Jean-Baptiste-Claude Sene became a master menuisier at the age of twenty-one,continuing the family precedent set by his father and grandfather. He created furniture for the French royal family, notably a bed made for Marie Antoinette. After the French Revolution, Sene worked as an administrator for the new republican government, a position that allowed him to continue making furniture unlike most of his competitors.
