Pierre Frey and Bernardaud Collaborate on a Sumptuous Collection of Tableware
The timeless pieces celebrate the bicentennial anniversary of legendary textile maker Braquenié
In celebration of the bicentennial of legendary textile maker Braquenié, Pierre Frey and Bernardaud are collaborating on a special collection of tableware that captures the spirit of the classic French fabrics. The assortment finds inspiration in two timeless prints, Le Grand Corail and La Ménagerie.
From these 19th-century patterns come unexpected pairings of overblown flowers, wild animals painted in grisaille, delicate plants in an arabesque arrangement, and radiating striped borders. Together, they feel entirely fresh while reflecting Braquenié’s deeply rooted traditions and unique style.
