While not many luxury brands can celebrate a storied history spanning 250 years, Baccarat has withstood the test of time. From its inception in 1754, this luxury crystal manufacturer was commissioned by King Louis XV of France to be the official crystal for royalty. Though monarchy and emperors were defeated the brand has survived with its timeless elegance in stemware, chandeliers, and now hotels and residences.
Synonomous with royalty, wealth, and luxury, the Baccarat residences are amongst the most expensive condos in Manhattan, starting at $5 million to $60 million and for those who just want to dabble in the lap of luxury, the sleek hotel will be outfitted with Baccarat crystal and amenities.
As the Asian market has played a huge role in the success and longevity of the brand, Yue Magazine hosted this legendary milestone anniversary at the Baccarat Hotel & Residences offices this week that is built out with the same stunning finishes, materials, and of course chandeliers of what you would find in the breathtaking apartments. A who’s who in the Asian community was on hand to celebrate the regalia.
