La Bastille is the corporate home of all Bastille luxury offerings, including Bastille Metal Works, Bastille Cabinetry, Bastille Furnishings, Bastille Motor Works, Bastille Prototyping and the Bastille Foundation. La Bastille is a leading producer of custom interior surfaces and fine furnishings, integrating unusual yet classical materials with smart and striking designs.

The company was founded by Christopher Lee Plummer and Katiana Plummer. Chris and Katiana are a great team. Chris handles all of the creative and technical aspects of La Bastille and Katiana is responsible for La Bastille operations. Chris' life-long passion for fine arts sparked his interest in unique mediums, specifically metals. His fascination of the history of the intricate patterns in architectural metals lead to his work with historic metal restoration and erecting large-scale building facades in metals. This work ultimately led to the creation of Bastille Metal Works, recognized world-wide as the leader in zinc and pewter installations in both large scale commercial settings as well as within the most beautifully appointed homes throughout the world. Today, our custom zinc and pewter bar tops and furnishings are not only sold throughout the United States and Canada, but are also displayed world-wide in Asia, South America, Australia, and Europe, including the location of zinc and pewter's heritage- France.

La Bastille works directly with residential clients as well as award-winning architects, designers, and restaurateurs to create high-end, custom looks housed in a variety of settings, from traditional Parisian bistros to ultra-modern luxury hotels to everything in between. La Bastille has revolutionized the art of using unexpected materials in exciting ways, all for the discerning client who desires the unusual without sacrificing beautiful design and of equal importance, function.

La Bastille continues to expand its offerings, as we are a company that prides itself on accepting challenges in design that are not easily achieved. Our imaginations are easily stirred, prompting us to develop new techniques and to use unique materials to provide never-before seen designs in mixed materials, from soft metals to exotic woods, unusual hides to antique tiles to authentic French enamel, we do not shy away from a design idea. Our company mission is to achieve the fearless integration of smart design with interesting and unusual materials.
