Tradition, heritage & creation have crafted the remarkable reputation of this family firm
Artcopi is a family run business, established in 1973 in Cholet, near Nantes. It specialises in hand crafting beautiful furniture, inspired by the major styles of French cabinet making – Directoire, Empire, Louis Philippe and Louis XV. Artcopi artisans select their own timber from healthy, mature tree stocks of cherry wood and solid oak from France. Stringent quality control processes ensure that every piece is exceptional, from conception to completion.
Each piece is cut, assembled, polished and waxed to give the lovely warm charm of old furniture. Pieces are manufactured in France by traditional cabinet making techniques like tenon and mortice, dovetailing and the use of wooden pegs, before being hand finished for authenticity and unique beauty.
Fine sanding reveals the timber’s natural beauty, water based, solvent-free stains highlight the grain, while gum lacquer added to natural beeswax creates a sheen that deepens in beauty with age and use.
