Christofle continues to place Creativity at the heart of its values. Creativity that Christofle encourages and develops in its own creative studio which is at the origin of many iconic products, including the famous MOOD by Christofle. Creativity also shared, since the Maison has always been inviting artists and designers to collaborate in the creation of articles that are successfully part of its heritage (Gio Ponti, Ora-Ito, Andrée Putman, Marcel Wanders, Karl Lagerfeld… and more recently Pharrell Wiliams)

For Christofle, Generosity is an essential virtue. It can be found in the style of its products whose design and sparkle give off a magnificent aura that has the power to impact a place by embellishing it and sublimate the moment.

Brand History

In 1830, Charles Christofle, the House’s founder, created a jewelry workshop under his own name. Within a decade, it became one of the capital’s most important jewelers.
A visionary with a passion for technical innovation, he revolutionized the world of silverware by having the audacity to offer, starting in 1842, a new kind of silver-plated or gilded silverware that sealed his reputation, including flatware holloware and centerpieces, decorative objects and sculptures. Thanks to this initiative, from that time onward the dining room became the primary room in the house.

Christofle quickly became the purveyor to King Louis-Philippe and supplied the French royal House of Orleans as well as Napoléon III, starting in 1850. Around that time, after becoming the purveyor of royal families, Christofle also began outfitting all the new luxury destinations: hotels, restaurants, trains and ocean liners, then airplanes. Its know-how and technical creativity were celebrated and received numerous awards at national exhibitions and world fairs.

As a goldsmith, Charles Christofle transformed ceremonial items and everyday objects: from jewelry to cutlery, gold smithery to sculptures, and decorative objects to tableware. This is how silver came to be an integral player in art of living today.

Craftsmanship

More than a vocation, silversmithing is an art whose origins reach back to highest Antiquity. It requires the specialized skills of various kinds of artisans. Whether it’s for a simple flatware or a more complex piece, each one of them, at a given stage of production, will exercise a specific kind of know-how, a unique gesture that will give shape and spirit to the object that passes through his hands.

Today, Christofle upholds these traditional types of expertise in its Haute Orfèvrerie workshop in Normandy, where it counts among its artisans two Meilleurs Ouvriers de France (Best Craftsmen in France).

Almost 200 years of unique heritage and exceptional know-how!
