That has all changed now. Tiffany & Co. opened the Blue Box Café on Friday on the fourth floor of the company’s Fifth Avenue location, according to The New York Times. The airy space is decorated in the company’s famous robin’s-egg blue and white color scheme on everything from the walls to the chairs and even the plates.

“The space is experimental and experiential – a window into the new Tiffany,” chief artistic officer Reed Krakoff said in a statement.
