Léa Pack, Cabinet-maker & Designer


I have always wanted to do a job about which I was passionate; a year before the baccalaureate I decided to study at a school of cabinet-making in the Sarthe with the idea of entering an artistic and manual world. I managed to pass the CAP (Certificat d’Aptitude Professionelle) exam in cabinet-making and the BEP (Brevet d’Etudes Professionnelles) in joinery-layout in a single year. Pleased with how with my studies were going, I went on to do a further two years in Thiviers where I was awarded the BMA (Brevet des Métiers d’Art) in cabinet-making. I then worked for three years in a joinery company in order to save the money to set up my own workshop and eventually was sufficiently equipped to be able to create my own business in October 2013.


A unique design.
Out of love for my job and a taste for designing, I only make contemporary, high-quality pieces. Each piece has been imagined, drawn and made with a constant eye to originality, technical perfection and visual harmony.
I want to bring a new image to cabinet-making whilst preserving traditional techniques. Cabinet-making involves a variety of skills such as sculpting, turning and marquetry using different techniques and a variety of materials. One of the original aspects of my work is the use of photos which I blend into table tops or the facade of a cupboard like a fingerprint. Each piece is signed and numbered and never produced in a series larger than ten.


My work has to be elegant and harmonious. My creations are made using local woods and precious species such palissander, ebony and rosewood. I also introduce other elements into my work such as leather, metal, glass, bone, mother-of-pearl or more modern materials like resin or textiles.
Using unusual materials in my pieces is fascinating but requires a lot of research in terms of knowing how to work with these elements and how to integrate them into the wood. Finally, I use macro photography, generally of images of nature in colour or black and white, printed on metal plaques for optimal quality and durability.
