Jean Royère (1902-1981) studied the classics at Cambridge University and initially worked as a banker before beginning his career as a decorator in 1931 by working for a furniture manufacturer in Paris. In 1942, he set up his own office and became regarded a grand master of decorating in Paris following his redesign of the Brasserie Carlton on the Champs Elysées, which found immediate success. He also received prominent commissions abroad including the residences of King Farouk of Egypt, King Hussein of Jordan and the Shah of Iran. Royère became a key figure of the Avant-Garde by pioneering an original style that combined bright colors and organic forms and he has since become extremely collectable.
