Furniture shop specialized in Louis XV and Louis XVI styles, but also in modern style furniture very fashionable at the time.
With an excellent reputation, the company developed largely under the direction of Blaise's son, Theodore in the 1890s.
The House was described as a producer of "furniture and bronzes of art, old and modern". Rewarded at the Universal Exhibitions in London and Paris; gold medal in 1889, at the Universal Exhibition in Paris, a "Grand Prix" in 1900 and three other Honorary Diplomas as well as four gold medals for the furniture presented.
An auction was held in 1906 to disperse the remaining furniture of the Maison MILLET, which finally ceased all activity in 1918.
The Maison MILLET was a privileged supplier of François LINKE, and of all the great families of the time.
