Lalique is offering another journey into the world of nature which has always been a major source of inspiration for the house. The current journey takes us to the sea with the house’s Aquatique Collection which harnesses the power of fighting fish and the beauty of ornamental koi and carp. The master glass makers of Lalique capture the light, sculpting it to create beautiful pieces for the decor like the carpe koi bud vases in Persepolis blue, mint green or clear crystal. The collection also includes beautiful sculptures, a decanter and a fruit bowl. The Horse of Poseidon sculpture in clear crystal and mounted on a marble base draws its inspiration from Greek mythology, the chariot of Poseidon was said to be drawn by seahorses, and the sculpture exudes a power and strength as it seemingly emerges from the water. The exceptional work has been brought out in a limited edition of 188 pieces.

Lalique has accompanied us since 1888 with its elegant home ware, objets d’art, jewelry and more recently perfume but Lalique is not just a brand for it was founded by a renowned artist René-Jules Lalique. His first collection of jewelry drew its inspiration from Antiquity and Japanese themes and initially he devoted himself to creating unique collections of jewelry bursting with precious stones but already incorporating enamel and glass into his ornaments. The legendary collaboration with one of the great perfume makers, François Coty for whom he fashioned so many unforgettable perfume bottles would also mark the history of the house which celebrated its 130th anniversary in 2018.
