Louis Majorelle (1859–1926) France

Louis Majorelle was a French furniture designer. He was born in 1859 in the village of Toul, near Nancy. Majorelle studied art at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, but after his father's death he returned to his hometown to take over his father's carpentry that mainly produced Rococo furniture.
In the 1890s, Majorelle was strongly influenced by the work of glass artist Emile Gallé, and began designing furniture in the shapes of the Art Nouveau style. Majorelle became one of the main producers of Art Nouveau furniture. During the 1920s, Majorelle’s furniture designs went from a flourishing Art Nouveau style and moved towards the austere and geometric designs of the Art Deco style.
