Artisanal expertise since 1840

Founded in Auvergne, France, in 1840 by Nicolas Baguès, the company originally specialized in the creation of liturgical bronzes. Thanks to Baguès’ expansion into bronze lighting and the popularization of electricity, the business quickly found success. At the turn of the century, their chandeliers captured international interest, and soon Baguès began exporting to London, New York, Rome, Brussels, and Cairo. Along with a major expansion in 1920, the company introduced to the world their now signature collections of finely crafted iron, gilt and crystal chandeliers and wall sconces Parrots & Foliage.

Baguès became part of Ateliers de France, a dynamic group embodying French excellence.

Baguès has built its reputation on the quality of its craftsmanship. In the workshop located in Normandy, bronze and iron are shaped using traditional techniques of chiseling, fine ironwork, high precision welding and fitting. Gold or silver leaf, patina or setting of bohemian or rock crystals… the realization requires a considerable amount of time to be done by hand!
To Baguès,
the greatest pleasure is the satisfaction of a job well done.
