In the 8th arrondissement in Paris near the elegant Musee Nissim de Camondo, there’s a small shop devoted to hand-embroidered linens, like the ones the fashionable Camondos would have enjoyed during their heyday. And even though the space is small, you’ll quickly see why the Palais de l’Elysee (the official residence of the President of France), the Ritz Paris, and designer Jacques Garcia all turn to Celine Perrin-Davy’s Renaissance Paris for their custom embroidered linens.
Ms. Perrin-Davy’s designs are a study in sophistication: examine each piece carefully, and you’ll see a multitude of techniques employed, each used to bring out the artistry in each collection.
To start, they have more than thirty hemstitch techniques to choose from.
To that, you can add any design you’d like. For example, Jungle brings a tropical rain forest alive; this style is particularly popular aboard private yachts.
If you prefer something more colorful, choose from a variety of colorful backgrounds in a range of fabrics including Egyptian cotton percale, cotton voile, linen, silk, and organdy. Here’s Butterflies in white and aqua:
For something more traditional, Elegance sports the points de perle three-dimensional technique.
At Gracious Style, we’ve selected a range of Renaissance Paris designs, all of which are hand-embroidered to order and available in 4-6 weeks. But if your heart is set on a truly bespoke piece, we’ll work with Ms. Perrin-Davy to create a piece just for you.
For example, here’s a collection she designed around Alberto Pinto’s Champignons dinnerware:
