In the 1960s, designer Henri Pouenat revolutionized his family’s century old ferronier business, world-famous for crafting the most luxurious iron baniesters, balconies, gates and more for the grandest chateaux and residences of France and beyond. Under Henri Pouenat’s leadership, the brand began to focus on decoration, and the house produced light fittings and furniture for the Liner Le France, and a variety of pieces for the United Nations in Geneva and the Hôtel Concorde in Paris. Today, the firm works with steel, aluminum, stainless steel, copper, bronze, and brass and with these combines glass, wood, ceramics, stone or fabric. Pouenat’s work can be found in renowned hotels (the Plaza Athénée, the Hotels Meurice and Thoumieux), and luxury boutiques (like Balmain and Dior). Each piece made in the workshops is unique as far as its shape, appearance, function, and history are concerned.
