Says Marie Daage…
“Table setting is akin to getting dressed for the day: you create it by layers, starting with basics, and adding accents and accessories. You can mix and match any patterns, as long as you have a good basic colour palette with several matching colours.
Like a wardrobe staple, the ‘little black dress’, new excitement is created at the table by changing just a plate or cup.
Your table is a reflection of who you are. Dress it tastefully as you would yourself –and create an environment that invites you to dine!
Do not be afraid to experiment!
The soup tureen can be used to hold flowers, foliage can be spread on the table rather than stuck in a vase, and your charger, dinner plate and side plate do not have to match for a chic look!”
Born in Austria, raised in the French West Indies and educated at the School of The Louvre, Marie Daâge started hand-painting on Limoges porcelain in 1990. Her creativity and respect of a heritage craft, quickly led her to work with artisan painters from the Limoges’ region.
Passionate about the decorative arts, Marie Daâge designs her collections as a maison de haute couture. As a fashion house, Marie Daâge unveils a new series of collections and colors each year, playing with timeless motifs and contemporary trends.
The collections offer perfect stand-alone ranges, but can also be layered with other collections, enabling new looks for every meal, from colorful brunch to the most sophisticated evening look.
Marie Daâge collections are some of the very last to be painted entirely by hand as opposed to printed patterns. The resulting pieces represent a rare combination of fine Limoges porcelain, patterned not with the usual rigid decorative motifs but with playful and expressive hand-painting. Each piece is a unique piece of art.
Marie Daâge is a major player on the French luxury and international decorative arts scene.
