Zwiener Jansen Successeur


Zwiener Jansen Successeur was part of the celebrated firm of Maison Jansen.

Founded in Paris in 1880 by Jean-Henri Jansen (1854-1929) Maison Jansen was the first truly global interior design house.

Around 1895-1900 Jansen bought some of the master models of the celebrated furniture maker Emmanuel Zwiener, who had left Paris to return to Germany, and renamed the business 'Zwiener Jansen Successeur'.
Jansen continued to faithfully produce Zwiener's creations, using the original models and lavishing the utmost care on these meubles de luxe.
