Maison Jansen was a Paris-based interior decoration office active in between 1920 and 1950.

Initially inspired by styles such as Louis XVI or Empire, the firm produced new work in a neoclassical spirit.

It also expanded to new trends (Art NouveauArt Deco and successive modern styles) and further foreign influences

Jansen is up to the present time a reference in interior design.

Shagreen is the untanned skin from shark or stingray. It displays an unusually rough and granular surface.

Skilled craftsmen use shagreen to cover items such as luxury luggage, toilet cases, rare books as well as larger pieces of furniture.
