Louis Marjorelle (1859-1926) began his career in the furniture making company of his father. He was copying old style furniture. Under the influence of Emile Gallé , he oriented his work on new shapes of furniture and a natural decor. In 1900, he added blacksmith to his activity to realize the handles for the furniture and also railings or balconies. In 1901, he co-founded the Ecole de Nancy and became vice president. (Ecole de Nancy is the name of the Art Nouveau movement in Nancy). He became soon internationally famous and opened in 1910 shops in Paris, Lille and Lyon.
