Philippe Poirié, the nephew of the joiner Noël Poirié (died 1753) was named master on October 23, 1765. He opened his business on the rue de Charenton in Paris, in the cabinetmakers quarter. He worked under the same shop sign as his uncle—“au Poirier”—until circa 1788.

His Louis XV-style chairs are of standard quality. Those in the Louis XVI style were very frequently marked by the transition style of the 1770s. He often used an oval back in his chairs.
