The Chirstofle Craftsmanship

Where artistry, creativity, and luxury meet

Few people in this world – whether design-obsessed or not – aren’t instantly exhilarated at the thought of a Christofle piece adorning their home. It’s a name that carries with it age-old prestige and luxury and without a doubt, remains the pinnacle brand for venerable homeware.

When you think of a home decked out in Christofle details, something palatial, grand, and dreamy comes to mind. A mix of progressive aesthetics in tandem with drama, culminating in a holistically bourgeois lifestyle.

The Parisian silver brand was founded in 1830 by Charles Christofle, who at the time, put forward a metal hallmark – a stamp guaranteeing the origin and quality of metal goods which was then authorized by the French government in 1832.

When society at the time made do with wooden and tin cutlery, and the aristocrats used silver or gold flatware, Mr. Christofle investigated the technological innovation of gold and silver-plating using electrolysis, enabling the production of metal-plated items and acquired the patents in 1841.

Between gracing the tables of Louise-Philippe and Napoléon III, Christofle has become a mainstay in modern palace hotels around the world. As the Maison continues its almost two-century story, Christofle remains an arbiter of unique know-how, modernizing its techniques and execution as a leader in the world of design. 

A Christofle piece is entirely done by hand in line with traditional techniques during the manufacturing process.

Before descending the shop floors, each piece of silverware is given a special vintage mark, allowing it to be traced back to its date of creation.
