Féau & Cie: 150 years of luxury woodwork

For the past 150 years, the decorating industry has sung the praises of Féau, a company that symbolises French excellence in luxury woodwork.

Féau & Cie: 150 years of luxury woodwork


Whatever you do, don’t mistake the brand for the real estate agency that goes by the same name! In the high-end decorating and interior architecture industries, this particular surname is well known because it dates all the way back to the mid-nineteenth century, when the family-owned company, which was founded by Charles Fournier and specialised in painting and gildwork at the time, opened a factory on Rue Laugier, a stone’s throw from the Arc de Triomphe. The brand went on to become the primary decor suppliers for the Third Republic.

A catalogue of styles that ranges from the Renaissance to the 1970s

Some of the most famous homes it has worked on include the Palais Rose, owned by Boni de Castellane and Anna Gould and located on Avenue Foch in Paris; the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat; and the town home of the steel magnate Henri Clay Frick, located on Fifth Avenue in New York City, now the Frick Collection Museum. Today, Guillaume Féau and his sister, Angélique, draw inspiration from these designs to satisfy the whims of their exacting clientele.

Delivering the exceptional to an international clientele

Louis XV-era panelling; libraries with entrances to secret rooms; designs made for Madame de Pompadour, Jeanne Lanvin, and Sao Schlumberger; and watercolours, plans, mock-ups, and engravings carrying on the legacy of long-ago castles will all be included in the brand’s upcoming book, which bears witness to the visions of owners of town homes and luxury estates, all of which are inspired by the history of decorative arts in France. Art aficionados, take note!
