Pierre IV Migeon, who was formerly called Pierre II Migeon prior to recent research, was born into a family dynasty of Parisian ébénistes on August 13, 1696. When Pierre IV Migeon came into his own as an ébéniste, his workshop became one of the most popular within eighteenth century Parisian society. His record book survives showing that he was patronized by high-ranking government officials, foreign princes, French aristocracy, and visiting ambassadors. He was also a marchand as well as a cabinet-maker and was extremely influential on the taste of his clients.
Migeon IV focused on tulipwood parquetery, as seen on the present bureau, and he particularly appreciated the contrast of color when different pieces of woods were juxtaposed.
