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.
