The savoir-faire of furniture upholstery and sheathing fashions fabrics to realise textile decoration in interior space. The craftsmen related to this know-how create hangings, net curtains, curtain, or cushion. They also realise garniture of old and contemporary seats.

The know-how

Upholstery is a traditional and ancestral craft. It combines the upholstery and the interior design techniques. Mastering the skills of this craft as it is practised today, represents the heritage passed on through the centuries, from a master to its apprentice. This savoir-faire consists in adorned wing chairs, squat armchairs, cabriolet chairs and Voltaire chairs, as well as various other types of seating.

The sheathing involves the practice of covering any items or furniture with fabric, leather, felt or other materials. Creations can include the manufacture of cabinets for solicitors, with a gilded or  leather front panel. There is also the production of stylish and contemporary desk items such as blotters, binders, notepads, pencil pots, hunting diaries, cellar books, etc., as well as drawer compartments for storage.

In furniture restoration, traditional seat filling is made of natural materials, such as:

  • Animal hair: this washed, carded hair, of animal origin (horse or cattle), can be blond or grey.
  • Plant-based filling: this plant-based filling comes from dwarf palms. It has the same properties and the same appearance as animal hair.
  • Elancrin: this is entirely made of coconut fibre.

Futhermore, contemporary seat filling favours the use of modern materials, such as foam. It is made from synthetic material and produced in several densities. It is available in different qualities.
