Royere Gouffe Cerused Oak Pair of Nightstand or Side Tables, France, 1930

About

Royere Gouffe cerused oak pair of nightstand or side tables, Deco Mid-Century, France, 1930 Amazing rare Royere tables. Cersued oak. Adds elegance to any decor. One has Gouffe tag. Originally was part of a seven piece bedroom set. Further photos available upon request. In original condition. In 1931, aged 29, Jean Royère (1902-1981) resigned from a comfortable position in the import-export trade in order to set up business as an interior designer. He learnt his new trade in the cabinetmaking workshops of the Faubourg Saint-Antoine in Paris. In 1934, he signed the new layout of the Brasserie Carlton on the Champs Elysées and found immediate success. This was the beginning of an international career that was to last until the early 1970s. A key figure of the Avant-garde in the 1950s, Royère tackled all kinds of decoration work and opened branches in the Near East and Latin America. Among his patrons were King Farouk, King Hussein of Jordan, and the Shah of Iran, who were captivated by his freedom of creation and his elegance and entrusted him with the layout of their palaces. Royère pioneered an original style combining bright colors, organic forms and precious materials within a wide range of imaginative accomplishments. In 1980, he left France for the United States, where he lived until his death. (Perriand, Jean-Michel Frank, Prouve).
