Very tall Palm tree light
by Maison Jansen



The Paris-based Maison Jansen was a pioneering
design firm active between the 19th and 20th
centuries, and was the creator of the period's most
dazzling backdrops.

Founded in 1880, at the height of Beaux-Arts
fashion, Jansen began to garner attention among
the upper class in France's Third Republic.

By the turn of the 20th century, Jansen's reputation
was international, and the firm counted the
monarchs of England, Belgium, Holland, and Spain
among its clientele. From 1905 through the 1980s,
Jansen dispatched its luxury services through a
cluster of energetic satellite offices spanning North
and South America, Europe and Africa.

When the company finally closed the doors of
its 9 rue Royale headquarters in 1989, Jansen's
evolving, iconic style, a mix of 18th-century
Bourbon finery, Hollywood theatrics, and English
country house refinement, remains today the
subject of much emulation and desire.
