When Sonja, a Belgian interior decorator and Joel, Catalan and a master carpenter met, they were working on restoration projects for listed buildings in the Eastern Pyrenees. From this professional encounter, which augured a sentimental one, Les Amandiers was born. Their first showroom, on the road to Le Muy in 2007, transferred in 2010 to the entrance of Sainte-Maxime. During this time they envisioned, designed and developed a collection of beautiful indoor and outdoor furniture. Starting from high quality raw materials they conceive contemporary furniture in French oak for the interior and in Red cedar or Padouk for the outdoors.
Following Joel’s long illness and death in May 2017, it marked the end of one era for Les Amandiers, but the beginning of another. Sonja, along with her team embarked on new projects including the purchase of a village house in Grimaud, and made it another showroom for the spirit of Les Amandiers Home.
Les Amandiers Home offer a unique custom service from their workshops in Sainte-Maxime and Saint-Etienne. A team of 12 carpenters put their skills to work every day to carry out the various furniture orders made in France and abroad. It is in the purest tradition of ancestral craftsmanship that the workshop team works to produce a truly high quality collection. In their first monograph, Les Amandiers Home show an overview of their high-end projects in the Var countryside, in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, in the French Alps and abroad.
