French ceramics are among the world’s best and La Tuile à Loup is my favorite Paris pottery boutique. I visited the shop on a trip to France last fall and have been dreaming about the pieces ever since. Owner Eric Goujou has an impeccable eye and sells the dreamiest collection of handmade, hand-painted French pottery. I love that each and every piece is unique, and treated myself to a small blue and green bowl as a souvenir (until I can afford a full set!). I’m headed to Rome and Paris next month and am hoping to add to my collection. Unlike most marbled ceramics which are simply marbleized on the surface, many of the pieces sold at La Tuile à Loup are actually made of marbled clay. Below, explore some of my favorite La Tuile à Loup designs.
On the company’s wonderful instagram account, Goujou often shares inspiring table settings.
While the shop sells a variety of styles, the marbled plates are my personal favorites.
A close-up of a marbleized plate. Clearly, it’s the work of a true craftsman.
This pink and blue table setting is stunning from above. Also love the green taper candles.
Another marbled plate style available in the boutique. It really doesn’t get any chicer.
The blue marbled ceramics are available as plates, platters, urns, and more.
This navy blue table setting is as classic as they come. Love the monogrammed linens and octagonal plates.

Another gorgeous table setting. The little ceramic birds are so sweet and I wish I could recreate that tulip centerpiece.

Green and brown are such a great combo.
The pairing of the pink linen tablecloth and brown and blue ceramics is romantic and chic. Also, love the simple potted greenery on the table.

For spring, they have playful plates with fruit—strawberries, cherries, apricots, and plums.
The shop also sells charming handmade baskets.
Looking for a little red, white, blue table setting inspiration this Memorial Day? Look no further. I love everything about this look from the floral tablecloth to the hand-painted pottery.
The blue taper candles pop. Sometimes throwing an unexpected hue into the mix makes all the difference.
Marbled plates for those that favor earth tones. Artichokes never looked so good.
Peach, orange, and burgundy marbled plates with golden yellow napkins. The tomatoes casually placed down the center of the table are so wonderful.
This yellow marbled plate is another one of my favorites. It looks brilliant paired with the bright napkin on the simple, white linen tablecloth.
Blue and white fans will love this table setting.
Even the cutlery is perfection. Absolutely, positively gorgeous.
