A pair of obelisk lucite table lamps by Maison Jansen. The bases in brass and steel, resting on ball feet.
Founded by Dutchman Jean-Henri Jansen in 1880 in Paris, Maison Jansen was the most famous and influential interior decorating house of the 20th century.
In it's one hundred and nine year history, the firm was patronised by the British and Iranian royal families, countless household names, the occasional dictator and most famously redecorated the White House for the Kennedys. Jansen eventually opened offices in Buenos Aires, London, Cairo, Alexandria, Havana, and New York as well as Rome, Milan and Geneva.
Although Jansen initially promoted modernist design when it was founded - which it continued to do throughout its existence - the firm became renowned for its adoption of the 18th century neoclassical styles associated with the last French Bourbon kings. This regal taste would become a hallmark of the firm. The designer Stephane Boudin (1888-1967), who led Jansen from 1936 to 1961 as its president, and whose name was virtually interchangeable with that of the firm, established what became the internationally recognised Jansen look: a skilful mix of 18th century classicicm, 1920s Hollywood glamour and country house details.
