The raucously ornate furnishings of the Baroque Era are a sight to behold. Some of my favorite museum exhibitions are vignettes featuring furniture from this time.
When I come across products that resonate with me, even ones by manufactures today that reflect the style, I like to highlight them. I’ll share two of my favorite diary entries featuring them. First up is Dining with History that includes products by Raynaud Limoges, Fromental and Bernardaud—each of these companies well versed in historic design on par with the quality that would have been produced during the Baroque Era. This post includes Bernardaud’s The Historic Table” collection that springs from the Ancienne Manufacture Royale (AMR) program founded by Louis XVI in 1774.
In We’ll Never be Royals, I dish about having a fictive dinner with Louis XV on his porcelain pattern from Bernardaud’s AMR collection. When I see products that have such profound echoes of history behind them, I just can’t help but go on an exploration with them. Also included in this post is Elysee, the pattern Louise Philippe, the last king of France, ordered for his personal use in the Tuileries.
