MAISON JANSEN and STEPHANE BOUDIN

The renowned interior design firm, MAISON JANSEN, was founded by Jean-Henri Jansen in 1880.  With a strong commitment to accurately representing 18th-Century design with the highest standards of excellence, Jansen was soon to become the design firm to Royalty and a global enterprise with satellite boutiques around the world.

STEPHANE JULES LEON BOUDIN joined Maison Jansen in the early 1920's and served as its President from 1936-1961.  Boudin is best known for his designs for The Duke and Duchess of Windsor, The Royal Family of Belgium, The White House (for Jacqueline Kennedy), as well as many other clients of prestige. Boudin's name has become synonymous with the Jansen Style.  His commitment to interpreting 18th-Century French design with historical accuracy, while incorporating elements of the modern aesthetic, brought this international design house to the height of its reign. By the time Boudin was President of Jansen, it was unsurpassed in both its scope and level of excellence. Jansen was certainly the most important Interior Design Firm of the 20th-Century and Stephane Boudin is considered France's most important designer.

GILDWOOD SETTEE

An elegant settee measuring 6 feet 2" in width by 3 feet 4 1/2" tall at its camel back. Four legs at the back indicate finest craftsmanship. Also the camel back is more unusual on the Louis XVI style pieces. The fabric on the back is a coordinating cream and beige set in a checkered pattern. There are minor losses to the gilding which will be restored by our professional antique restorer, before this piece leaves our gallery. The gilding is exquisite, as it is 22 karat gold leaf; this is a very lovely piece.

FRANCOIS LINKE, born in Pankraz, Bohemia, is considered to have been the greatest Parisian cabinetmaker of his time.

Linke worked closely with the enigmatic sculptor Leon Message, creating a new and captivating style which combined elements of the rococo with the fashionable l'art nouveau. This master ebeniste received critical acclaim at the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1900, where he won the coveted Gold Medal.

Considered among the most important furniture makers from the late 1800s through the early 1900s, Linke's pieces are prized by collectors worldwide.
