Jansen is the first comprehensive study of Maison Jansen - the most celebrated decorating house of the 20th century.

The book documents the evolution of this legendary Paris-based company from family firm to global enterprise.

It showcases over 30 of the firm's most alluring commissions, including rooms for the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, the Shah and Shahbanou of Iran, and President and Mrs. John F. Kennedy for whom Jansen renovated and redecorated the White House.

Over 300 illustrations in color and duotone.
