FEEL THE HAND OF THE ARTIST
The methods are closely guarded, and were developed with former highly skilled craftsmen and restorers who have worked or still work for the largest antique dealers. Chipped or worn, monochrome or polychrome, with more sustained or fillet coated Venice, lacquers are made in the spirit of the eighteenth and require between six and eleven manipulations. Twenty standard colors can be combined together to infinity.
Research of color are also made on request. Two techniques of gilding are offered with more traditional gilding in tempera with gold leaf of 24 carat.
COMPLIANCE WITH STYLES
Regarding the tapestry and upholstery, three main criteria were considered: the comfort, beauty and fidelity in relation to different styles: the buxom Regency, rounded to the style of Louis XV, edges more sharp for the style of Louis XVI and curves strict styles XIX.
Two types of packing are available on the seats: a semi-packed with traditional springs, straps, coir and foam, and true to the old tapestry, with horsehair, beads and stitched by hand springs.
