L' ébénisterie

Our story

Our story centres around a family and know-how that is second-to-none. It’s also about a passion for wood, which is at the heart of everything we are and do, the driver behind our quest for excellence.

The CEO of L’Ébénisterie, Richard Marro, has developed an impeccably professional, technically outstanding approach and turned it into second nature for the company. He remains just as fascinated with the practice of wood-working as when he used to marvel at Mr Rostagni and his father in the old workshops…

His team share this passion and enthusiasm – as can be clearly seen in how they join together to create painstakingly-finished pieces of furniture and fittings for top architects and interior designers.

L’Ébénisterie has been based in the hinterland of Nice for over forty years, providing top-quality, bespoke joinery services for high-end clients in France and further afield.


‘‘Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.’’


Our corporate values

Whether it’s raw timber, dense or light, white, red or ebony – wood will always be one of the finest natural materials known to man. Our love for wood is such that we work it with the utmost of respect, employing the highest standards of craftsmanship.
We not only saw, shape and carve wood, we also treat it with care, fit it perfectly and bring out its true beauty. Our unique range of expertise allows us to create joinery of superb quality.

Individuals united by a common love

Supervisors, joiners and cabinet-makers, master carvers, veneerers and fitters, most of whom are ‘Compagnons du Devoir’ (a craftsman’s guild), comprise this highly-skilled and experienced team. They share a work ethic that prizes a ‘job well done’ and value the traditions of our profession. As a result, they work wood with great care and accuracy to satisfy even the most demanding customers.
