L'atelier Arago

Philippe Gally

Tapestry Decorator

Rigour, experience, perfection, respect for traditions.

Master upholsterer, Master craftsman.

Graduated since 2001 (CAP upholsterer of furniture Decazeville Aveyron), I worked for 2 years in several workshops in Toulouse to perfect my knowledge (Workshops of Niboul, Mr Saint Gelis Master upholsterer). Then in 2003 I went to New Zealand to work for an upholsterer in Wellington (The Living Room) where I learned other more contemporary techniques.

Back in France, I created the Arago workshop in Thuir (12, rue Arago) in 2005. This nice workshop won me a Rotary Club prize in 2006 (Business Creator Award). For more than 10 years I was able to work on many exceptional projects (Château de Valmy, Villa Pallada, Bhyrr cellars etc) and thus consolidate my know-how and receive recognition from the professional world.

In 2016, I obtained the titles of Master Tapestry Craftsman and Master Craftsman of Art awarded by my fathers. I have thus been able to train apprentices and trainees (especially journeymen). I then created a workshop Boutique in Perpignan (2016-2019) avenue Julien Panchot (Perpignan), where’ I have been recruited since 2018 by the national education system to teach saddlery at the Rosa Luxembourg high school in Canet en Roussillon.

The company has finally moved to a more intimate workshop in 2019 at 4, rue des Troubadours in Perpignan where’ I welcome you from Monday to Friday by appointment. At the same time, I also work as a teacher.
