It’s always wonderful to meet the people behind the brands when you are a writer and finally witnessing Villeroy & Boch‘s gorgeous dinnerware and hospitality at the Ambiente Fair while in Frankfurt, Germany was a night we all will remember for a lifetime. If you remember back in 2013 Stagetecture paired up with Villeroy & Boch US to host the ‘Travel the World Contest” and our other post which featured their everyday crystal drinkware.

Our night begins at the Villeroy & Boch booth at Ambiente
We started the evening after the main Ambiente Fair closed and the individual brands hosted their own private functions in their booths. Villeroy & Boch greeted us with fruity cocktails and a chance to walk around to see their latest dinnerware, crystal and collections.
Featured Villeroy & Boch Collections
Floreana & For Me
Delicate and feminine dinnerware
For Me (White Dinnerware):
Villeroy & Boch has developed the modern country collection For Me to cater for all those who enjoy relaxed but stylish meals at home, no matter whether they are eating alone, as a couple or with a large party. The multitalented tableware is distinguished by its timeless design with clear lines, gentle transitions and pleasing shapes.
Floreana (Floral Patterns):
The décor draws inspiration from the floral patterns of historical copperplates and from the famous Mettlacher Plat2ten, which so influenced the history and aesthetics of Villeroy & Boch’s tableware and tiles in the 19th and at the beginning of the 20th centuries. Well-known décors like Brombeere, Rubus and Phönix have been drawn upon, reinterpreted and placed in a contemporary context. Applied using watercolour techniques in fresh blue, green and red, the resulting décor has a contemporary modern aura.
Artesano Provençal Lavender
The new décor Artesano Provençal Lavender features scattered sprigs of delicate lavender in strong shades of violet and dark red buds. The motifs of the décor are set off against a warm beige that resembles light-coloured wood and surrounded by a violet border around the edge of the plate.
This was my favorite!
