About Nicolas Krafft

For almost two centuries, Christofle has been a leader in the art of silver and a proponent of innovation and design. From the very beginning, Charles Christofle realized that luxury was more than just a product; it was a lifestyle to be developed and perfected. To this day, Christofle believes that a life style is a personal sensibility of the finer things in life –a highly cultivated taste in culture and a superior palate in food, wine, and, of course, Champagne.
