Monts et Merveilles is located in the heart of the French Alps, a few minutes from the slopes of Serre Chevalier ski resort and the town of Briançon. The brand-new 1000 m2 building was inaugurated in 2022 and enables projects of all sizes, hosting the fabrication Workshop, interior-architecture Studio and designer furniture Boutique.
Monts et Merveilles was set up in 2012 by Clément Goudet, a cabinet-maker trained by the prestigious Compagnons du Devoir. Today, Monts et Merveilles provides its local, national and international clients with custom projects for their interiors, mixing raw timber and unique contemporary furniture. The interior design projects are ready-to-use thanks to the interior architecture Studio and the Boutique, which complete the cabinet-making. As a Compagnon cabinet-maker, Clément Goudet has gained experience in France, in the United States and in Australia, and has also worked on design and project-conception for an Architect’s office in Paris. He then decided to set up his own workshop in a stunning setting, to design, create and build unique pieces for local chalets but also city apartments.
Exceptional interiors, combining the comfort of wood with modern and functional furniture, with minimalist design
With a team of interior architects and Compagnon wood-workers trained in France and abroad, Monts et Merveilles now specializes in project management, providing clients with the conception of their interior from the first outlines to ready-to-use delivery, interior decoration included. What’s more, Monts & Merveilles works in close collaboration with craftsmen from all trades.
Monts & Merveilles’s work is characterized by close attention to detail, as well as the quality and variety of materials used – raw timber, textured precious wood veneer, innovative materials, lacquer, varnish, textile, composite materials – which bring high-end aesthetics and standards, while retaining a certain simplicity. All livened up with designer furniture and subtly-picked elements of interior decoration.
Each project managed by Monts & Merveilles, whether for a mountain chalet or city apartment, assures an exceptional interior, combining the comfort of wood with modern and functional furniture with minimalist design.
The Workshop, Studio and Boutique are all under the same roof, so that the ideas that arise from the sketches and 3Ds in the Studio are brought to life in the Workshop, in a continuity that takes on its full meaning. The offices are part of the showroom so that clients can easily picture their future bespoke interior down to the smallest detail!
Our dedicated team of ten craftsmen is made up mostly of highly qualified Compagnons du Devoir woodworkers and cabinet-makers, who bring to life projects designed by the Studio located on the upper-floor, and install the custom designed fitted furniture in the client’s homes with great professionalism.
The Design Office works closely with the production Workshop to design and conceive the pieces of furniture and wood elements imagined by the Studio.
The complete design projects for both fitted interiors and furniture elements are handled by the interior architects of the Monts et Merveilles Studio. In the large « chalet-like » open-space, everything is set up so that clients can picture themselves in their future interior: choice of furniture, lighting, paint colours, mirrors, curtains, bed-linen… nothing is left to chance by our passionate team of interior architects. From sketches to unbelievably realistic 3D photos including inspiring mood-boards, the choices of materials and interior decoration elements are carefully selected so that projects can be delivered ready-to-use.
To complete the furniture created and produced by the Workshop, the Monts et Merveilles Boutique offers a large choice of designer furniture: sofas, arm-chairs but also interior decoration elements to add to the final project, which clients can choose with the help of the Boutique’s interior architects. Choosing cloth for madeto- measure curtains in collaboration with a sewing workshop, sofas, arm-chairs, chairs, lightings, bed-linen, mirrors… The designers with which the Boutique works are selected for their exclusive and high-end products: Living Divani, Kristalia, Freifrau, Tribù, ClassiCon, Cassina for example for furniture; DCW, Wever&Ducre, Bomma, Karman or Quasar for lighting.
