Iron craftsmen since 1880 in Moulins, in the Auvergne region, Pouenat Ferronnier moved towards interior decoration in the 1960’s, making lighting, furniture and decorative layouts in metal under the impetus of the fifth generation, Henri Pouenat, a graduate from the prestigious École nationale des arts décoratifs and student of famous Gilbert Poillerat. Acquired in 1995 by Jacques Rayet, the company extended its activities at the beginning of the 2000’s, with the crafting of furniture created by world-renowned designers.

The unique know-how of the company is based on the delicate working of metals like steel, stainless steel, brass, bronze, aluminum, copper and the integration of different materials like glass, wood, ceramics, stone and staff. This know-how is placed at the disposal of architects and interior designers for the creation of top of the range ornamental and layout projects as well as exclusive « Gallery » pieces.

Pouenat’s layouts in metal and ironwork concern both the interior and the exterior of building in either classical or contemporary style, while always striving for a unique harmonious and aesthetic quality. Every part, including furniture and lighting, is fabricated in the Pouenat workshop and has a unique structure, appearance and history.
