BEHIND THE BRAND: JAN BARBOGLIO
Entertaining is our love language, from extravagantly glorious weddings and events to more intimate affairs at home. Our rentals are curated to reflect your personal style and aesthetic, but we have to admit, that we love a brand with an amazing origin story. Couple that sentiment with Southern Texas flair and you have our hearts forever.
A STORIED CAREER
Jan Barboglio likely needs no introduction, especially for those living in the heart of Texas. Equally parts fashion, lifestyle, and home decor designer and society mainstay, Jan is the quintessential Southern woman. Always elegant, always herself, and a muse to those who rely on the spirit of the Southern borders as a place for inspiration. In short, she’s an icon. Her weighted influence reaches from her family ranch in Mexico, all over Texas, and into the magical leanings of New Mexico.
WHY WE CHOSE IT
Besides being the ultimate fangirls? Well, the craftsmanship and design alone transcend trends. A Jan Barbolgio piece earns an unmistakable patina over time, evolving into a timeless heirloom. Each offering epitomizes a hacienda lifestyle and Old Mexico elegance. Her trademark designs are a distinctive combination of bronze, iron, and copper that take everyday entertaining essentials beyond function and into magical layers of a life well lived. The POSH Jan Barboglio Collection is a culmination of over twenty one-of-a-kind pieces, ranging from grande candelabras to votives, vases, hurricanes, platers, and catering service dishes. The most epic pieces (and we don’t use epic lightly) were custom creations for her own daughter's fabulous traditional wedding. We purchased the only sets available after the happy union, and they are now used for the most fabulous affairs in Texas and beyond.
HOW TO SET IT
We always say play with the plates and set what you love. Jan Barboglio’s pieces have their own spirit of influence. The weight of handcrafter elements anchors the table, making it easy to add personal light layers and well-loved patterns into the mix. Our friends at Vestals Catering used the occasion of an outdoor farmhouse-style table to use our beloved Jan Barboglio tulipan Boutqet Candleabra–a towering centerpiece that works well with high ceilings or open sky. It is without a doubt that when it comes to setting the table for the most special occasions, these pieces should be at the top of your list.
