Your Tea, Madam.
Tea and champagne at The Connaught heralded our return to London. In the busiest week of the London season it was the perfect occasion and location for our friends and clients to drop in. The glamorous pink space was enlivened with our most whimsical French faïence designs - the La Savane safari animals and Les Bleuets floral on tea plates. We filled our hand sponged Osier cache pots with armfuls of glorious flowers by famed London florist Rob van Helden, whom also created fragrant posies for guests to take home.

Mix It Up: The Key to French Raffinement
The magic of French refinement is that it all feels gloriously unstudied. A bit thrown together, mixed and unmatched, makes for an authentic cool French girl table. Don't be afraid to change up your linen, add in granny's silver, pop flowers and potted plants in unusual vessels. There are no rules!
Picardie is entirely hand made and painted by master craftsmen in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. This unique floral design is emblematic of the Picardie region of France, whose villages bloom in dazzling colour at this time of year. The design and plate shape is a Z.d.G. exclusive.
Picardie in Paris
The streets of Paris are heady with the scent of the tilleuls that line the grand boulevards this time of year. The florists are teeming with flowers in season. There is an air of anticipation as le grand départ for the summer beckons. Such is the setting for a beautiful floral table, featuring the Picardie collection.
The Field Flower Fit For A Queen
The favourite flower of Queen Marie-Antoinette of France, the cornflower (les bleuets in French) is a traditional and much loved motif in French ceramics. Les Bleuets makes a pretty and refined addition to any table.
The Arts of Fire
The faïence of Moustiers is rooted in the passion of the sun and the running water. The landscape of Provence is rich with veins of clay and vast forests - natural elements essential to the arts of fire.
The history of our ateliers is born from the shared passion of their founders, for beautiful furniture and decorative objects of the Provençal tradition.
All the master artisans with whom we work share the same values of heritage, family and the preservation of ancient decorative arts.
