From her showroom in the 7th district of Paris, Muriel Grateau reinvents the arts of the table with radicality, modernity, freedom. She "claw" her parisian touch and taste for design, interiors around the world. Porcelain tinted in the mass, flax with a hundred hues, crystal or Murano glass, she works the look and not the fashion. And Paris invites itself to the four corners of the globe.

Designer of fashion in a first life for the older ones, Mario Valentino or Diego Della Valle, Murielle Grateau applies to the house the same aesthetic bias of the pace. Not to mention the famous phrase of Coco Chanel "You will not have twice the opportunity to make a good impression".

A table prepared says as much as the housewife's dress. Muriel Grateau is the tableware specialist. She creates services in matt or hand-streaked porcelain, monochrome sensitive or explosion of colored spots, twenty-five pieces per service in thirty-five versions. The tablecloths of linen decline a hundred hues, dozens of pink, blue, green, ocher different.
