Paul Sormani (1817-1877), was a Parisian ébénist of fine ‘meubles de luxe’. His work was described in the catalogue of the 1867 Exposition Universelle as: ‘toute sa production révèle une qualité d’exécution de tout premier ordre’ (all of his production reveals a quality of execution all of the first order’)

Indeed, this was true. Paul Sormani’s inspiration for the furniture he produced was based firmly in the finest 18th-century models. Taking particular reference from the reign of Louis XVI and Neo-Classicism. Notably, his work is of such a level of perfection that he exceeded the furniture of the 18th-century masters.

He is perhaps the best known and most revered Parisian ébénist of the late 19th century.
