Muller Frères

French glass factory 1895-1933, located in Luneville, France, renowned for producing Art Nouveau glass vases and shades. After WW1, they also made wrought iron and glass chandeliers. Originally from Alsace, some members of the family worked with Émile Gallé before starting their own business.

Art Déco

A popular movement in the 1920s and 30s, promoted by Ruhlmann and other great Paris furniture manufacturers, and the big department stores. The style was influenced by Aztec and Egyptian design, the Ballets Russes, Hollywood musicals and the new ocean-going liners. It featured stepped and geometric designs, sunrays and chevrons.
