Puiforcat lovelies

Ahh, decorating the home. Is there anything as fun as owning a space and making it yours? I love dreaming and putting together something beautiful.

Puiforcat is one of my favorite French brands, and has been around since 1820 when it was founded by Emile Puiforcat. While it was bought out by Hermès in 1996, it still produces some of the finest silver in the world. While not as ornate as some brands (see Tiffany & Co.) it was incredibly influential to many brands that exist today. Some of the Puiforcat family’s earliest designs in jewelry are on display at the Louvre.

The great-grandson of Emile, Jean Puiforcat (pictured above, source), is the one who brought a lot of attention to the family brand, particularly due to his Art Deco designs.

Today, some of the pieces from Puiforcat’s archives are still made, but like many beautiful things from the past you will be lucky if they cross your path! Otherwise, you can just settle for some pretty incredible silverwear – what they currently focus on.
