The Rotunda at Neiman Marcus - San Francisco, underneath a stunning glass dome constructed of more than 2500 pieces of coloured glass. The room curves around a central atrium four stories above the entrance.

The Glass Dome
The ship was the official seal of the city of Paris store, built in 1909. The Latin inscription translates “It floats, but doesn’t sink”.
In 1981 the 2.600 pieces which comprised the city of Paris dome were sent to Massachusetts for restoration. In 1982 the dome was reinstalled by Nieman Marcus as the focal point of its Rotunda restaurant, only 100 feet from its original location.

The Dome, and its grandeur has become a trademark for Neiman Marcus in San Francisco, and is considered part of the store’s collection of fine art.
