Zwiener Jansen Successeur was part of the celebrated firm of Maison Jansen. Founded in Paris in 1880 by Jean-Henri Jansen, the firm became the first truly global interior design house and continued trading until 1989. Around 1900 Jansen bought some of the master models of the celebrated furniture maker Joseph-Emmanuel Zwiener and continued his production as Zwiener Jansen Successeur.
