POURNY, CHRISTOPHE

about author

"Christophe Pourny was born and raised in the village of Fayence, in the South of France. Growing up in his parents antique store gave Pourny a unique sense of history, and an appreciation for all things furniture. After graduating from University in Nice, he would move to Paris to apprentice with his uncle Pierre Madel. Madel's store of the same name was a destination on the Rue Jacob. Upon moving to NYC 20 years ago, Christophe began his career restoring fine antiques for celebrities and celebrated interior designers. In keeping with the old-world traditions they use daily, Christophe Pourny Studio created a collection of all natural wood and leather care products. The range of Tonics, Serums, Creams, and Waxes are mixed in small batches in Brooklyn, made from the finest ingredients. Available through the studio website or fine gift stores throughout the US, and in select stores in Japan.
The Furniture Bible took over two years to organize, write, photograph, and edit, and a lifetime of experience to create. "
