Balcaen is a unique French company, specialized in copying high quality furniture of French style from the 18th century. Since 1972, the Maison Balcaen, under the impulsion of founder Claude Balcaen, has been perpetuating the tradition in the manufacturing of its furniture of style.

The Maison Balcaen has always made the choice of quality. Every furniture is made in France by French craftsmen, replicating exactly the 18th century “savoir-faire”. All the woodcarving is done manually to assure the incomparable quality and uniqueness of each piece. The company has also specialized in 22-carat gold leaf gilding and patinas.


Balcaen works for the French State and has been the supplier to the French Senate, the French National Assembly as well as many embassies for more than 20 years.

Decorators, architects, luxury hotels and palaces around the world choose Balcaen because of their professionalism and savoir-faire: Hôtel de Crillon, Hôtel Meurice, Hôtel George V, Le Château de Versailles, the King palace of Morocco, among others.

In addition, the Maison Balcaen serves top of range customers worldwide (e.g. Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, United-States, Australia, England, Japan, Korea) in the tradition of French “savoir-faire”.


Balcaen offers around 150 objects, mainly armchairs, chairs and sofas. All of the Balcaen’s furniture is made in France: chairs, armchairs, loveseats and sofas in Louis XIV, Louis XV, Louis XVI, Régence and Empire style.
