The eldest of Pierre Hache's three cabinetmaker sons, Jean-François is the most famous of the dynasty. He began to work with his father, settled in Place Claveyson in Grenoble, then while continuing their collaboration, he set up on his own in 1754 before taking over the paternal workshop on his own in 1770. He quickly obtained great notoriety and for more thirty years, he operates many workshops and stores in Grenoble. It was he who provided the furniture for most of the sumptuous Dauphiné residences and who was the private cabinetmaker of the Duke Louis-Philippe d'Orléans, governor of Dauphiné.
