About

Eat your hearts out Jansen collectors, this pair of Maison Jansen loveseats are signed underneath with 'Jansen/ Industria Argentina' stenciled fabric signifying this important pair of upholstered settees were made in Jansen's Buenos Aires workshop. Newly reupholstered in pink bouclé which thick textures accent the curvy and seductive silhouettes. Seat cushions stuffed with new down filling. Priced for the pair, contact us if you wish to purchase a single loveseat sofa. From the 1880s to the 1980s, Maison Jansen outfitted many of the most important homes and offices from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and Pamela Harriman just to name a few. Jansen's surviving interiors for monarchs, dictators, and social doyennes are now the focus of preservation projects while the furniture and objets d’art are sought after by interior designers, collectors and art investors, and decorative arts scholars alike. This is an incredible opportunity to acquire a piece of Maison Jansen's history. As not many of Jansen's designs were signed, this prized collectors piece can serve as functional art and historical preservation while it's comfort and beauty grace your home or office. This signed Maison Jansen pair of two-seater sofas would work great in a French Neoclassical, Traditional, Transitional, Hollywood Regency, Classical, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Post-Modern, Contemporary or Zen / Minimalism room and is also an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. MEASUREMENTS: H 35.5" x W 54" x D 32" Seat Height: 18.5" Seat Depth: 22.5" Arm Height: 25.5" CONDITION: Excellent reupholstered condition. The wood block feet were intentionally left original with age and wear. The fabric underneath was also intentionally left original since they are signed with Jansen stamps. We added additional supporting fabric to the opposite side and adhered it so to strengthen the stenciled fabric. Beautiful pair of sofas ready for immediate use.

About the Manufacturer

Maison Jansen

The Dutch-born Jean-Henri Jansen (1854–1928) was only in his mid-20s when he set up his Parisian design business in 1880. By the time he died, Maison Jansen had become the world’s first international decorating firm. Today, it is still regarded as one of the most notable firms and period furniture manufacturers in history, with its vintage floor lamps, tables, dressers and other furnishings remaining in demand.

Maison Jansen initially came to international prominence in 1883 when the young Jean-Henri Jansen traveled to Amsterdam to participate in the International Colonial Exposition, an event that featured presentations by 28 different nations and was attended by over a million visitors. There he exhibited as part of the French pavilion and won the silver medal. This led to two prominent new clients: King William III of the Netherlands and King Alfonso XII of Spain. Next was King Leopold II of Belgium for the interiors of the Château du Laeken, as well as commissions for Egypt’s King Farouk and Great Britain’s King Edward VII. Thanks to his participation in global expositions and fairs, Jansen expanded the renown of the firm so that its studios would reign in such major cities as London, New York, Buenos Aires, Cairo and many more.

Jansen was not only sought after for his taste but also for his custom period-inspired pieces. For example, in the Count and Countess de Revilla de Camargo’s Havana mansion, Jansen designed Louis XV–style furniture crafted from Cuban mahogany, enhancing Maison Jansen’s reputation as an expert maker. His custom furniture business was so successful that by 1900 he had opened his own atelier and employed around 700 artisans. In the 1960s, the firm, then led by Stéphane Boudin, worked with Jacqueline Kennedy on the refurbishment of rooms in the White House, including such spaces as the Queens’ Sitting Room, which featured bright blue fabric and neoclassical details.

Maison Jansen continued to produce furniture designs through the 20th century, responding to shifting tastes from Art Nouveau to Modern Regency. The atelier and studio officially closed its doors in 1989.
