Paul Sormani (1817-1877) born in Venice, but working in Paris, he creates high-class furniture in the style of Napoleon III. He opened his own workshop in 1847 at 7 Cimetiere Saint-Nicolas. In 1854 the studio was moved to 114 Rue du Temple, and in 1867 to 10 Rue Charlot. After Sormani's death, the workshop continued to function under the direction of his wife and son, but the furniture was signed "Veuve Sormani & Fils". Products signed by Sormani have been repeatedly appreciated and awarded at world exhibitions.
