Labelled "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant" (Company of Living Heritage) by the Ministry of Cultural Affairs, Régis Mathieu's company opened its Museum of Chandeliers on the same site as its production area. Established in a former ochre factory, the building has kept its ochre-coloured walls and large spaces in which to work and hang prestigious chandeliers.

Visitors can admire a panorama of decorative arts through a collection of more than 200 lights. You'll be plunged into the wonder of lights from the 15th to the 21st centuries through the collection of originals, replicas and other items.

Every year, vintage cars and rare lights are brought together in an exhibition. The technical nature and beauty of lines are evident in these dazzling collections!

The company achieved recognition for its works for the National Assembly; the Opéra Garnier in Paris, the Hall of Mirrors at the Château de Versailles, Philadephia Opera, châteaux, and more across the world.
Twenty art companions are working towards the restoration and creation of luminous pieces that are highly technical and require a jeweller's know-how.
