Located 30km from Paris, the workshop restores your antique furniture with the greatest care. From the 18th marquetry inlaid secretary, to the Boulle marquetry furniture or cartel, the gilded console or frame, to the Louis Philippe solid wood buffet, the restoration technique will be adopted with the greatest respect according to the object and its period.
The restoration of heritage being subject to a specific code of ethics to which the workshop is attached, the working methods are therefore similar or even identical to those practised in the 17th, 18th or 19th centuries. Thus the workshop prepares itself and uses exclusively: animal glues, vegetable dyes, varnishes based on natural resins/gums, natural animal/vegetable waxes.
The use of machine tools is very limited, most of the work being done by hand using various tools, most of which are similar to those of previous centuries. The respect of the products, techniques and tools used guarantee the respect of the integrity of the object and a reversibility of the actions undertaken. The use of modern techniques can in certain cases be added to traditional techniques in order to perfect the work without however substituting them, nor derogating from the basic principles.
Any restoration can be accompanied by a detailed restoration/preservation file with photos to ensure proper monitoring of the work (on request).
