The latter asked him to make furniture with flowery marquetry and lacquered furniture, of Chinese inspiration, in the taste of the time. Given the success of these first orders, Léonard BOUDIN passed his master's degree. In 1761, he was awarded the title of Master Cabinetmaker and set up his workshop on rue Traversière in Paris, where the finesse and perfection of his marquetry work was recognized. Famous merchants ordered furniture from him, such as Louis Moreau or Gérard Péridiez. Faced with the influx of orders, he opened a store on rue de Fromenteau in 1772, where he also sold bronzes and porcelain. In 1777 he moved to the cloister of Saint Germain l'Auxerrois.  He was then one of the main dealers in Paris and his furniture in the Louis XV, Transition and Louis XVI styles are recognizable by their excellent workmanship, their veneers and their characteristic marquetry. Today, we still speak of marquetry "à la manière Boudin". This is characterized by large rosettes with singular curling effects, or loops located at the 4 corners of the panels or at the top of the legs of the furniture. Its stamp is the proof of the high quality of a piece of furniture.
