Who we are : background of a gilder

Gilder on wood, enthusiast by my job, I always have been fascinated by the delicacy of gold leaves and “massive” effect once the object is finished.

Graduated from the CFA de l’ameublement (Paris XI), I served my three year apprenticeship in the Ardustyl Workshop in Paris.
After a rewarding experience with the MaisonBalcaen (gilding furniture specialist, Paris XII),
I worked 4 years for RG workshop, specialist of restoration and copy of old wood frame (Paris and Burgundy)

Each gilging workshop gave me a specific and complementary “savoir faire” which allows me today to comfortably open my own workshop.

What we do

I am fond of what I do and I’m working with the same traditional techniques and methods of gilding on wood known since 15th century.

I restore all gilded wood (frames, mirrors, furniture, candelesticks, objects) and all style (Louis -Philippe, Louis XVI, Louis XV, Louis XIV, Louis XII, Régence, Napoléon, Empire, Art déco, Art nouveau, ..)

Restoration of gilded wood constitutes the major part of my work.
I work with Antique shops, framing shops, artits and individuals.
I also gild outdoors with wrought iron.

If you are an individual looking for a mirror or a frame, feel free to contact me. I can find it for you, and restore it before shipping. I have a network of antique dealers and individuals with whom I work regularly.
All art professionals are invited to contact me. I can realize custom frame and mirrors indifferent style and finsih.
