Let us be crystal—With 250+ years experience to their name—and a French pedigree shared by design royalty like Maison Jansen— Baccarat knows a thing or two about transparently good design.
Before Baccarat was the name of the world’s most famous crystal company, Baccarat was the name of a struggling village in Northeast France. Plagued by infertile ground, King Louis XV issued a grant that allowed a single glass company to take root. Call it divine order—Baccarat crystal thrived. With a history as rich as foie gras itself, Baccarat pieces have been designed for King Louis XVIII, Russian parliament, Coco Chanel, and cabaret legend, Josephine Baker.
