Founded in 1986, the Atelier Denis Guérin specialises in restoring straw and cane chairs.
Keen to preserve an authentic approach and perpetuate French tradition, the work techniques and skills remain identical to those performed in times gone by.
With respect for the recovering process and the choice of the raw materials, the fan or sunburst caning restorations make it an establishment in which know-how reigns supreme. Rye growing and expertise in exclusive straw dyeing methods allow the company to offer original polychromes, embellishing antique chair frames, creating – as the inspiration takes them, at the request of individuals or professionals – exceptionally refined chairs, "a chair on which your gaze first comes to rest”.
The workshop passes on its know-how, offering training sessions since 1988.
