Maurice Dufrène

French, 1876 - 1955
Maurice Dufrêne (1876-1955) was a French designer and decorator who was a leading figure in the Art Deco movement. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and later became a member of the Société des Artistes Décorateurs.
Dufrêne was known for his innovative designs and his use of modern materials such as glass, chrome, and lacquered wood. He created furniture, textiles, and decorative objects for a range of clients, including luxury department stores, hotels, and private homes.
One of Dufrêne's most famous works is the interior of the Salon des Collections at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, which he designed in 1925 for the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes. The salon featured a striking combination of bold colors, geometric shapes, and luxurious materials, and it became an iconic example of Art Deco style.
Dufrêne's designs were highly influential in the Art Deco movement, and his work continues to be celebrated for its modernity and sophistication.
