Exquisite Pair of Mirrored Pedestal Stands in Square Form Attributed to Jansen

About

Exquisite pair of mirrored pedestal stands in square form attributed to Maison Jansen. All four sides with faded design mirrors. From its beginnings Maison Jansen combined traditional furnishings with influences of new trends including Anglo-Japanese style, the Arts and Crafts movement and Turkish style. The firm paid great attention to historical research with which it attempted to balance clients' desires for livable, usable and often dramatic space. Within ten years the firm had become a major purchaser of European antiques and by 1890 had established an antiques gallery as a separate firm that acquired and sold antiques to Jansen's clients and its competitors as well. In the early 1920s Jean-Henri Jansen approached Stéphane Boudin, who was then working in the textile trimming business owned by his father Alexandre Boudin and brought him on board. Accounts of the arrangement vary. Speculation existed that Boudin was able to provide financial solvency to the prominent but capital-poor atelier. Boudin's attention to detail, concern for historical accuracy and ability to create dramatic and memorable spaces brought increasing new work to the firm. Boudin was made director and presided over an expansion of the firm's offices and income.
