Our History

The traditional craft methods of work utilized by Noailhac Paris go back to Baroque times in France. However the beginning of this fine craft company itself began in 1956 by an expert upholsterer in Paris (“Monsieur Grana”) who trained a small team of craft workers to build finished chairs using the historical manual craft methods. He was later joined by Gilles Nouailhac in 1972 who then spearheaded the further development of the company’s workshops and the international expansion of the brand.

The Nouailhac ateliers in Villeneuve-le-roi, France

Near Paris in the village of Villeneuve-le-roi (the rural location of hunts for King Louis XV) is where Monsieur Grana first  established his workshops and Nouailhac has remained since.  It is the site of all of the craft trade work going into the fine finished Nouailhac furniture, whether chairs, armchairs, sofas or other incidental pieces.

Fine beech hardwoods are used from the Vosges mountains in northeastern France for all the furniture. These woods are brought to the Nouailhac ateliers along with all other components, including rich upholstery fabrics from the sister company Houlès Paris or other fabric suppliers. First the woods are aged naturally, then worked and assembled into the wonderful finished pieces you see.
