Introducing Marie Daage plates

July 6, 2008

I had a crush several years ago on the creations of a Parisian designer, Marie Daage. Her precious hand-made porcelain dishes are delicately refine and unique.

Marie is an heiress of many generations’ porcelain painters. She seeks to incorporate life’s exuberant colors and joyful elaborate motives in her creations. Her patterns and colors are made to be mixed-matched as the subtle colors and motives are complementary of each other.

I decided with no hesitation to buy these plates to introduce the beauty of her designs to my American customers. These fine porcelain salad plates are manufactured in Limoges and then hand-painted. They are finished with a subtle golden edge. The delicate floral pattern is enhanced by the vibrant colors and the chocolate dinner plates underneath. That ensemble will give a unique French Touch to your table.

But be aware: no microwave or dishwasher for these exquisite dishes. It’s just a small sacrifice for all of you who, like me, have a passion for style and beauty.

Salad plates cost $35.00, dinner plates $40.00

Our traditionnal Basque espadrilles have arrived!

June 24, 2008

Popularized by Brigitte Bardot in Saint-Tropez in the 1960’s espadrilles are a definite French tradition. Handmade in the South West of France by Artiga, these casual sandals are composed of a flexible rubber sole stitched to a 100% cotton upper. The traditional Basque stripes pattern comes in different bright colors to match your favourite outfits.

 

Basque linens are part of the Basque heritage. The uniqueness of these linens comes from their 7 stripes representing the 7 provinces of the Basque Region: 3 French provinces and 4 Spanish ones. The palette of colors is inspired from the strong regional tones which associate thin and wide stripes, the genuine signature of Basque fabrics. The patterns designed nowadays are a variation of the old mante à boeufs which was meant to protect working cattle from insects.
