About Francis Jourdain (1876-1958)
Painter, furniture maker, interior designer, maker of ceramics and other decorative arts Francis Jourdain was a pioneer of the Art Nouveau style and distinguished as a decorator after the Villa Majorelle project in Nancy.
Jourdain published many articles on modern art and aesthetics in which he attacked the ostentatious luxury that was typical of contemporary French design. His own designs were simple, with straightforward construction.
He collaborated with Le Corbusier in 1920 in publishing a journal titled L'esprit nouveau, subsidized by the government. It advocated standardization and industrial production as an alternative to individual design, as a requirement to rebuild the shattered French society and economy of the years following World War I.

About Jules Leuleu (1883-1961)
A designer and ensemblier, Jules Leleu was one of the key authors of the Art Deco movement. While he did not win the international fame of such contemporaries as Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann and Jean-Michel Frank, Leleu had a longer career and was easily their peer in the conception of trim, refined furniture forms and in the use of the opulent materials — from lacquer and ivory to sharkskin and exotic woods.

About les Freres Muller
(Muller Brothers) in Luneville, France, was one of the premier glassmakers of the period. The Mullers produced art glass competing with Daum and Galle from 1895 till the war intervened in 1914. Resuming production in 1919, the company concentrated on ceiling fixtures, wall sconces and table lamps. The Depression caused Muller Freres to cease production in 1933 and finally close down in 1936.
