Envisioned in 2010 by Celeste Magazine editor Vanesa Fernández and her husband artist Aldo Chaparro this amazing gallery lives in a very chic 1940s house restored by Productora Architects.  The result is a truly amazing job – specifically the ingenious placement of the cement tiles and the design of a modernist Vienna coffee shop.

The house is located in the Anzures neighborhood of Mexico City, a lovely area where every street is named after a literary author.

The House has three sections:
First is the Concept store/gallery, were one can find all sort of interesting items. They include paintings, functional and nonfunctional objects, rare fossils, collectible fashion, jewelry and more.  Products from around the globe, and others ether designed by Aldo and Vanessa or the top designers in Mexico.  Celeste House really shows breadth of design contained in this world-class metropolis.

Continuing on one finds a homeopathic apothecary specialized in phytotherapy treatments.  Here, personalized formulas are created in a very Victorian way for each customer.

The third, and most delicious part, is the champagne tea room.  While Viennese in design, they serve the classic English ritual; complete with tiered plates of pastries, scones and small sandwiches.  They also offer a rich Champagne menu as well as an extraordinary selection of teas.   Top this off with Cantonese-style  Dim Sum, and during the late evening, Celeste transforms to a destination for the  trendy and happening.
