Gilles Tournillon specialises in the restoration of antique furniture.
The workshop possesses a rare know-how in the restoration of period furniture. It takes care of all the stages and distinguishes itself in the field by its specialty of excellence in the restoration of painted wood, its rare skills in gilding and complex operations. The workshop is distinguished by its expertise in the restoration of painted media, shared at this level with only two other workshops that jointly participate in the Mona Lisa conservation program. Finally, it provides complex interventions such as "trimming" at the level of the pictorial layer in damaged wooden media. Its clientele consists mainly of institutions (local authorities and national museums), private individuals and a few companies (temperature-controlled rooms).

The company has many references from prestigious museums such as The Louvre, The Petit Palais in Avignon, the Picasso Museum in Antibes, the Fabre Museum in Montpelier, the Museum of Fine Arts in Lyon; it has also done work for the cathedrals of Aix-en-Provence and Monaco.
