Paul Dupré-Lafon, sideboard, 1940’s

Oak-veneered wood, oak, parchment, leather and brass.

Trained as an architect, he used beautiful materials and made furniture for a small very wealthy clientele. Inspired by cubism, his work is completely modern with little reference to past forms of decoration. He never exhibited publicly, though he did create a number of designs which were produced by Hermés.
