Hilton McConnico, a Memphis Tennessee native, moved to Paris in 1965 to work for Yves Saint Laurent and Ted Lapidus. He went on to become a Cesar-winning movie set designer. In the 1980s he began designing objects for France’s best makers including Daum and Cristalleries de Saint Louis, combining his American aesthetic [think cacti and chili peppers] with French refinement, quality and je ne sais quoi.
