The Cahiers du Mobilier, initiated by the PERRIN family, is a greatly knowledgeable publication of extensive university studies on 18th century cabinet makers. The Perrins perceived the lack of information on the subject, and decided to contribute to the publication.

A scientific committee was formed, providing crucial support to substantiate the project:

Scientific committee :

>Daniel Alcouffe, conservateur général des musées, (General Curator of museums), formerly in charge of the département des Objets d’art of the musée du Louvre,

> Christian Baulez, conservateur en chef (Head Curator) au musée national des châteaux de Versailles et de Trianon,

>Gérard Mabille, conservateur en chef (Head Curator) au musée national des Châteaux de Malmaison et de Bois Préau,

> Ulrich Leben, doctor in art history .
