A three piece suite compromsing a sofa and two chauffeuses by Paul Follot (1877-1941) with contemporary silver-coloured upholstery. France, circa 1925.
Paul Follot (1877-1941) was a French designer of luxury furniture and decorative art objects before World War I. He was one of the leaders of the Art Deco movement, and had huge influence in France and
abroad. After the war, he became head of the Pomone decorative arts workshop of Le Bon Marché department store, making affordable yet elegant and high-quality work.
Follot made well-upholstered pieces in gently curved and ornamented giltwood frames. He liked using rare
materials, with inlays of contrasting colors and gilded bronze friezes. In terms of style, his furniture came closer to Louis XVI or Empire than to contemporary Art Nouveau.
