A long experience in restoring old woodwork
Based in Villeneuse-d'Ascq near Lille, we have more than 40 years of experience in interior decoration, antiques, furnishings and antique furniture. We have carried out the restoration of old woodwork on several occasions, for example, the restoration of woodwork from the Regency period of a Parisian private mansion where we have brightened up the woodwork which had darkened over the years. In addition to our activity as an antique dealer and decorator, we have created the Boiserie antique company to respond more specifically to requests concerning woodworking, such as the restoration of wooden furniture or the creation of reissued woodwork.
Restoration of a paneling in progress at the " Hospice Comtesse " in Lille
Thanks to the generosity and commitment of Rémy Motte, we can already discover the mantelpiece of the fireplace in its natural state. The side paneling and paneled paneling not yet visible in this room await other patrons. The floor will be restored as closely as possible to the fashions practiced in the 18th century in order to restore this space to its full brilliance.
When it has regained its original appearance, this " music room " will probably be dedicated to the presentation of the museum's rich collections that are still untapped and will offer a new space for visits to the public.
The overmantel of the fireplace presents a delicate bas-relief where are gathered scores, string instruments and wind instruments.
This so-called "rockery" woodwork is characterized by the fantasy of the rolled lines and the delicacy of its scrolls. This style is undoubtedly one of the most harmonious and imaginative creations of the decorative arts of 18th century Lille cabinetmaking.
The decoration of this room dialogues with other works in the museum such as certain pieces of furniture exhibited in the community or the 1724 facade adorning one side of the main courtyard.
