Guillerme et Chambron for Votre Maison, writing desk, oak, France, 1960s.

This pair of desks are designed by the renowned French duo Guillerme et Chambron. These items hold an utterly well-balanced construction supported by the characteristic aesthetic language of the designers. The wooden frame is executed in solid oak and showcases right-angled shapes and lines. Functionality also plays a major role in the design. The top can be moved which allows the user to store its stationary underneath it. Both the sides are accompanied by compartments with built-in shelves. The design offers plenty of storage space.

Please note that the wood shows signs of use. If you would like to know more about the current condition and the possibilities to restore the table, we kindly ask you to contact our design experts.

The French designer duo Jacques Chambron (1914-2001) and Robert Guillerme (1913-1990) started their production postwar. Robert Guillerme studied design and architecture at the École Boule and graduated first in his class in 1934. Meanwhile, Jacques Chambron graduated from the School of Applied Arts in Reims. During the Second World War, the two met in a stalag, a Prussian prisoner camp, while being imprisoned by the Germans in East Prussia and started a great friendship based on their intense and deep passion for interior design. In 1948, Chambron resigned from his job as a painter and decorator on the Rue Nollet in Paris to move to Lille, in the North of France and join Guillerme. A year later, the two met cabinetmaker Émile Dariosecq, who was the owner of a workshop close by. It was during this meeting, that they decided to create their own company. They named it “Votre Maison”, meaning “Your Home”, which became the soul of the company.
