Gilding is an art which few people master. In fact, it is a trade in its own right and a technique that requires a lot of skill and finenesse. The process consists in applying a metallic leaf to the wood surface. The metal is usually gold, but silver and copper are also used. It is a method of decorating wood which can be used as an accent to highlight a shaped edge or a decorative carving. Entire pieces such as chairs, beds and mirrors can also be gilded. It can turn an ordinary looking piece of furniture into something highly refined and unique.
Atelier Pérusse carries on the art of gilding and takes great pride in offering his clientele this unique and most refined product. We use gold, silver or copper leaves to do gilding on all types of furniture, traditionnal or contemporary. However, our great strength lies in gilding fine period chairs.
