The Comite 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 a larger collection of French luxury goods to La Grande Decoration / French Art de Vivre this fall." - Daniel Boulud
