark the launch of a new store design for Sisley, which draws influences from its heritage as a family owned company. The boutique will also offer Sisley’s renowned beauty treatments within its spa room along with a private make- up area that can be reserved for special occasion make-up needs.

Founded by Hubert d’Ornano in 1976, Sisley remains owned by the family to this day. Christine d’Ornano, Sisley’s International Vice President and daughter of Hubert d’Ornano, hand-selected a number of the decor items. Her goal was to create the look of an intimate but modern apartment drawing influences from Sisley’s Parisian roots while including elements from its downtown New York location.

“We wanted the boutique to feel warm and inviting,” said d’Ornano. “Less like a retail space and more like an apartment where you can come and discuss your skin’s needs, have a facial or have your make up done before a party. A Sisley home in downtown New York.”

“This new boutique design will blend seamlessly into the neighborhood and we are sure it will become a destination for customers seeking luxurious, effective skincare and make-up products and pampering facial and make-up services,” added Jim Maki, Sisley’s U.S. Executive Vice President.

The layout will feature a sitting lounge area and library to encourage customers to spend time relaxing while discovering Sisley’s products. Sisley’s founder will curate the library with art and cultural books that inspire her family in the creation of products.

The lively botanical print wallpaper was designed by Marthe Armitage. Based in the UK, she is considered one of the best hand-made wallpaper designers in the world. For decades she has hand drawn her stunning prints and continues to create this way even now into her eighties.

The chandelier was selected from local artist’s Lindsay Adelman’s made-to-order collections based out of Brooklyn.

Boutique services will include a spa cabine room, a separate make-up application area, and at-home facial and make-up application services, announced the brand.

The spa cabine room can be pre booked for facials and is the only location in downtown New York City to experience a full Sisley facial. The comprehensive menu offers facial options for every skin care need from radiance-enhancing facials to intense anti-aging results. Packages will be available for customers who want a regular boost of indulgent facial treatments. Full make-up applications are complimentary with all facial treatments.

The separate make-up application area is ideal for women who prefer privacy while having makeup applied or who want make up advice in a quiet environment.
