Bastille Day Bonne Fete!

Sunday, July 13, 11am-5pm

Bastille Day is a day of celebrations of French culture. Come sip champagne and see all of the new items at Chateau Sonoma. Two of our favorite lines have just arrived:

Astier de Villatte ceramics dinnerware are entirely handmade in Paris, France. Made of black terracotta clay, the pieces are extremely durable yet surprisingly light to the touch making them perfect for everyday use. The namesake tableware collection is inspired by 18th and 19th century designs and is glazed to create a milky white finish.

Vox Populi lighting and decorative objects made from old materials – amazing works of art! Tucked away on a charming Avignon street, you will find the enchanting world of Pascal Palun inside her mesmerizing studio, Vox Populi.  Here lies brocante treasure, beautiful objects and fabulous lighting that travel the world once they leave Pascal’s watchful and trained eye.
