Moissonnier Brings France to Vancouver

Moissonnier Brings France to Vancouver

This weekend, take a break from the seawall and venture into Yaletown to visit Moissonnier. Since 1885, the French master cabinetmaker has been at the forefront of traditional style married with an avant-garde aesthetic. Owned by fourth-generation scions of founder Émile Moissonnier, the family enterprise and its handmade furnishings have been recognized by the French government as a part of France’s “living heritage.”

It is unimaginable in 1885, Émile Moissonnier could have imagined that the woodworking shop he had created in his garden would exist today.

That his efforts would give birth to a lineage of artisan cabinetmakers who would carry the tradition of his great talents forward.  These traditions would become known as the three hallmarks of the collection Moissonnier: the art of the painting, sculpture and the manufacturing of the French Cabinet.
