Le Cadeaux was founded in 2002 back when the only melamine on the market was thin and basic white (think airplane food plates) and the seed for luxury and fashionable melamine was not yet planted. The founder who owned a French homewares and tabletop store at the time in Los Angeles had a beautiful vision that there were passionate entertainers who aspired to dress their outdoor tables and set the mood for their poolside parties with the same wow factor as their indoor gatherings yet feared their beautiful European ceramic tableware might be shattered by an enthusiastic yet clumsy guest! With this strong creative vision firmly in mind, he set about to have a collection of beautiful heavy weight melamine that would have the look and feel of real ceramic with designs inspired by the French and Italian countryside. The collections were instantly embraced by consumers, and “well known” upscale home and kitchen retail chains began to call to request this pioneer of better melamine create new collection for their stores. The luxury melamine market was born and, in the founder’s, own words. “I took a basic and made it fashion” … Crafted with a heavier weight and texture surface treatments, our luxury melamine has the appearance of real ceramic. Our melamine is 100% melamine (not all brands are), shatter resistant, and BPA free. Table art that is beautiful enough to dress the table for any indoor or outdoor gathering yet offers the practicality of being virtually unbreakable and dishwasher safe. Our glassware in highest quality Polycarbonate, Tritan, and Acrylic is shatter resistant and dishwasher safe. Our coordinating triple ply "soft touch" paper napkins and placemats made from recycled paper complete the look of the fashionably dressed table. Our matching gift sets (many sweetly paired with Laguiole utensils or tea towels) and our broad range of accent pieces within each collection goes beyond the typical melamine ranges found elsewhere on the market.
