"In the inventive and joyful style Royere developed he artfully blended modernity and classicism with enthusiasm and humour." - Art et Decoration, 2002. Born, in 1902, Jean Royere began to express his taste for decoration very early on. By the age of 30 he had already launched his brilliant career as a decorator. After wearing out and then eschewing the functionalism so in vogue in the 1930s, in 1939, at the Salon des artistes Decorateurs, he presented a boudoir which provocatively marked the return of ornament. A keen observer of contemporary design, Royere was an early discoverer of the Scandinavian and Italian designers - especially Alvar Aalto and Gio Ponti - and their new forms freely associating a set of ornaments, and employed them in variations of extreme virtuosity. From 1931 to 1972, this tireless traveller completed over a thousand projects around the globe, from the interior design of the Cite ouvriere d'Aplemont, a workers' housing development in northern France, to the decoration of the palace of the Shah of Iran, with great lightness creating a style evoking a desire for freedom that would leave its mark on an entire era and many of his contemporary designers. His furniture and objects, notably his emblematic armchairs and Ours sofas, are now the passionate focus of collectors of art and design around the world. Prefaced by Jean-Louis Gaillemin, this new edition enables readers to discover and to enrich their knowledge with little-known aspects of Jean Royere's oeuvre, largely thanks to some one hundred new illustrations.
