Ateliers Jouffre, championing and illustrating the upholsterer’s profession calls for constant attention to detail. Besides the perfection required for the finishing of drapes and furnishings, other more unexpected factors apply: working clothes in the company’s colors, immaculate delivery vans, specific covers to protect furniture and floors during work at the client’s address, the systematic ironing of drapes after installation – little touches that are appreciated by the most demanding clients. Awarded the French “Living Heritage Company” (EPV) label, Jouffre also aspires to be a hotbed of the finest artisan upholsterers. The company’s employees are trained in-house, supported, and encouraged. The upshot is success: to date, Joffre staff have earned three Best Apprentice of France awards and one Best Craftsman of France award.
