About Alain Delon (Designer)
His smoldering gaze, chiseled features and roles in such films as The Leopard and Le Samourai won actor Alain Delon international fame in the 1960s. His name and face became emblematic of a certain type of cool French sophistication, and in the 1970s, many fans may be surprised to learn, Delon brought his sense of style to bear on the world of furniture design, when he created a series of pieces for the venerable Paris decorating firm Maison Jansen.
Delon’s designs run the gamut of forms, from cabinets and consoles to side tables and armchairs, and a few pieces — notably, his backgammon tables — nod to chic and languorous leisure interests. The detailing and materials of many of his designs point to Art Deco inspirations: scalloped and fluted edges, lacquer finishes and brass trim. Other, more angular pieces, like his backgammon tables, suggest a modern take on chinoiserie. Whatever form they take, as you will see on these pages, all of Alain Delon’s designs have an elegance and glamor that would make them the centerpiece of a sleek, simple decor.
