Morris Gamblin, the saddle-upholsterer (and incidentally manufacturer of horse harnesses) was introduced to the profession of upholstery. His son, also named Maurice Gamblin, would be trained by observing the selection and working with noble materials, particularly woods from the region, such as beech, oak or poplar, and also materials such as wool and linen.
During the 1980s, he met the young Emmanuelle Merveglio de Vigno, whom he married and with whom he established the family business.

The Art of Sleeping Well According to Nation Literie
For more than 75 years, Nation Literie strives to design high quality bedding products. The products have been thought out and designed using noble, high-performance materials as well as the meticulous know-how of a team of tailors, cabinet-makers, mattress makers, machinists, carpenters and even upholsterers.
These experts prepare a large catalog of mattresses, box springs and beds to meet the expectations of the largest number. They use noble materials for this, such as hard wood, lamb’s wool, silk or even natural latex.
Even after several decades of existence, Nation Literie remains true to its values and strives to be a committed player. It is also for this reason that its workshops are still located in Aisne (one at Coincy l’Abaye for the manufacture of beds and box springs, the other in Fère en Tardenois for the manufacture of mattresses). Because you should know that one of Nation Literie’s priorities is to boost the local economy and the short-circuit economy as much as possible.
To achieve its goals, the family business has chosen to use local wood species from local players, such as linen from Hauts-de-France or stains and varnishes from the Paris region. It has also set up “from producer to consumer” operation by fully controlling its circuit (advice, sale, delivery, after-sales service).
