A LONG AND INSPIRING FAMILY HISTORY
Maison James partakes of and cultivates a profound commitment to excellence, handed down from father to son since 1840.
It was just a stone’s throw from Mont Saint Michel, in the tiny village of Saint Laurent de Cuves, that Antonin James founded his cabinet-making workshop.
At this point, he was far from imagining that, two centuries later, pieces “made by James” would be sought after all over the world.
FROM CRAFT WORKSHOP TO MAJOR BUSINESS
Rémi James, grandson of the founder, took over the family workshop and, whilst upholding the family tradition, developed it into a full-scale business producing original contemporary furniture.
This period also marks the emergence of the James Group and its expansion into high-end interior design.
