Lalique was founded in 1885 by Parisian glass and jewellery designer René Lalique. In the 1920s at the height of the art deco era he was the most celebrated glassmaker in the world, and was responsible for the iconic glass walls and columns on the SS Normandie. He revolutionized the glassware industry by turning to mass production and developed industrial techniques to produce usable glass objects on a large scale, bringing decorative glass into the homes of working people.

Over a century later, the Lalique name remains synonymous with exceptional quality glassware, blending classic and modern to create striking pieces of design, which would enhance any home. The brand stays true to René’s vision, drawing inspiration from his life and from his favourite holiday spot, Ay.
