Colour, fundamental principle of the designer furniture collection Les Pieds sur la Table...

Colour and lacquer

Depth of colours, density of shades and smooth to touch, for all these qualities we chose lacquer as our preferred finish for all our furniture pieces Les Pieds Sur La Table. Lacquer is a noble surface made to last. 

Its application demands great care and patience to acheive multiple successive layers on the perfectly prepared base.
