At Jouffre, an understanding of art history is melded with respect for lines and proportions. Each upholsterer possesses equal mastery of traditional and contemporary techniques, and treats sofas and chairs with the utmost care. Whether restoring a period chair or finishing a contemporary design, each detail is preciously highlighted, with comfort that is ever more advanced, subtle, and resistant and, at all times, wholly in keeping with the sketch supplied by the interior designer or product designer.

Window Treatment

Jouffre’s upholsterers (seamstresses and quilters) master to perfection the art of fine handicraft, both traditional and contemporary. Whether a drape, a curtain, a blind, a bedspread or simply a cushion; an application of trim, some embroidery or a subtle play of pleats, each execution and each detail is designed with the greatest of care.

The art of stretched fabric, widespread from the Middle Ages to the eighteenth century, is enjoying a revival. Its thermal and acoustic properties are today appreciated and sought after by the finest interior designers. Jouffre has thus acquired advanced expertise in this area, so that they may transform any room – traditional or contemporary – into a haven of peace where elegance is blended with the calm and subdued atmosphere that one expects.
