Between 1921 and 1927, Poillerat worked for wrought iron expert Edgar Brandt doing design and production. In 1927, he began working for the construction framework firm Baudet, Donon and Roussel, and ran their decorative ironwork division, producing tables, screens, lighting, and more. During the 1930s and 1940s, Poillerat continued to design a variety of furniture and architectural elements, including tables, lighting, grilles, and consoles. His early work, in particular, was marked by a calligraphic-like fluidity. He drew inspiration from a variety of sources, including historical architecture and nature. In 1934, he began producing jewelry. In the mid-1930s, under the influence of Christian Bérard and Jean Cocteau, Poillerat found inspiration in the Neo-Baroque movement. In 1946, Poillerat left Baudet, Donon and Roussel to work as a professor at the École Nationale des Arts Decoratifs. He taught there for 26 years, all the while continuing his own design output, collaborating with the likes of André Arbus, Jean Pascaud, and Vadim Androusov. During the 1950s, his work took on a more geometric style.
