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.

All art professionals are invited to contact me. I can realize custom frame and mirrors indifferent style and finsih.
