A Parisian Find: Hand-Embroidered Linens from Renaissance Paris

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.

    Thank you for sending the information about the exquisite Renaissance Paris placemats. My vote would go to Renaissance Paris for such an exquisite, beautiful product. I am eventually going to buy some of them. I would definitely use these for dinner parties. It would be such an honour to dine in a restaurant graced with such stunning , understated beauty. This could only be used for fine dining. Is there something in the works for an easy-care product?

    The Chilewich product I would never buy because the product really belongs outdoors on a picnic table. Unsuitable for fine dining in any restaurant. Would never grace my dinner table. I would turn my napkin into a placemat rather than eat on such a dreadful product.

    Thank you for your feedback! Renaissance Paris does do custom orders, so maybe they could do something with easy care specifications. As for Chilewich, sorry to hear you didn’t like it as much — some people really love it, but to each his own!
