Revel, art and furniture

The crafts of furniture making have been developed in Revel since1889, when Alexander Monoury master cabinetmaker known for his expertise in marquetry moved to the town. Born in Versailles in 1837, he graduated from the House of Dubois, toymaker and purveyor to the court, and trained students who in turn handed his technical expertise to generations of artisans who give Revel the deserved title of "city of art and furniture."

 

At the museum of wood and marquetry, a thematic exhibition dedicated to wood, allows you to discover the close relationship between humans and this noble material, with all its varied properties.

 

The craftsmen and women of Revel exhibit their work in their stores and showrooms.

The majority of them belong to the "cabinet makers and creators of Revel" society.
