Guillerme et Chambron for Votre Maison, sideboard, oak, marble, France, 1960s.

This charming sideboard is made by the designer duo Guillerme & Chambron. This item is a good example of excellent woodworking by virtue of the graphical designed doors, illustrating geometric carvings. This design feature adds a wonderful rhythmic and haptic surface to the front. Plenty of storage is available through the built-in shelves behind the door panels and five extendable drawers. The marble plate is a nice addition to the whole. The oak material has an incredibly warm texture that shows nice wood grains and admirable patina, and in combination with the characteristic handles, the sideboard gives the room a lively ambiance.

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. With this, they wanted to create pieces that focused on functionality combined with a beautiful design useful for daily life, by which they created a worldwide reputation. Most of the furniture designed by this duo shows a strong character and has a great expressive woodwork. The three of them divided their work equally. Overall, Guillerme worked as a designer, Chambron as a commercial, and Dariosecq’s workshop manufactured the pieces. Throughout their career, ‘Votre Maison’ produced over two thousand models, leaving a lasting mark in the world of design.
