Verreries des Lumières, meaning The Lights glass factories in English, was created by Marie and Pascal in 2009. Their common passion for the glassware and its ancestral handmade creation was the start of La Verrerie des Lumières journey. Their inspiration originates from the royal art de vivre from the Renaissance period to the Age of Enlightment (15th to 18th century). In a nutshell, their creations give a touch of royalty and History to our homes.
Their creative process begins with historical research visiting French museums, and especially the MAD Paris, Musée des Arts Décoratifs, close to the Louvre. Then, respectful of the historical techniques, they produce the blown glass and give rise to these beautiful creations. Wow fact: you can find their creations in historical movies! They are an official provider of glassware for French and international cinema. Their creations were seen for example on the TV show Versailles.
