The upholsterers and decorators at Disneyland® Paris look after all the furniture of the destination day after day. Thomas Fertier joined this team of ten persons in 2004. His wish was to work at what is really a passion. Today he invited us into his workshop backstage.
Thomas hands and works daily with wood, vinyl, cloth or mousse for the upkeep of all the furniture in the restaurants, whether in the parks or in the hotels. Upholstered benches, cushions, curtains or even umbrellas go through the hands of Thomas and his team.
To be an upholsterer and a decorator, it takes a wise combination of experience, of know-how and of knowing how to work quickly, while showing creativity and imagination.
Thomas put his talent to work for Disneyland Paris 10 years ago. His greatest satisfaction is to see his creations in the parks and know that his work contributes daily to the Disney magic.
