Daniel is the name of a craftsman cabinet-maker, the father of the brand's founder. He settled his company in the late 70's, which thrived for over 40 years, serving a high-demanding clientele from the Lyon region. The company, named Meubles Daniel Delorme, specialized in custom made furniture and interior renovation projects.
He has always made a point of honour to offer genuine products, by choosing sustainable materials and favouring quality assembly and finishing. A heritage that the DANIEL brand claims. Our quest is to offer quality products that can live through generations.
Designer objects for everyday ceremony, to sublimate your moments of sharing.
What we love
In today’s digital age and with overconsumption being encouraged, DANIEL wants to offer “low tech” products that last a lifetime. Our collection, in response to trends such as fast fashion, is inspired by the return of the so-called “slow life”, which, like meditation, allows us to listen to our senses.
To offer products that can be handed down from one generation to the next, we strive to use as few materials as possible. Each piece is designed to facilitate the change of the parts that they are composed by, to encourage repair and thus extend their product life.
We use sustainable and non-polluting materials such as wood, metal, porcelain.
Sincerity, doing justice by noble materials and genuine designs. Harmony is what we look for in our interior, as well as the world around us. Pleasure, for a hedonistic approach in life.
An object becomes larger and more complex the more effort and time we invest in reducing it. In the process we approach the core of its essence.

Etienne Delorme | Founder & Creative Director
Growing up with an artisan as a father, Etienne Delorme developed an interest for beautiful products and meticulous design at an early age. But beyond form, it’s especially the work of the material that moves him.
Later on, he naturally found his first internship at Roche Bobois, before working for bootmaker Berluti and timepieces Bell&Ross. After an episode in a startup as Head of Product, the desire of starting his own business becomes too strong.
So he decides to start a new chapter to the story told by his elders, between tradition and modernity.
