Cartier is proud to open the doors to its latest boutique situated in The Gardens Mall, an immersive space into the world of Cartier that also serves as the first in Malaysia to feature Cartier’s latest interior design direction that reflects local elements for heightened client experience.
Called ‘The Lush Garden’ the boutique cleverly melds Malaysian iconography with Cartier signatures for space that is easily accessible via the mall’s Riverview entrance, catching the eye with a stunning golden façade that extends well beyond the entrance.
Inside, 409 square metres of glittering space is home to Cartier’s full line of offerings from jewellery and watches to leather goods, stationary and fragrances. They are strategically divided into semi-private alcoves that provide privacy to discerning clients.

Cartier’s ‘The Lush Garden’
The sprawling space begins in the Grand Foyer where a delicate chandelier made up of falling leaves becomes the heart of the boutique. Peeking out from behind it is a majestic floor-to-ceiling Mosaic wall made up of 20,000 pieces of hand-cut elements. The mosaic took 3 artisans over 5 months to complete and was created using ancestral stone marquetry techniques including hours of meticulous stone cutting and intricate inlaying.
The colourful mosaic depicts two panthers, the Maison’s emblem, surrounded by magnificent foliage in tribute to Malaysia’s vibrant tropical landscape. The graceful creatures rest at the top of a monumental staircase where they oversee the daily affairs of the boutique.
Guests making their way to the left of the Grand Foyer will encounter a sense of masculine elegance subtly invoked by the use of wood panelling. This is carefully balanced out by the lightness of the High-End Area, which includes a semi-private alcove to offer privacy to clients. The walls of both areas are embellished with leafy light fixtures in line with the overall theme of nature. The boutique also houses a comfortable VIP Lounge that features local touches such as rattan furniture.
Across the boutique, guests may indulge in the romantic surprises awaiting them in the Bridal Area that was thoughtfully decorated with a backdrop highlighting Malaysia’s national flower, the red Bunga Raya. The Care Service Area, which was designed to simulate the serene setting of a nature retreat, may be found a few steps away tucked into a relaxing corner fitted with plush furniture.
The continuous theme of nature is seamlessly represented throughout the boutique exemplified by the abstract motifs on the pillars. The motifs, inspired by oil palm trees, were expertly hand-carved from white plaster by local artists.
“The Lush Garden is a true representation of the Maison’s dedication to embracing the local heritage in each city where it is anchored. The new boutique marries the richness of Cartier’s DNA with Malaysia’s unique flora and fauna. Every corner is exquisitely decorated with local touches to create a welcoming, cosy and exceptional client journey,” says Anne Yitzhakov, Managing Director, Cartier Singapore and Malaysia.
The boutique is located at G-241 Ground Floor, Mid Valley City, Lingkaran Syed Putra, 59200 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. For more information, call +603 2303 5088 or log on to the official Cartier website here.
