Maison Chartier

Furniture designer and creator

Luxury creations made in France


A family business
since 1996

The family owned company is based in town of Grézillé, located 30 km from Angers, in the Maine and Loire department in the West of France, currently a dynamic business area. Founded in 1996 under the name of cabinet maker Laurioux, the company was bought by Guy and Catherine Chartier in 2008. Their sons Florent and Julien joined the company in 2009 and in 2001, respectively; they then began running the company in 2019.

With 44 employees, 9 in admin and 35 in the workshop, Maison Chartier creates high-quality, luxury furniture. Each piece in our collection caters to specific dimensions, finishes or colours; in addition, we also make custom pieces.

In order to fulfil our clients’ requests, we work with solid wood or special veneers, as well as metals (eg steel, aluminium, inox), glass or leather. We also collaborate with other artisans to integrate their pieces in ceramic, brass, or textured lacquer.
