Young Patrons Circle Paris: Atelier Monceau Private Visit

Thursday, January 24, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Event Navigation

The Co-Chairmen of the Young Patrons Circle Paris, Luis de Lencquesaing, Béryl Moizard, Eric Pellerin de Turckheim and Victoire de Vaugelas invite you to discover the restoration work of the Atelier Monceau.

The Atelier Monceau is a fine furniture restoration workshop that was set up in 2009 as the result of an association between Hardouin Burrus and Rémi Domblides, two cabinet-makers, passionate about fine furniture. The founding partners both acquired their respective experience in the most prestigious Parisian restoration workshops. Their workshop now counts seven highly qualified craftsmen whose very minute and demanding work can be summed up in three words: dexterity, know-how and patience.

The Atelier Monceau works for a great number of private collectors, antique dealers, museums and embassies. They specialize in restoring fine art and furniture pieces from the 16th to the 20th century, each particular period requiring a specific and extensive knowledge of the techniques and materials used at the time. A combination of theoretical knowledge and technical skill is what allows them to carefully and respectfully work on a great variety of pieces such as antique chests, cabinets, seats, wall clocks, etc. We will discover their skills and some pieces being restored. The craftsmen will share the peculiarities and techniques of restoration specific to each period of history.

The visit will be followed by the traditional glass of Henriot champagne in order to celebrate the New Year and chat with our guests.
