“It gives new life to witnesses of the past.
It seeks out and finds rarity, dreams.
It conserves and restores history and past eras.
It preserves and uses as models that unique heritage,
those works of art, those old objects, those noble materials.
The old travels across time and the world.
A new life, a new place, to host the passion for those stone
or wooden chimneys, those floors of a thousand charms,
those garden ornaments, those decorative objects,
those remakes or those old models.”
Magnificent Louis XIV Stone Sphinxes
Louis XVI Marble Fireplace
