GEARYS BEVERLY HILLS TO HOST “BACCARAT TAKEOVER” FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER


The iconic French luxury design house will present a more modern, innovative way of showing crystal deco, tableware and lighting, plus prestige pieces that have never been seen before on the West Coast

BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF. (September 25th, 2018) – Beginning September 28, 2018 through the month of October, GEARYS Beverly Hills will be home to the “Baccarat Takeover”—a modern presentation of deco, tableware and lighting from the French fine crystal manufacturer and designer, Baccarat. The takeover will also welcome a hand-picked selection of prestige pieces that have never been seen before on the West Coast, offering GEARYS clients a unique experience to immerse themselves in the brilliant world of Baccarat.

A high-end timepiece and tableware staple of the Beverly Hills community, GEARYS is the number one retailer of Baccarat on the West Coast. GEARYS and Baccarat have partnered with Editor in Chief of “Elle Décor” Whitney Robinson to curate a selection of featured pieces, titled “Editor’s Picks,” that will be highlighted throughout the month-long display.

To kick off the takeover, Baccarat has invited Robinson to emcee an exclusive preview gathering on September 27, 2018 for designers, influencers and dedicated GEARYS clientele. On the first floor, guests will be welcomed by a Step and Repeat made of broken crystal along with a modern take on Baccarat lighting, which will begin the journey to the second floor known as “Upstairs at GEARYS.” The opening night will also feature a signature cocktail by Remy Martin.

“As a family-run business, we value the relationships we’ve built, and we treasure the legacy we’ve developed,” said President and CEO of GEARYS Beverly Hills Thomas J. Blumenthal. “Throughout the years, many things have changed, but one thing that has remained constant is our belief in the importance of celebrating the moments that matter in life and we are always humbled to be a part of that celebration with our clients. Our partnership with Baccarat for this event is another example of meaningful relationships coming together to create tremendous moments that matter for our clients. We look forward to celebrating and showcasing these amazing prestige pieces with Baccarat.”

“GEARYS and Baccarat have enjoyed an amazing partnership together for almost 50 years,” said CEO and President of Baccarat, North America Jim Shreve. “It’s true, Baccarat is more than 265 years old, but we feel we are more relevant than ever. We state ‘Everyday Baccarat’ because we truly believe Baccarat should be used every day, because every day is all we have. The reality is we all work too hard not to enjoy beautiful things. At GEARYS, we will present a more modern, innovative way of showing deco, tableware and lighting, plus never-before-seen prestige pieces on the West Coast.  We are thrilled to present this at GEARYS.”
