Born in 1900, Paul Dupré Lafon was a French Art Deco designer and architect. Called the ‘’decorator of millionaires’’, Paul Dupré Lafon created beautiful interiors for a wealthy and fashionable clientele. Melding a Cubist philosophy with mid-century Modern design, he consequently combined excellence in cabinet-making with innovative and geometric designs. Dupré Lafon privileged luxurious materials such as Macassar Ebony or Brazilian Rosewood. He mixed them with leather (mainly box-calf), parchment, limestone or chromed steel to create contrasting effects on his furniture. During the 1920s and 1930s, Paul Dupré Lafon also worked for Hermès. He designed accessories such as desk sets, lighting and even pieces of furniture. His decorative style still largely inspires contemporary interior architecture.
