André Groult
(1884 – 1966)

From a traditional family, André Groult decided to become a decorator-designer against his parents’ wish. To stand out from Art Nouveau, Groult adopted a more delicate style using precious materials and woods such as Macassar ebony, ivory, lacquer… Taking part in many Salons/fairs, he created a suite of shagreen furniture for the Société des Artistes Décorateurs (SAD) in 1921. His work is known for his quality and elegance.
