The company’s know-how is the inheritance of a long tradition. Specialised in the restoration of lights for Historical Monuments, the team uses the techniques of its predecessors.

Its workers come from Ecole Boulle or Uzès craft college and are specialised in mounting bronze and in carving. With each new restoration project, they learn more. The company has been practising this family profession for three generations, which makes it possible to raise the teams’ awareness of the historical aspect and thus to be more attentive to their work. No one is allowed to ignore Art when it concerns items of cultural heritage.  Also specialised in making copies of old objects, the company can reproduce lights from period drawings.  The company also makes contemporary creations. Embroideries, crystal and rock crystal parquetry are linked to the work of a bronze smith and are characteristic of decorative arts. As for the anodised aluminium lamps that are part of our collections, they are copies of lamps created in the 1960s by the company’s founder, Henri MATHIEU.  All periods, from the 17th to the 21st century, are covered by three activities: restoration, reissues and creation. Today, Mathieu Lustrerie is a reference restorer and creator.
