Our Chapeau artisan collaborative, is a decorative platform now being produced at the Dune factory. Through old-world furniture techniques that have been passed down through generations, Eric Chapeau leads our craftsmen/women on a reinterpretation of classic specialty finishes such as gilding, eglomise, leafing, eggshell, parchment and mica.
Chapeau can duplicate ancient solid or inlaid wood veneer with finishes such as distressed, painted or French polish. Hand rubbed patina can be applied to bronze, brass and steel for custom hardware, or trim. Some other crafts include cast glass, applied stitched leather and wall upholstery.
Their distinctive handmade work can be commissioned for the restoration and reproduction of antiques as well as new bespoke furniture, light fixtures, cabinetry and wall paneling that we can design and install.
