Find inspiration at home this holiday season, with new and imaginative table arrangements that dazzle!
Join acclaimed French interior designer and decorative arts historian, Florence de
Dampierre, as she introduces three Art
de la table masters: Baccarat, Bernardaud,
and Christofle. Each will
present innovative and surprising settings complete with elegant glassware,
porcelain, and silver flatware. All three houses value inspiration, and are leaders
in the field of design, giving a fresh aesthetic to classic tablewares.
Exchange ideas with the artists in an intimate atmosphere around a
glass of champagne. The evening will conclude with a signing of Florence de Dampierre's
new book, French
Chic, the Art of Decorating Houses (Rizzoli).
