Etienne Meunier –
Seat carpenter. Paris. He is the most famous carpenter of this name. He practiced in the rue de Cléry towards the middle of the eighteenth century. We owe him works of excellent quality. Étienne Meunier was the first and certainly the most famous of a dynasty of Parisian carpenters. His life is quite unknown. Towards the middle of the 18th century, he officiated in rue de Cléry and worked for fashionable merchants such as Pierre Migeon and Étienne Igou. All Louis XV seats, bearing his stamp, are of very good quality. He produced bergères, armchairs in various shapes, light and elegant, chairs with sober and well studied lines, a large number of daybeds, but the office armchair appears to be his great specialty. Most of these armchairs are classic, with circular seats covered in leather or upholstered in cane, whose belt rests on a foot located in front. Étienne Meunier was probably one of the creators of this model. The decoration is discreet and the sculptures, of great finesse but scarce and not very varied, were often limited to a flower framed by a few leaves. His workshop, still mentioned in 1770, was perhaps kept by a widow until the end of the reign of Louis XV. MUSEUMS
