Our workshops, located in Montreuil and in Lens, concentrate all the crafts essential to our creations: assembling, chiselling, polishing, electroplating… For tailor-made projects, our dedicated team is at your disposal to realize your dreams.
We have included the renowned workshop of restorers conducted by Jean-Jacques Labaëre in Lens. They work on heritage parts belonging to private owners or museums, and give them a new life without altering them. We can rebuild an incomplete part, repair a damaged one, refresh a decor…
One of our rare skills is the mastering of mercury nitrate gilding, usually referred to “façon Or moulu”. This process enables to obtain a color equivalent to the usage of amalgam, without any risk to the environment or one’s health.
Our catalog presents our collection but is to be considered as a tool or an inspiration book, ideal to start discussing a project. Our bronze collection is even greater, with a multitude of formats, of sizes, of details, and infinite finishing touches. You are welcome to discover it.
A wide collection of original models, from Louis XIV to Art Deco style, as well as the main categories of elements in decorative bronze such as: wall light, lamp, lantern, furniture and accessories.
These creations require all the skills of our best artisans, from the finesse of the chiselling to the decoration work done on bronze. These models reflect the know-how of the House. They are presented as an inspiration book and not as a set-in stone list.
Adapting and transforming are the daily lot of our artisans.
Items created more recently, internally or in collaboration with the greatest people evolving in the design or in the arts & crafts worlds. It is the opportunity to create elements with bronze and other noble materials, while including the latest technologies.
You will find similar categories of items in the Prestige Collection, but with cleaner lines and more expressive texture.
Two sets of services are proposed: conservation and restoration.
Conservation consists in cleaning and making the item safe for usage, without touching the completion of the metal, or its integrity. Dealing with ancient heritage, objects belonging to private owners or museums, and giving it a new life without changing its essence is the exact goal of conservation.
We are also able to replenish an incomplete item, to repair a damaged one, to redo a decor: this is restoration work.
Our great experience has enabled our workshops of Montreuil and Pas-de-Calais (was known as Lustrerie Labaëre) to obtain the label EPV (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant), the certifications for the “Monuments Historiques” and the “Bâtiments de France”, and to become the suppliers to the Mobilier National, the ministries and Matignon.
