The artisan

Daniel Delorme artisan ébéniste Lyon France
Daniel is the name of a craftsman cabinetmaker, the father of the brand's founder. He established his company in the late 70's, which thrived for over 40 years, serving a demanding clientele from the Lyon region. The company, named Meubles Daniel Delorme, specialised in custom-made furniture and interior renovation projects.

Offering authentic products, by choosing sustainable materials and favouring artisan assembly and finishing, has always been a point of honour. 

A heritage that the DANIEL brand claims. Our quest is to offer quality products that can live through generations.

What we love

In today’s digital age and with overconsumption being encouraged, DANIEL wants to offer “low tech” products that last a lifetime. Our collection, in response to trends such as fast fashion, is inspired by the return of the so-called “slow life”, which, like meditation, allows us to listen to our senses.

To offer products that can be handed down from one generation to the next, we strive to use as few materials as possible. Each piece is designed to facilitate the change of the parts that they are composed by, to encourage repair and thus extend their product life.

We use sustainable and non-polluting materials such as wood, metal and porcelain.

Our values

Sincerity, doing justice by noble materials and genuine designs.

Harmony is what we look for in our interior, as well as the world around us.

Pleasure, for a hedonistic approach in life.

The team

Etienne Delorme | Founder & Creative Director

Growing up with an artisan as a father, Etienne Delorme developed an interest for beautiful products and meticulous design at an early age. But beyond form, it’s especially the work of the material that moves him.

Later on, he naturally found his first internship at Roche Bobois, before working for bootmaker Berluti and for timepiece creators Bell&Ross. After serving as Head of Product at a startup, he was inspired to start his own business. 

So he's decided to start a new chapter in harmony with the story told by his elders, between tradition and modernity.
