Martin Jullien, a furniture joiner, was named master in Paris on July 23, 1770 and became a deputy or councillor of his guild. He lived on the rue des Petits-Carreaux for about 10 years, then moved to the boulevard Poissonnière where he remained until the Directoire. The “Petites Affiches” of August 21, 1781 announced the sale of “beautiful wood armchairs, chairs and benches, in walnut and beech, executed after the latest model” by this manufacturer. His works often imitated, but in a simpler fashion, certain of Jacob’s seats.
