The fabled decorating firm Maison Jansen opened its doors in Paris, in 1880. Its founder was a young Dutchman in his mid-twenties by the name of Jean-Henri Jansen. Jansen became the first international design firm and when he died in 1928, Maison Jansen had outposts in major cities throughout the world: London, New York, Buenos Aires, Cairo, Havana, Prague, Rome and Rio de Janeiro. By 1900, Maison Jansen was commissioning so much furniture that it established its own atelier, which at the height of its operations, employed 700 artisans.
