After more than 25 years managing the Paris Ceramics showroom at the A&D Building in NYC, Lorraine Valenti has a lot of stories to tell, and many of them date as far back as the 17th century. As innovators in the field of antique stone, the company relies on liaisons around the globe to source and reclaim beautiful stone that will find new life and appreciation in the homes of Paris Ceramics’ clients. “When it comes to stone,” Valenti says, “you can walk through India with me, France, Bulgaria, England, Malta, Romania. I can go around the world with you.” But their expertise doesn’t stop there. Wood from Spain and beyond and Mother of Pearl from India also find their way to this NY showroom. Clients who are curious about the history and origin of the products they bring into their homes will get lost in the stories this company’s product can tell.
