Galerie Léage, specialised in museum quality furniture and objets d’art from the 18th century, was founded in 1972 by François Léage and is now managed by his son, Guillaume. The gallery is recognised as one of the main galleries in its field, for the quality and taste of the pieces presented.
First installed for 20 years on rue de Lamenais, it is located since 1992 at 178 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris, near Boulevard Haussmann and the Musée Jacquemart André. At the corner with the rue de Berri and with a first floor of twelve viewing rooms, its reputation is also made on its discretion and the trust that its clients, collectors, renowned decorators and museum curators bring to it.
The gallery selects with taste and rigour furniture and objets d’art from the Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI period, having a royal, aristocratic origin or a pendant in a museum or a great collection. Guillaume Léage is part of the fifth generation of family antique dealers, specialist in the 18th century and perpetuates the values of excellence in the selection of furniture and objets d’art.
Today, the Galerie Léage is honored to see part of its collections in institutions such as the château de Versailles and Compiègne, the Musée du Louvre, the Jean-Paul Getty (Los Angeles), Legion of Honor (San Francisco), Metropolitan of Art (New York) museums, Museum of Fine arts (MFA, Boston) and continues the tradition of museum donors.
The Galerie Léage participated for 40 years in the Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris, through which it built its notoriety by creating each edition, among the most spectacular stands with 18th century woodwork decorations, and since 2019 perpetuates these values of excellence at the TEFAF in Maastricht, the largest event of antiques in the world. In parallel, and in order to offer a more contemporary vision of the collecting art, it multiplies the dialogue to encourage the new generations to combine the furniture of the 18th century with modern and contemporary art trough annual exhibitions in its walls.
