Specialising in lacquer, Chinese lacquer and gilding on wood, the Atelier Cornevin works in the fields of restoration, copying and creation of furniture (furniture, screens, panels, various objects, etc., regardless of size) in France and abroad.

In 1979, after serving his apprenticeship and acquiring the family know-how, Guy Cornevin took over the workshop run by his father, Léon. In turn Guy has passed this expertise onto his son Cyril, who he now works closely with (and whose studio is located at 3 Rue des Closeaux – 28300 Mainvilliers – 01 44 70 00 18).


Whether polychrome lacquer, Canton lacquer (patterned gold leaf) or Coromandel lacquer (a technique consisting in engraving a Champlevé decor through the many layers of lacquer), the art of lacquer has lost none of its power and elegance. Indeed, although some products used today are no longer the same as in the past, the techniques employed by Guy Cornevin remain unchanged and will always be conducted in the greatest respect for tradition, preserving the style and period of the original object and obtaining perfect results.
