The hand-beading by Old-World artisans held much more value than what I was seeing in tabletop in the U.S. Why not bring the craft to this category?
We want our clients to feel it’s their taste and personality reflected in their table.
A Colorful Reinvention
Most dining accessories in the ‘90s were very basic. “The only thing on the table with color was the flowers!” Kim points out. She was redecorating her apartment and began designing those items for herself. “My friends and co-workers saw what I was doing and asked if they could place orders, too,” she says.
She brought samples to Henri Bendel’s open viewing day for up-and-coming designers. The assistant buyer took one look and referred her to the head buyer. Neiman Marcus soon followed—with an order for all stores, understanding their customers wanted fashion for their table as well as their closet. It was 1998, and Kim Seybert, the brand, was born, establishing an entirely new category of modern table décor.
A Passion for Place, and Place Settings
Today, the company’s exuberant seasonal collections are regularly featured in major design and lifestyle media; they adorn the tables of celebrities, creatives, business leaders, fine hotels and restaurants, and people who love to entertain, whether on their yacht or their dining room.
The original styles spotlight handicrafts of countries from Kim’s travels: beading, hand dying, embroidery, hand-painting and mouth-blown glass are hallmarks of her design. Selections have expanded from placemats, table runners, tablecloths, napkins or napkin rings to include dinnerware/barware, flatware, coasters, cocktail napkins and special collaborations, like the Baccarat x Kim Seybert line.
