We are two former graduates of the Ecole Boulle, one in cabinetmaking, the other in furniture design.

LO’TALHIER means “the workshop” in Occitan and is pronounced “lou talié”. This name designating “a place where we work by hand” refers both to the linguistic and cultural heritage of our region and to craftsmanship.
Indeed, specialize in creating, custom manufacturing and installation of furniture and carpentry products in wood and derivatives, our workshop has been able to preserve traditional techniques and know-how for almost 20 years.

The choice of wood

We have chosen solid wood and its derivatives for all our creations. A sustainable resource, wood is naturally insulating. In carpentry, it resists temperature variations and perfectly meets new thermal regulations, with standards and labels that guarantee its energy efficiency.

A material of yesterday, wood seems essential to us today for a harmonious renovation of heritage. With R.G.E. which respects their style, country house or mansion immediately improve their comfort by several degrees, while regaining their personality.

In cabinetmaking, the durability of wood is a matter of course. Crossing the ages, wood takes on a delicate patina on antique furniture, whether stylish or rustic. Authentic and reassuring witness to one or more lives, poles apart from “disposable” and planned obsolescence, wooden furniture responds with simplicity to the environmental concerns of our time.

We use wood from, preferably, regional or french forests: hardwood (oak, chestnut, cherry, etc.) and softwood, mainly larch and Douglas fir.

Our approach

Prior to the establishment of an estimate, the meeting on your site is essential because it allows us to understand and precisely define your needs.

Depending on your project, a research phase may be necessary. It will eventually give rise to a presentation of sketches or samples of materials, moldings and/or finishes.
The estimate comes when we have specified with you all the components of the project.

Our commitments:

  • To listen to you
  • Integrate the project into your habitat
  • Manufacture to your measurements
  • Respect your budget

We operate mainly in the south of Haute-Vienne and Corrèze and, occasionally, with professional and private customers throughout France.
As craftsmen registered with the Chamber of Trades, all of our creations are guaranteed.
