A well-preserved copy of the classic and highly sought-after first book on Maison Jansen , the Paris-based international decorating firm. The book covers the history of the firm from its founding in 1880, through Stephane Boudin's presidency from the 1920s to 60s, and into the modern era. Jansen's trademark European style of antiques with a frequent contemporary twist is generously illustrated with an international range of projects. The book is broken down into separate chapters for each type of room, plus chapters on offices, hotels, palaces, panelling and trompe-l'oeil, and the Jansen workshops.
