Since its founding in 1850, Chevillard has carried out two activities: the production and restoration of bronze and brass light fittings and decorative elements, and the production and restoration of religious articles. The firm mainly produces high-class lamps, chandeliers, picture lighting, tables and display cases. Chevillard develops new ranges by drawing inspiration from its old chandelier, lighting and religious object designs, created and conserved for over a century. It carries on traditional production processes such as turning on a metal-turning lathe, decoration by knurling, manual spinning, chasing, and bronze mounting. The firm uses a rare collection of spinning tools and screw presses in its production. Chevillard has restored a great many listed pieces and pieces housed in museums, including the Musée d?Orsay and Panthéon. It mostly undertakes specific works to order. However, some of its products are marketed in France and overseas through a network of luxury boutiques specialising in decorations.
