"I've always been proud of maintaining my Lyonnais roots and my connection with my native city. Lyon's centuries old reputation for artistry and fine craftsmanship-not just in cuisine-remains vital and vibrant even today. The Comité Bellecour and its diverse members truly exemplify Lyon's standing as a city where beautiful handmade objects are still a dearly held tradition. We are happy to partner this year with our Parisian colleagues of Prestige et Tradition to bring an even larger collection of French luxury goods to La Grande Décoration / French Art de Vivre this fall.” Daniel Boulud


Comité Bellecour and Prestige et Tradition were both founded as platforms to champion the elegance and luxury of artistic and artisanal trades for which France is known around the world. Many of the exhibitors are currently commercially active in the U.S.
