Happy 150th!

Happy 150th!

Since we’ve spent the last two days showing our new Spring 2014 collections at Tabletop in New York, it’s only fitting that we honor an iconic French brand in the art of living which is turning 150 this year.  To celebrate this benchmark anniversary, Bernardaud commissioned a series of limited-edition plates designed by contemporary artists, photographers and filmmakers like Jeff Koons, David Lynch and Sophie Calle.

While porcelain from Limoges doesn’t necessarily evoke modern living, these plates are definitely not your grandmother’s china.  The artists were given free reign and the plates were their canvas.  And we have to admit, some are lovely in their design and others are, to be honest, a bit strange.

The new collections were launched in May at a pop up store in Chelsea but they’re now available at the company’s flagship stores and at luxury retailers.  If you’re in the market for conversation pieces at the dinner table, better shop soon – a little bird told us they’re selling like hot cakes plates.

    Fun to see something new emerge from something traditional. I think the Jeff Koons is my favorite. Hope Tabletop was a great event for you. Happy Weekend! XO

    I saw the collection when they debuted it at Maison last January. It’s a tour de force collaboration between modern masters and Bernardaud. And you’re right, they range from fabulous to off putting, but always thought provoking!
