France: circa 1950 Reference: p: 10-11, 86,98,141,147,193 196 for similar models in Dupré Lafon décorateur des millionnaires par Thierry Couvrat Desvergnes Éditions de L'amateur Provenance: Private collection Palm Beach Florida , property designed and decorated by Peter Marino Architect for George Lindemann. Paul Dupré-Lafon trained as an architect but worked primarily as an interior designer. Originally from Marseille, it took him only five years to establish himself in Paris and by the late 1920s he was creating entire interiors for wealthy clientèle including the bankers Dreyfus and Rothschild. He has been described as ‘décorateur des millionaires’ (a designer for the billionaires) (T. Couvrat-Desvergnes, Paul Dupré-Lafon, Décorateur des Millionnaires, Paris, 1990) and for forty years worked as such. He was a reserved man preferring not to show his designs in exhibitions, but instead concentrating all his energy on his projects. His furniture combined the functionality of modernist design with the luxury of art deco. It was critical to Dupré-Lafon that his furniture should not only be works of art but also should serve its users and be practical. Creating impressive forms that communicate a sense of power and grandeur through their simplicity, curves and angles filled him with fascination. The present cabinet illustrates Dupré-Lafon’s skills, uniting function with aesthetic qualities.
