The Entertaining Essential

Made from durable porcelain in a refined profile, the Catering collection is Brian’s go-to for parties and entertaining all year round, but particularly during the holiday season. It stacks perfectly on a kitchen island for buffet service and then each 12-piece set conveniently packs up into its boxes.

The Casual Touch

Whether Brian is setting a full buffet table or just putting out breads and charcuteries when a few friends drop by, he loves to layer wood serving bowls and boards against crisp white china or porcelain. It warms up the table and makes it feel effortlessly casual.

The Festive Place Card

Brian loves to embellish his holiday table with an individual ornament layered onto each place setting to serve as a festive place card. To try this at home, just write your guest’s name on the ornament or tie a little namecard to it. It makes a fun keepsake for guests to take home.

The Luxurious Glass

The Pierre glassware collection brings glamour to the bar. Perfect for cocktail hour, the carved glass detail feels elevated and special, whether Brian is entertaining or enjoying a quiet evening at home.

The Go-To Glass

The German-made lead-free crystal of the Fete glassware collection has an excellent clarity and a classic profile, making it a go-to glass for Brian’s holiday table all season long.

The Versatile Detail

The Portuguese-made Belgian linen Lafayette collection layers beautifully onto any table during the holiday season. These easy-care linens can be tossed in the laundry. Brian will iron them for formal gatherings or leave them casually wrinkled for relaxed meals.

The Ultra Soft Staple

The Perfect towel collection really is just that. A super soft and absorbent cotton modal in an array of on-trend colours, it’s an easy way to update the guest bathroom for the season.

The Coziest Bed

Portuguese flannel is the perfect touch in the guest bedroom, to keep loved ones cozy on cold winter nights. With a cashmere-like feel and quality, the fabric is luxuriously soft on skin.
