A lineage of greatness that has no equal
One does not become a master in an art overnight. It is something that has to be seeped into an individual’s blood, heart and consciousness over a considerable period of time. Being brought up in a family who only knew one thing, and that was the art of wood, Vincent Coignet absorbed, learned and over time mastered the science, the techniques and above all the passion to create stunning pieces of work.
This dedication and tireless pursuit of perfection can not be imitated nor manufactured anywhere else.
Jean Coignet starts his journey in France as Parquetry Master working on luxury projects across the world from Japan to the United States and Russia. He fell in love with wood and dedicated his working life to the artistry of hardwood with a well-known specialty in restoration.
Pierre, Jean’s brother joins.
Together they develop their company, educate and train their employees to excellence and position their business on the high-end segment.
Vincent, Pierre’s son, aged 16 years old, joins the company. Under the leadership of his father Vincent learns and works on many projects with his father. Coached by his father Vincent learns all the techniques regarding wood selection, restoration, fitting and maintenance.
After 10 years of experience, Vincent takes over from his father and expands the business across the world, working for prestigious and luxury brands as well as private projects in France and across the world for French companies.
Based on his success, Vincent moves to London and expands his business from the United Kingdom. Florian, Vincent’s brother, takes over the French market and Vincent focuses on the English market.
Vincent opens L’origine, a showroom in London dedicated to wood floor and unique wood furniture for individual’s home projects and companies.
