  • Description
    The firm of Jansen was founded in Paris at 9 rue Royale in 1880 by Jean-Henri Jansen (1854-1828). By the early 20th century, the firm was restricted to producing period interiors that matched the ambitions and tastes of their mainly conservative clientele that included families such as the Rockefellers and the Vanderbilts as well as King Leopold of Belgium. From 1936, it was the leadership of Stéphane Boudin (1888-1967) that transformed Maison Jansen from the constraints of a traditional decorating house into the most prestigious and in-demand décorateur du jour. It was at this time that Boudin developed the historicist style of Jansen, and examples are seen in the influential interiors he created for clients such as Chips and Lady Honor Channon at Belgrave Square, Lady Baillie at Leeds Castle, Mrs. Ronald Tree (Nancy Lancaster) at Ditchley Park, and at the White House for the Kennedys. After Boudin’s retirement in 1961, the equally talented Pierre Delbée (1900-1974) assumed the role of senior decorator. His projects included the Elysée Palace, the Shah of Iran’s tented palace at Persepolis, celebrating 2,500 years of continuous rule, and La Leopolda for Gianni Agnelli. The style that evolved under Boudin and Delbée was a union of eighteenth century French hôtel particulier historicism, 1920s timeless Hollywood theatricality and English country house subtlety, all evolving into what became known as the Jansen look.
