Pierre Denizot was received as Master in 1740.
He mainly made L.XV or Transitional furniture, some of which were decorated with marquèteries with rigorously drawn geometrical motifs and carefully chosen veneers.
In view of the high quality of his production, he attracted in his clientele illustrious members of the High Nobility of France, such as the Count of Artois (Palais du Temple and Bagatelle), the Count of Provence and royal residences like Maison Laffitte or Saint Germain en Laye.
Today, some examples of his work can be found in the Cognacq-Jay and Jacquemart André Museums and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
