Maison 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. The firm's mid-century furniture designers and makers included Stéphane Boudin, Pierre Paulin, and Christian Liaigre. Boudin was responsible for the interiors of the White House during the Kennedy administration, and provided services to the royal families of Belgium, Iran, and Serbia; Elsie de Wolfe, and Lady Olive Baillie's Leeds Castle in Kent, England. Paulin created iconic pieces such as the Mushroom Chair and the Ribbon Chair. Liaigre's work is characterized by its clean lines and minimalist aesthetic. After Stéphane Boudin's death in 1967, colleague Pierre Delbée took over the business. Maison Jansen came under new ownership in 1979 and finally closed in 1989.
