Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann

French, 1879 - 1933
Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann (1879-1933) was a French furniture designer and interior decorator who was active during the Art Deco era. He was known for his luxurious and refined style, which incorporated exotic woods, inlaid marquetry, and precious materials such as ivory and mother-of-pearl.
Ruhlmann began his career as a furniture maker in his family's business, but he quickly developed a passion for design and soon struck out on his own. He opened his own design studio in 1910, where he produced furniture, lighting, and other decorative objects.
Ruhlmann's work was characterized by its elegance and attention to detail. He favored simple, geometric forms, which he embellished with rich materials and intricate details. He often worked in collaboration with other artisans, including glassmakers, metalworkers, and lacquer artists, to create highly specialized pieces.
Today, Ruhlmann's work is highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts of Art Deco design. His pieces are known for their rarity and their exceptional craftsmanship.
