PARADIS FOUND: Raynaud Has (Re)Entered the Chat

Excuse-moi! Don’t call it a comeback. Raynaud has been setting the standard for aesthetically alluring tablescapes for over a century.

For those in the know, Raynaud has perpetuated the elegant beauty of Limoges porcelain tradition for over a century. Through three generations of entrepreneurs, this storied French brand has refined tablescape traditions with a truly poetic vision in art and luxurious home entertaining. Time-honored expertise, high standards, and imaginative details define Raynaud porcelain, making it a coveted heritage piece among many a tastemaker’s personal fine dining and china collections.


In 1911, Martial Raynaud established his namesake workshop in Limoges, France, enamored by the magic of “White Gold”—or as it’s known by today’s standards, porcelain.

The end product has reached such a level of flawlessness that the IGP label Porcelain de Limoges” expresses the exceptional perfectionism, finish, and refinement that is the pride of the Raynaud reputation. With each generation, expert craftsmanship has fit the specific Raynaud criteria — translating to exceptional calculations for firing temperatures, dedication to quality, meticulous chromolithography, perfectly molded shapes, and last but certainly not least, exquisite artistic detail, color, and design.

For those unfamiliar with the Raynaud process, chromolithography is used on each piece. To do this, a design is printed by a chromist and then affixed by hand to white porcelain by seasoned craftsmen. It is a time-consuming and meticulous process that demands attention to sophisticated detail. After firing, each molded piece is entrusted to hand-painting artists who also adhere gold and platinum before going into other sophisticated techniques of illumination and inlay before a final polish and burnished refinement in tunnel kilns with heats ranging from 800℃ to 1200 ℃.

The rarity of Raynaud’s craftsmanship is this undeniably enticing skill set that has been passed down from master to student since the founding of the company, and why we knew we wanted to include it in our POSH offerings.


Texan tastemakers are known for home entertaining, in abodes decorated by the world's top interior designers (many of whom office down the street in the Dallas Design District). These clients are prone to elevating personal tablescapes with astounding taste, as well as bringing this aesthetic philosophy to their events, which is why we couldn't wait to bring in the luxurious Raynaud Bird Paradis Charger for our beloved social birds. This enchanting Raynaud collection is a collaboration between the renowned British interior design firm Fromental. The exquisite white porcelain is hand-decorated with an overflowing, dreamlike nature of butterflies and birds of paradise, as inspired by Fromental’s wildly popular Chinoiserie wallpaper collection.

This gorgeous addition mixes well with a range of white to turquoise hues, making it a top tabletop request for pristine garden parties and galas. In our showroom, we made a point to mix it into every palette and tabletop aesthetic to showcase its unique ability to meet a theme and transform your tabletop moment.
