Delisle Furniture making

Since 1895, Delisle has been creating exceptional bespoke lighting solutions as well as furniture and decorative objects. Thanks to its historic archives referencing over 4,000 models and 12,000 drawings dating back over 120 years, Delisle has been able to perpetuate French savoir-faire, harnessing its traditions and long-held expertise. The atelier also develops contemporary creations with designers including Jean-Michel Wilmotte, Christian Liaigre and Elliott Barnes and illustrious brands such as Lalique.


Each object is the fruit of an ensemble of skills specific to each artisan: from an architect or designer's drawing, a customer's request or the use of its historical archives, a piece comes to life. The majority of Delisle's creations are custom made. Expertise and attention to detail are transmitted from one generation to the next to keep the legacy alive. Today Jean, the fifth generation of Delisle's to run the family business, is perpetuating the tradition of the maison’s classic tailor-made products by bringing it into the 21st century.
