Louis Sue and André Mare were furniture designers in the 20’s in Paris. They did some very elegant and exclusive furniture in the art Deco style.
This desk and chair set is an enormously complicated thing to build. First of all, it is done in ebony, which is physically the hardest wood cabinetmakers work with. On top of that it has inlays in mother-of-pearl (both white and gold) and abalone.
The carving is beautifully done and the shell inlay really jumps out on the black background.
