What’s Hot: Pleasing Porcelain

The French porcelain manufacturer Haviland, which produces all of its products entirely in Limoges, has introduced its new tableware collection Stateside. A Ciel Ouvert, or Open Sky, comprises 15 delicate pieces designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, the interior designer behind some of Europe’s most iconic luxury hotel restorations. Pearl-hued and trimmed with gold, the handmade china is embellished with soaring swallows, symbolizing the collaborators’ vision of freedom. Among the pieces is the Open Sky teapot ($750), which features a lid topped with a pâte de verre crystal bird, made by employing a glass-paste casting technique unique to Haviland’s sister company, Daum—the first collaborative project of the two brands.

Haviland has been producing porcelain products in the city of Limoges since its founding in 1842, when American businessman David Haviland and his two sons relocated from New York to Limousin, drawn by the region’s exceptional porcelain and later introducing their own porcelain products in the United States. The Open Sky collection is available for purchase at the Daum-Haviland flagship boutique in New York City. (www.haviland.fr)
