From Mariel to Pharrel

 pharrell-bernardaudWelcome to The Breaking Dish! Our new online magazine is the latest way to continue over sixty-five years of bringing family and friends together at the table. As President and head buyer of the global retail leader of dinnerware, flatware and stemware, it is an honor to continue the legacy of my mentor, Mrs. Ashley.
I want to take you with me to Paris, Milan and Frankfurt. We will introduce you to top designers, show you how we set trends and share our expert tips on creating your own personal style. You will be in good company. Pharrel Williams voted for our selection of Bernardaud porcelain while dining in Paris. Reese Witherspoon loves one of our favorite tea cups. Actress, author and healthy living advocate Mariel Hemingway recently visited us to discuss 360 degrees of beauty and her latest book, “Out Came The Sun.”

Let me take you behind the scenes to meet our in house interior design team, kitchenware specialists and the product experts who run through miles of shelves, selecting and wrapping your treasures in our iconic gold boxes.
We have shared in your most memorable moments- an elaborate wedding to a Sunday morning coffee with that special someone. Now, let us share a video on the making of fine bone china or how to pin your own registry online. We will be lending our skills to a tea party worthy of Downton Abbey and will take you to the Honda Indy in style.

As you race from the office to the comfort of a soothing bubble bath (or your hockey night in Canada ritual), let us help you find the perfect glass to perch at your side- luxury has never been so accessible. Join me on Pintrest, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to continue the conversation.Cheers and welcome to our family at William Ashley- bringing magic to everyday and every occasion.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
