GALERIE LEAGE specializes in 18th-century furniture and art objects. Founded in 1972, it first opened on rue de Lamenais, before moving to rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in 1992. Its discreet first floor leads to a dozen salons upstairs, hidden from view by passers-by, where an extensive collection awaits visitors. With royal or aristocratic origins, an equivalent in a museum or large private collection, these objects perpetuate the values of excellence and exceptional craftsmanship that distinguish the decorative arts of the 18th century.
As a result, the gallery has won the trust of numerous collectors from all over the world, renowned decorators, major companies and museums.
Guillaume Léage has been running the gallery for almost ten years. Heir to five generations of antique dealers, he promotes a modern and demanding vision of the 18th century and its finest craftsmen, while perpetuating the gallery’s own values of excellence.
He has been vice-president of the Syndicat National des Antiquaires for two years now. He is also a member of the organizing committee of Fine Arts Paris – La Biennale (FAB), an international fair that brings together around a hundred galleries from a wide range of disciplines, with collections of outstanding quality.
For a number of years now, Guillaume Léage has also been president of the Nocturne Rive Droite, an event that brings together galleries from the Faubourg Saint-Honoré district on a single evening in June.
