Maison Jansen (House of Jansen) was a Paris-based interior decoration office founded in 1880 by Dutch-born Jean-Henri Jansen. Jansen is considered the first truly global design firm, serving clients in Europe, Latin America, North America and the Middle East. This House is located at 23, rue de l’Annonciation, Paris. At first Maison Jansen had no atelier to create its own pieces; they relied heavily on antiques and items directly comissioned to artisans. It was in the early 1940’s that Maison Jansen created its first atelier de manufacture in a space of 17000 square metres located at rue Saint SABIN in Paris where they employed over 200 artisans specialized in cabinet-making, upholstery, gilding, metalwork and lighting. Amongst Maison Jansen’s great works was the redecoration of the White House for Jackie Kennedy and Leeds Castle for Lady Baillie.
