Based in Ribeauvillé, a picturesque little town in the Alsace region of France, Beauvillé Designs creates stunning household linens and tableware inspired by centuries-old printing traditions. Recognized by the French government as a national textile industry leader, Beauvillé produces its wares using both old and contemporary techniques — including hand-painting, screen-printing, and color-enhancing stain treatments. The company annually releases two collections featuring napkins, trays, and place mats as well as table cloths, runners, cushions, and other linens made of the highest-quality fabrics. Patterns range from regal to whimsical — think over-the-top paisley and baroque designs; tablecloths inspired by 1930s Parisian fashion, nature, or the French countryside; and fabric wall calendars adorned with scenes of charming French villagers, sweet-faced dogs and puppies, or pensive donkeys.
Drawing on over 200 years of French tradition, Beauvillé screen-prints cotton household linens with vibrant floral, baroque and geometric designs. Take a gander at the elegant Alhambra runners, or opt for the Caucase napkins; the latter sports a simple-yet-memorable dandelion image that looks like it could have sprung from the pen of Modernist illustrator Charley Harper. Also on offer are covetable placemats, tea towels and tablecloths.
Marie Antionette herself would envy this luxurious selection of fine home accoutrements. And we have them for you. First, drape your table with Beauville’s bold and tasteful cloths, like the floral Pivoines. Next, chill your champagne in Mauviel’s impeccable copper-and-bronze ice bucket. Then dine amid the scent of Seda France’s Belgian Marigold candle. Afterward, bed down on Coleur Nature’s gorgeously printed botanical sheets that have the lush look of the French countryside.
Warm colors, rich textures, and plenty of layering—these are the defining themes of not just your personal fall wardrobe, but also your table’s. We’ve got a selection to enhance anything from a small family dinner to a big party, from Beauville Designs, Anichini, Dransfield & Ross, and more. The art is in the mix: start with one of Beauville Designs’ luxurious tablecloths in a tonal floral print, and over that, set down placemats, like Kim Seybert’s round ones with intricate beading detail. Rethink the little details: instead of folding napkins, put them in Dransfield & Ross’s whimsical cracked-glass napkin rings. And why not stock up on enough serving pieces to take you well past fall.
Let your home reflect the culture, art, and beauty of the Land of the Rising Sun with this swath of items from or inspired by Japan. Make like a five-star chef with Tan Ren’s forged-steel knives, or get the perfect sushi roll started with Sid Wainer's rice, vinegar, and white soy sauce. (Serve the finished pieces on L'Objet’s red-and-black lacquer trays for optimum effect.) Finally, store your sake in Baker's exquisite leather-topped Dansu bar cabinet; its narrow silhouette is perfect for a tight space, while its maple and walnut exterior will only improve with age.
