Located to the north of Paris since 1990, the Atelier Marcu has developed a loyal clientele of collectors who entrust it with the restoration of mostly marquetried and printed furniture, the 18th century being the workshop’s favourite period.

Furniture or seating in mahogany, giltwood, marquetried, carved, French-polished or waxed, the firm is in a position to carry out all manner of restoration work. It attaches the utmost importance to the reversibility of its restorations, and brings into play technical, chemical, artistic and historical expertise. Employing traditional techniques, the Atelier Marcu uses only animal glues made from bone, and makes its own varnishes and waxes. In order to ensure work of the highest quality, specialist tasks are entrusted to gainiers (upholsterers), bronzesmiths and wood gilders. For each job, a restoration file is produced. The workshop also carries out regular work for antique dealers and interior decorators.
