Setting the Provençal Table

Setting the Provençal Table
At once casual and stylish, colorful and composed, the Provençal table epitomizes the pleasures of entertaining.

Ideal for relaxed dining, our Fleur de Bois dinnerware and serveware set the scene for a Mediterranean-style table. Fleur de Bois translates as "woodland flowers," and these pieces reflect the natural hues of the Provençal countryside. The sunny gold of the hills forms the base color for the tableware, while the patterns are hand painted in various shades of green, red and blue found in the region's meadows and woods. The rustic shapes mimic the bowls, plates, pitchers and platters that Provençal potters have crafted for centuries. This collection is ideal for mixing and matching to suit your preferences.

While Fleur de Bois pieces make a beautiful impression on a bare table, the luminous colors of our Provence linens complement the tableware perfectly. Available in multiple colors, these linens are decorated with a floral pattern that is screen-printed by hand; they carry the look of classic textiles from Provence.

To complete the French country look, finish your table setting with our pressed-glass Chateau glassware and Laguiole flatware (the knives bear the legendary hallmark of a bee). Fill the pitchers with wine and water, arrange grilled lamb and ratatouille on the platters, and savor good food in the company of friends and family.
