Jean Nadal is the oldest of a family of Parisian carpenters. The date of obtaining his master's degree is unknown. It was established rue de Clery and according to some sources, it is believed that he was still active in the last years of the reign of Louis XV.
This master has left his stamp on many pieces that are related to the full development of the Louis XV style.
Many seats, of good quality and soberly adorned with leaves and rock, bear his stamp.
Denis Julienne received master in 1775, was undoubtedly related to another Julian denys who had been upholsterer of Louis XIV and the Duke of Burgundy in the early eighteenth century. He was a supplier to the Marquis de Paulmy, governor of the Arsenal, and, through the Presle brothers, upholsterers in vogue, competed in the furnishing of the Marquis de Girardin. His house still existed in 1805. He owes him pleasant productions on which appears his stamp, elegant Louis XVI seats, soberly decorated with moldings and some carved motifs.
Sculptors Nicolas Poiron and a certain Haguette have sometimes countersigned his works.
