His specialty quickly became the reproduction of 18th century furniture, in particular Louis XV and Louis XVI styles. During the Universal Exhibitions of 1855, 1862 and 1867, he received a medal and increased his clientele. He sells furniture to the Empress Eugenie. Paul Sormani moved to 10 rue Charlot from 1867, where he enjoyed great success until his death in 1877. His wife and son Paul-Charles continued manufacturing under the name of "Veuve Sormani & fils". The Maison Sormani was rewarded again at the Universal Exhibition of 1878 and that of 1892, as well as at the colonial exhibition 1883. In 1914, the Maison Sormani joined forces with the Maison Thiebaud frères to become Thiebaud-Sormani. She exhibited under this name in 1925 at the international exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts. In 1934, the death of Paul-Charles Sormani led the house to close permanently. The Sormani house is known for having produced furniture but also objects of tabletteries such as jewelry boxes or liquor cellars. Delivery possible. https://www.antiquites-saintjean.fr
