Cristal d’Arques Paris first graced the world stage in 1968, and for almost fifty years now has given an exquisite sense of French elegance and ‘le chic’ to the everyday. Each of our diverse collections perfectly balance subtlety and sophistication with the strength and performance of high quality Cristal d’Arques crystalline. Deceivingly durable and innovative, each piece brings classic design and the luxury of another era into the modern home.
The new collections are inspired by Art déco, with its bold geometric shapes, and its extravagant taste for rounded corners, angled lines and facets. The designs reflect codes in architecture, jewellery and Haute couture.
Featuring stylized shapes, precious colours, symmetrical motifs and perfect proportions, these collections mark a new chapter in the history of table arts and decoration.

In 1968, Verrerie Cristallerie d’Arques revolutionised the world of tableware by introducing a fundamental industrial innovation: the automated production of crystal. This technical prowess has finally made luxury crystal glasses, decanters and accessories more widely affordable. This development gave rise to the brand Cristal d’Arques, which, ever since its creation, has been designing elegant objects, which embody the “French touch”. Our in-house designers are constantly turning to new sources of inspiration and have an excellent grasp of the materials used specifically for Cristal d’Arques Paris.
Arc invests heavily in its Research and Development department. Our experts anticipate developments in consumption trends and think up innovative new materials and procedures that are more environmentally-friendly and in line with customer needs.
Built on this expertise and daily attention to detail, the Kwarx, which is used to manufacture all our Cristal d’Arques Paris products, is lead-free and resistant to shocks and dishwashers, guaranteeing luxury products suitable for everyday use.
Cristal d’Arques Paris will therefore continue to stand the test of time and changing trends without ever losing sight of its values or traditions, driven by its desire to embody modernity and to permanently push back the limits of its creativity.
