Irish crystal manufacturer Waterford, owned by luxury goods group WWRD Holdings Ltd, opens its first stand-alone boutique in Boston
Waterford Crystal is expanding its reach in the United States with a new boutique in Boston. Previously sold only at Boston department stores, the classic brand’s new storefront located on the second floor of 127-129 Newbury Street, offers more of an opportunity to browse their luxury collections. “As a contemporary brand steeped in classic heritage, we are excited to call Boston our first home in 20 years and what better place than the renowned Newbury Street. We look forward to providing another house of luxury for Bostonians to shop in for all occasions.” remarked Pierre de Villemejane, CEO of Waterford Crystal.
The brand Waterford Crystal today maintains very strong links with its illustrious predecessors. There is the same dedication to purity of color, design inspiration and highest quality levels: core values carried over and maintained from the company’s earliest beginnings. The crystal manufacturer’s products include: Stemware and Barware , Fine China & Flatware , Vases , Bowls & Centerpieces , Collectibles , Lighting , Chandeliers , Wedding and Anniversary Gifts , Paperweights , and Holiday Ornaments and Gifts .
Waterford Crystal new flagship store will be a stand-alone location on Newbury Street and feature exclusive Boston pieces that will commemorate the store opening. These pieces will include an engraved Waterford Statehouse Oval Vase of the Massachusetts State House and a depiction of the Swan Boats in Boston Commons in the Waterford Public Garden Oval Bowl.
The Waterford store in Boston will specialize in high-end gift ware and home decor, including barware, glassware, serving pieces, and lighting. There are also wedding registries that are available on site. The grand opening of Waterford flagship store will take place on January 15, 2015. After that, the entire weekend ten percent of all proceeds will be donated to Artist for Humanity, a local charity that provides undeserved youth employment in the arts to give them a taste of independence.
