A local establishment, far from prying eyes
Maison Moissonnier, a unique style. Bourg-en-Bresse.
Maison Moissonnier is keeping this precious know-how alive, while adding a touch of modernity.
The facades on Avenue Maginot don’t particularly stand out. They blend in with the other buildings throughout the town. You’re in for some unexpected surprises! Because this is where you’ll find the heart and soul of the company, this is really where the daring, yet traditional pieces of furniture are created thanks to some rare know-how, including marquetry, sculpture, patina, and gold leafing. You might begin to see the outlines of surprising and unique collections, you may see for example an 18th century piece of furniture with a hot pink finish! And so many other one-of-a-kind creations, including dressers, sideboards, tables, console tables, chairs, anything that is involved in interior decoration really.
Even today, this brand still strives to use French trees for building their furniture. Imagine how proud the founder, Emile Moissonnier, would be to see that his company now bears the ‘Living Heritage Company’ label and works with some of the greatest establishments across the globe.
Occasionally, the company opens its workshop to the public. A timeless, rare moment, much like their creations. Don’t hesitate to check the calendar to see if an open day is coming up. Places are extremely limited.
