PASSIONNATE ABOUT DESIGN, PRETTY THINGS, CRAFTING AND ALSO CURIOUS ABOUT MATERIALS
Florent the founder was looking for legs to create a coffee table and he felt in love with steel.
On his spare time, he continue making legs and people were excited about them and to propose them on market places of design. Listening, sharing with fans of "DIY, Do it yourself" and designers only confirm to Florent that, design products, craftsmanship and materials are highly sought after.
THIS IS IT, HE HAD TO JUMP INTO HIS PASSION AND MAKE IT A REALITY
He went back to school and develop his steel skills. Thanks to his strong expertise, he launched Fabrique des Pieds. The first legs made in Fabrique des Pieds, were shipped to a trendy parisien loft. Since then, more than 20 000 legs arrived in houses and lofts all over the world.

THE WORKSHOP AND ITS SHOWROOM
Authenticity is a key value of La Fabrique. The company openned part of its workshop based in Lille (France) to the public: a place where customers and passionnates about DIY can meet and see legs being made in front of them ! A place where the team creates the legs of the Future !
La Fabrique has always done things differently : offer high end quality hand made products at an affordable price, create ongoing new legs collections with a minimum lead time and a consistent quality.
Florent, the founder
« In 2014, I was looking for legs to create a coffee table and I wasn’t able to find what I was looking for. At this time, table legs were just brushed aluminium tubes, available in DIY superstores. I wanted to buy high end quality legs locally made at an affordable price.
Since I am kid, I always like designing and creating "nice things" : painting, furnitures... growing in the countryside, my roots are deeply in the ground and my head is in the sky. Preserve the planet, be smart when it comes to use Earth ressources, buy quality products have always motivated me when it comes to work.
For almost 8 years, I’ve consulted, managed and trained construction project teams in their strategy to build with a less impact on the environment. After this period, I really wanted to do "something with my hands" get back to my roots of creating with my hands. I went back to school to learn steel job and improve my expertise. And then, it was just clear, it was time to launch Fabrique des Pieds. I believe in challenge especially challenging codes and traditional trends. I believe in people and listening to their needs and I want to offer what France has the best. »

« ALL THE FEET ARE MADE FROM OUR WORKSHOP IN NORTHERN FRANCE, IN ILLIES. »
La Fabrique would be nothing without her workshop and the precious hands that create different feet every day. The workshop is attached to the showroom and offices. It is from this promiscuity between these 3 spaces that new collections of feet are born as regularly as the teams exchange. La Fabrique has complete control over the manufacturing of the feet because all the operations are carried out in its workshop : cutting, folding, welding, grinding, degreasing, painting and setting in furnace. La Fabrique ensures quality and can constantly improve to better meet the needs of its customers.
