Third generation upholsterer
Following in the footsteps of his grandmother Amélie and of his father Jacques, Rémy Brazet is now at the helm the family studio. The three years he has spent studying at the École du Louvre have given him a solid knowledge of art history which proves particularly useful when he is called upon to work for major French institutions (such as the Castles of Compiègne, Fontainebleau, Malmaison or Versailles) as well as American museums (Cleveland, J. Paul Getty, and Newport Minneapolis). During his work for the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, he designed a new removable support frame system for preserving ancient wood during restoration. That system is still used today worldwide. In 1993, he was one of the five founders of the Grands Ateliers de France association, which he chaired from 2000 to 2004. Today, he focuses on preserving ancestral techniques and on using them to satisfy the most demanding clients.
