Chic Spring Dinnerware from Raynaud

Although snow is still falling in much of the country, in L.A. the rains have stopped and the sun is shining brightly.  We’ve spent the last two weeks planting  in our yard and lots of birds have kept us company.  The trees in our neighborhood are stripped of leaves, but there is something very moving about seeing the sculptural shapes of trees during winter.

Which got us to thinking … usually, spring dinnerware is full of color and flowers, but what if we could find something that’s more timeless?  Something that would work all year long?

Happily, Raynaud has two new lines of dinnerware that fit the bill.

The Ombrages Limoges dinnerware collection is a stylish, modern take on a classic floral pattern. From the French ombrages, meaning “shadows”, the playful design evokes the movement of light and shadows in a summer garden. Exquisitely crafted by French artisans following age-old techniques, every piece in the collection is slightly different, lending the entire setting a custom look.  The black, platinum, and yellow colors remind us of Kelly Wearstler’s designs.

And if you like birds, the Bird Limoges dinnerware collection is whimsical, yet refined. It’s available in a neutral palette of grey, taupe, and celadon, so it would work well if you lean toward antiques and weathered pieces.

A Sneak Peek At Spring: Exquisite Flowers From Raynaud

Springtime is still a long time away, but we have a wonderful pick-me-up for you. If you’re dreaming of April flowers, take a look at these bright, beautiful new plates, mugs and trays from Raynaud.

Fleur Exquise is French for “exquisite flower” and we think they are very appropriately named! Available in four richly colored flowers, the designs remind us of French Impressionist paintings. They’re sure to banish your winter blues.

Go grab a cup of coffee and spend a few minutes with some gorgeous flowers. We’ll wait for you.
