The Adnet Collection

Art Deco ‎is an eclectic artistic and design style that began in Paris in the 1920s and flourished internationally throughout the 1930s, into the World War II era.

Jacques Adnet is a furniture designer best known for his Art Deco Modernist designs and an icon of French Modernism.  Known for his avant-garde designs, Adnet was one of the first to integrate metal and glass in the structure and decoration of furniture. His style is the epitome of luxury.

In 1950, Adnet formed a partnership with the French fashion house, Hermes, where he developed a collection of leather-covered furniture and interior accessories. Accordingly, he made a round leather mirror with brass hinges. Besides the remarkable leather and brass details, the mirror is also unique as the strap that holds the mirror is in direct proportion to the dimension of the mirror.
