The Veronese story begins in 1931 – the heyday for the decorative arts in Paris. Following the launch of the first International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts in 1925, the City of Light witnessed an ever-increasing demand for distinct yet modern high-end designs. The late Mr. Barbier, passionate about the decorative arts, recognized the opportunity and established The House of Veronese. Seeing the potential for glass blowing to meet the demands of the 1930s market for exclusive modern design, Mr. Barbier set out to create Murano glass decorative art within the style of modern French design.
The House of Veronese continues to pursue its legacy as set out by Barbier in 1931 – the fusion of Murano traditions with French design – while also maintaining the spirit of discovery and experimentation. Today, Veronese makes a concerted effort to inspire each and every creative force behind Veronese designs – master artisans, architects and designers alike – in order to explore new ideas and materials that could further enhance Murano design traditions. Whilst remaining committed to these traditions, the creative team continuously seeks out new talent to bring something fresh to the yearly Veronese collections. Every day is a new day at Veronese.
