Pair of French Table Lamps by Maison Jansen

French Table Lamps Maison Jarden

Few design houses can compete with the reputation of the legendary Maison Jansen.  For the century they were in business, this firm set the look for royal palaces and government residences, most notably the White House during the JFK administration.  Even more incredible is that they had a global business at the turn of the 20th century, with projects across Europe, the Middle East, South America, and elsewhere, way before international travel was the common practice we think of today.  What it must have been like to work for such a company! Available through Caira Mandaglio in London.
