Ercuis-Raynaud unveil new collections
From French flatware and Limoges porcelain brand Ercuis-Raynaud comes two brand new designs
Known for its high quality and stunning range of cutlery, Ercuis-Raynaud has launched several new collections – Transat and Paradis - for 2015.
A further addition to its Transat silverware collection launched in 2010, Ercuis presents new cutlery in silver metal with round and generous handles.
Perfectly ergonomic, the handles are decorated with the same finely chiselled stripes as the other pieces in the collection (champagne bucket, ice bucket, cups, bowls, etc.).
The Transat collection is reminiscent of the 1930s, when Ercuis provided silverware for legendary cruise liners like the "Normandie".
Raynaud has created a new enchanting pattern designed in collaboration with a great name in English interior design: Fromental. The pattern comes from its Chinoiserie wallpaper collection and represents the exotic and luxuriant natural environment inhabited by birds of paradise and butterflies, a virgin landscape that invites us to dream and escape.
The main pieces are also available in a second turquoise version. Here, the multicoloured patterns are highlighted by a background in a metallic colour, reproducing the textile weft of the wallpaper.
Founded in 1867 in the village of Ercuis (north of Paris), Ercuis creates different ranges of cutlery as well as metal tableware items. In the 20th century, grand hotels, legendary cruise liners like the "Normandie" and the famous Orient‐Express train dressed their tables with Ercuis silverware. Today, Ercuis regularly works with contemporary designers. Fine cuisine, grand hotels and luxury transport remain a key source of inspiration for its creations.
In 1919, Martial Raynaud acquired a porcelain factory near Limoges (central France). For inspiration for his designs he turned to Art Nouveau and Art Deco. The 1950s were marked by collaborations with artists including Salvador Dali and Jean Cocteau. In 1992, silversmith Ercuis joined the capital of Raynaud. Bertrand Raynaud, representing the 3rd generation of porcelain makers, became Chairman of the Board.
