Residing on rue Saint Nicolas in Paris, his production is essentially Regency style furniture. Perhaps this is due to the influence of his father-in-law? Both of them sold their works in their store, located in rue Saint Honoré. Collaborating with the famous Pierre Migeon, one finds on certain pieces of furniture their two stamps. The one of Louis Simon PAINSU is very recognizable, since he signs with his initials: L.S.P.
