An innovator in the neoclassical style, Pierre Garnier began producing signature designs inspired by Greek architectural elements as early as 1761, while many of his contemporaries continued developing Rococo furniture. His visionary creations led to relationships with important clients, including the Marquis de Marigny, minister of arts under Louis XV and early proponent of the neoclassical style, who commissioned Garnier originals for his Parisian and countryside homes.
The functionality and beauty of tables à la tronchin are still celebrated today, and a comparable table currently resides in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
