Documentation :

Jean Lapie, a cabinetmaker who passed his mastery in 1762, established his workshop-store on rue de Charenton and worked for merchants and upholsterers. His production was not very important but he brought diversity and fantasy to his work. His Louis XV and Louis XVI furniture is decorated with veneer, mahogany, rosewood, ebony and inlaid with flowers on a dark background, geometric designs, mosaics with tiles or lacquer and varnish in the Far Eastern style. The upholsterer Maugé, in the rue Saint-André-des-Arts, bought several works from him with articulated doors with book backs, including a curious secretary chest of drawers disguised as a library.
