We believe a gathering table should have lots of treasures collected along the way... an eclectic mix of objet d’art, sentimental keepsakes, colorful accents and serving pieces that enhance.
Entertaining is an art and the pieces used at the occasion help make a vivid memory that your guests will enjoy for years to come. It’s the little intricate accents that make the big or small gatherings special.
Two artists and one curator all sharing a passion for creating gatherings that overflow with hospitality and all details to make the guests feel welcomed have come together to bring you Tré.
-Michelle and Clemencia-
Raised in Southwest Louisiana surrounded with southern hospitality and traditions, I began as a young child enjoying and sharing the passion and joy of entertaining with my family…who always seem to be celebrating something!
Starting with the influences and love of my maternal grandmother and aunt, I formed my values on faith, family and hospitality. Whether it was a casual crawfish boil on a Friday, cocktails and hor d’oeuvers after mass on Saturday or formal lunch on Sunday, they entertained and displayed southern hospitality at its best!
Over the years, I watched and joined as my parents carried on these traditions throughout my childhood and adulthood and my mother remains “The Hostess with the Mostess”.
The little details are what I remember very vividly and is captured in all the old photos! Whether it was the china and crystal they chose, or the color of the paper napkins, or the flowers and napkin rings at the place settings, or even the themed cakes ...These are what made the memories and the occasions extra special!!
My husband and I have carried on these traditions in our Houston home and other destinations where we have welcomed guests and hosted celebrations over the years, and I’ve so delighted in seeing my daughter begin to do the same!
It’s clearly my joy and passion, and I hope the next generations in our family will continue with our traditions! We create lifelong memories and there is nothing better!
So, it’s pretty obvious why I was delighted to reconnect with a longtime friend, Clemencia Larrimore, who happens to also be an amazingly talented artist and join our talents and passions to create TRE’.
Clemencia creates the beauty in all ways and I use my education and career experience in visual merchandising and marketing to bring the product to you!!
We enjoy collaborating with artisans to create a hand curated collection that enhances her works and offer you endless items for your gatherings, home décor and elegant gifts
Here’s to the Gatherings…and Laissez le Bon Ton Roulet!
Inspired by her Colombian roots and culture, Tré founder and artist, Clemencia Larimore, creates art that is fully functional for entertaining, gifting, and admiring.
Layers and layers, revision after revision, hours and hours…she creates original pieces that will be treasured in your home or given to others to enjoy!
Current offerings in her collection include hand painted and giclée trays, charcuterie boards, happy hour boards, and coasters.
Clemencia’s art is always evolving, and she enjoys discovering new functional art pieces that create such elegant and memorable settings. Opening TRÉ the Gallery, in Round Top in October of 2021, was not only a leap of faith but a fulfillment of a long-time dream! The gallery allows Clemencia to showcase her collections, along with so many other artists’ pieces in the most harmonious and peaceful setting. The gallery is always evolving, collaborating, and supporting newfound artists, which is one of the most joyful aspects of our business.
Clemencia enjoys spending most of her weekend days in Round Top! As clients enter the gallery, they are greeted with warmest hospitality that starts with her smile and may be followed by a glimpse of one of her precious dogs right by her side! Clemencia with the help of her business partner has created one of the most unique and enjoyable environments to explore functional art and have a great visit along the way.
When not hosting clients at the gallery, Clemencia and her husband and children enjoy hosting gatherings, large or small, for friends and family, as well as charitable events at their Round Top residence. She is very active in the Round Top community and looks forward to managing and growing the gallery and expanding our year-round presence in a place she truly considers HOME!
