Exceptional know-how

Jean-Luc Le Mounier's workshop has become a real laboratory of innovation and know-how

It produces exceptional pieces such as spectacular straw marquetry cabinets, engraved ebony consoles, enamel dressers or bronze tables…

His team masters in-house a multitude of techniques and rare materials as diverse as straw marquetry, precious wood veneer, bronze work, colored stainless steel assemblies. Not to mention the sand that Jean-Luc Le Mounier has been shaping for several years.

His workshop has perfected its experience over time thanks to the realization of hundreds of projects. These have led the team to take up challenges using very specific techniques such assembling shagreen skins, leather cladding furniture interiors, inlaying of mother-of-pearl or gypsum (selenite), lacquer or marble.

The artist does not set any limits. He does not forbid seeking other know-how in the best French workshops. He collaborates with master enamellers in Limoges, great Italian marblers but also with young talents with unique know-how : embroiderers, upholsterers, ceramicists.
