Tea Time with Laure Selignac

 

For Laure Selignac, tea time is a tradition practiced all year round.  It is a moment of luxury when you take time out of your day and refresh yourself with a well-deserved break.  For a few minutes, you close out the world and appreciate everything that you have worked so hard to accomplish. 

This special time is a quiet moment . . . made even more magic with a sophisticated table setting and tea service.

What porcelain tea service is right for you?  Depending on your personal tastes, you may prefer the more traditional British floral designs or something more modern chic with bold colours!

Tea time has become very fashionable in recent years and especially in the more cosmopolitan areas like London, Paris, New York and San Francisco.  More and more tea houses are opening their doors.  Luxury hotels (Meurice, Plaza Athenee. . . ) are also making tea time a standard practice featuring an elegant ambiance with exquisite French pastries such as popular macaroons, elaborate cupcakes and, of course, the classic British scone.

But, those sweet petit-fours deserve an elegant plate! Handmade porcelain from Laure Selignac is the perfect answer.

Our painters find inspiration in the world around them and often mix current home decorating trends with references to the historic past. Lifestyle trends are also an exciting source of inspiration as our team is routinely recognized for their ability to update classic designs for modern needs.

This year we have identified a key trend in the interior decorating industry and that is the recurring theme of Nature.  Taking a cue from the fashion world, you will find home accessories in 2015 will highlight Nature in all of her forms . . . floral patterns, plant patterns, ferns, insects, birds, etc. It’s all there and Laure Selignac is a forerunner in setting this trend as many of our designs feature elements of Nature in all of her glory.
