Lison de Caunes

Straw marquetry: a legacy

Lison de Caunes studied at Union centrale des Arts décoratifs in Paris. She then decided to perpetuate her grandfather Andre Groult’s tradition. She started working with straw marquetry in the 1970s and quickly became a specialist. She spent years restoring antiques and Art Deco furniture. Today, she dedicates her craft to creating made to order furniture, wall panels or objects for interior designers and decorators. In 2015 she launched Lison de Caunes Création, her own design line. Over the years she has curated several exhibitions. She also published books on straw marquetry.
