And now a bit of history. History in the large meaning of the word. You can help me to make this page. You could write me about the origin of the peinted furniture, or some anecdotes about painted furniture or objects.


The “fustier” painters


The “fustier” painters: if you consult a dictionary, you will notice that it is not explained. It is an old term that comes from “fustet” (explained in some dictionaries), and that means an arbust. In the past when a child was born, a tree was planted, called a “fustet”. And when the child got married, the tree was cut down to make a wedding cupboard. The roots were also used to paint the wood. The painter or artist who painted the item was called a “fustier”.
