The St. Regis New York will launch a unique partnership with Thornwillow Press, the limited edition publisher, bespoke stationer, and custom bookbinder.
This fall, The St. Regis New York, which is located at 2 East 55th Street at Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, will unveil an "invisible store" which will offer guests a one of a kind retail experience befitting of the Beaux Arts beauty. "Thornwillow at The St. Regis" will showcase the hotel's elegant interiors while seamlessly merging an expertly curated collection of hand-crafted leather books, Thornwillow publications, art, library accessories, fine stationery, and other curiosities personally selected by Thornwillow's founder and arbiter of style, Luke Ives Pontifell. It is a fitting partnership as The St. Regis brand of hotels is known for its unique luxury, customized service and refined elegance.
Nestled within the walls of the hotel, Thornwillow at The St. Regis will be located in a quiet oasis on the ground floor. This unexpected boutique will be the city's best kept secret and will be a welcome change from the traditional shopping experience. Designed with comfortable reading chairs, writing desks and antique paneled cases, visitors will be drawn in by the warm and intimate atmosphere. Guests will be attended to by the Thornwillow Librarian and encouraged to linger, enjoy a cup of tea, an espresso or fine whiskey while surrounded by a unique selection of beautifully designed, one of kind items, all handmade in Thornwillow's artisanal studios. Thornwillow at The St. Regis will also feature a Stationery Bar were guests will be able to mix and match Thornwillow note cards, journals and other items, selecting various motifs and colors, creating a bespoke set of stationery. Thornwillow products retailed exclusively for The St. Regis New York can be seen online.
