Maison Jansen

French, 1880
Maison Jansen was a French interior design and decoration firm that was founded in Paris in 1880 by Jean-Henri Jansen. The company quickly established itself as one of the leading design firms in France, known for its luxurious and eclectic style that combined elements of different historical periods and design styles.
Maison Jansen became especially popular in the early 20th century, when it designed the interiors of some of the most prestigious buildings and residences around the world, including the White House in Washington D.C. and the Palace of the Maharajah of Indore in India. The company was also known for its collaborations with prominent artists and designers, including André Arbus, Paul Follot, and Pierre Legrain.
Maison Jansen's designs were characterized by their opulence and grandeur, featuring luxurious materials such as marble, gilt, and exotic woods, and incorporating a wide range of decorative elements, including sculptures, murals, and tapestries. The company also created custom furniture pieces and accessories, such as chandeliers, mirrors, and fireplace surrounds, to complete their overall design schemes.
Although Maison Jansen's popularity declined in the mid-20th century as the modernist design movement gained popularity, the company's legacy continues to influence contemporary interior design, and their designs are highly sought after by collectors and design enthusiasts around the world.
