MALMAISON YESTERDAY AND TODAY

 

 

Named after the Château de la Malmaison, the favorite residence of Napoleon Bonaparte and Empress Josephine, the Malmaison collection is characterised by its symmetrical motifs, alternating water leaves and palmettes, typical of the Empire style.

 

Under Napoleon III, nephew of Napoleon I, the Empire style became fashionable again. For their sumptuous receptions in Paris and Biarritz, Empress Eugenie and Napoleon III called on Christofle, which became the official supplier to the imperial couple.

 

In 1909, during the effervescence of the Roaring Twenties, Christofle brought the Empire style up to date by creating the Malmaison Empire Collection, which was simply renamed Malmaison in the 1960s.

The Malmaison collection evokes Napoleon and Josephine. Malmaison is their castle, their first prestigious residence near Paris. Here the Empire style was born, a mixture of Roman clacisism and the return from Egypt. Symmetry. Exoticism. A conquering spirit softened by the feminine touch of the influential Josephine, who made it an elegant and timeless style.

WATER LEAVES AND PALMETTES

 

The Malmaison collection is characterised by its palmettes motifs and the elegant outline of water leaves such as the lotus leaves often used in the form of friezes. A recurring decorative element since antiquity, both in decoration and architecture, the palm leaf or palmette evokes the exoticism of ancient Egypt, the East that fascinates.

The use of gadroons and the symmetry of their arrangement give the silverware in the collection its emblematic appearance.

THE ROYAL EAGLE

 

In the collection of table accessories, such as the champagne bucket, evocations of the eagle recall memories of Ancient Rome before becoming the imperial emblem. The eagle is also the symbol of the powerful Jupiter, often associated with power and military victories. This symbol, used on many pieces of the collection, gave birth to certain emblematic pieces such as the Malmaison saucer or the centrepiece, which are still among the most appreciated today.

 

200 years after Napoleon's death, the Malmaison style is still relevant, still refined, a combination of rigour and audacity, it crosses the ages and still gives the table as much allure, while sharing its imperial pleasures.
