MamZelle Térébenthine’s world is full of appeal.

What’s behind it all?

Mado furniture from the 1950s that MamZelle Térébenthine recuperates, repairs and revamps.

Entirely repainted by her very own hands, these sideboards tell us in a whimsical, affectionate and funny way about the life of the 1950s housewife – or perhaps a pin-up from the same era?!

Sharp-eyed and sharp-tongued, she transforms French expressions into delicious paintings, dipping in and out of the world of children, sometimes even disguising wood as rusted metal and all with a sharp and impertinent attention to detail.

Let yourself be tempted by MamZelle Térébenthine, a true revolutionary of vintage retro.
