Spring is full of festive occasions, but you don’t need to wait for a special event to celebrate. Caputine and David Gooding, founders of the luxury tableware company Juliska, were inspired by the idea of “L’Amour and Savoir Vivre” when they designed their latest collections:
For us, Savoir Vivre is making time for the people and things you love. It’s adding beauty to each moment and rejoicing in it, laughing with friends until your belly bursts . . . it’s fresh flowers on your table and cloth napkins at every meal . . . it’s not skimping on the things you love and thankfulness for what you have. Take the average moment and turn it into something delicious . . .
“Setting a table is like composing a work of art – although there are some rules, no one ever created anything interesting when strictly abiding by them. Each piece of Juliska’s Country Estate Collection features a different scene that weaves a narrative of country life through its brushstrokes.” Text via Juliska brochure.
