The company was founded in 1850 and won many gold medals in Lyon. One of the partners, Vial, was president of the group of furniture dealers. It was located at 42-44 cours de la Liberté in Lyon. It designs a lot of furniture, from the Gothic to the Louis XVI style, but from 1920, contemporary furniture too. The creations are installed in many showrooms where the décor changes every week in show rooms, with dining rooms, studies and bedrooms. Henri Bonjour uses many light species, as burr ash and walnut. On one of his ads, very typical of this time, they can see a woman with tomboy hair, wearing a chic negligee, whispering in the ear of a man in a smoking jacket like in a silent film. Fully assuming its role as a designer, Henri Bonjour was also involved in upholstery, draperies, and proposed artwork.
