During the reign of Napoleon III, Ternisien collaborated with Dantant, who was both a leading cabinetmaker and tapestry designer. In 1856, Ternisien and Dantant made the furniture for the Imperial train according to the plans of Viollet-le-Duc. Then in 1874, the Count of Paris, Philippe d'Orléans, commissioned Viollet-le-Duc to restore the Château d'Eù; Viollet-le-Duc in turn hired Ternisien and Dant to provide the furniture for the Château according to his own detailed drawings. Ternisien completed the Rio rosewood pieces, highlighted by deep carving for the gilding room, the billiard room, and the prince's study, as well as the execution of a large gun cabinet and stoup for the chapel in 1877. The majority of this furniture is now in the Louis Philippe Museum at the Château d'Eù.
