ABEL LANDRY (1871-1923)

An architect and designer, Abel Landry was born in Limoges, France and spent his career working in Paris. He studied at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Limoges and then at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He also studied under the great English Arts and Crafts designer, William Morris, in London. Landry's preference was to create total interiors, including wallpaper, curtains, carved paneling, and artwork for the walls. He designed private homes and villas in Paris, Bordeaux, Coteaux, and apartment buildings in Lyons and Marseilles. Many of his small objects were made by La Maison Moderne's shop and after that shop closed, his work was sold at Deroullia et Petit, at Grand Magasins de Printemps and at Maison Ballauf et Petitpoint. Landry's furniture designs were shown at the Paris Salons from 1901-1914.
