Villeroy and Boch Naif ChristmasThink back to your childhood when things were simple and whenever you see the pastoral scenes of Villeroy and Boch's Design Naif Christmas, you think of your childhood. There is something nostalgic and sweet about these scenes that even urbanites seem to react with the same emotion.
The simplicity of this pattern is clearly defined by the style of painting. “Naïve” is a style of painting that depicts a childlike simplicity in its subject matter and technique. Which takes us straight to the wonderful french folk artist who created this pattern for Villeroy and Boch, Gerard Laplau. Mr. Laplau had created a Christmas Card for UNICEF. Villeroy & Boch saw this card and commissioned him to create a pattern in its likeness. In 1979, “Design Naif” was born. Talk about a design that stands the test of time!
