Guillerme et Chambron, double bed with nightstands, oak, France, 1960s
This set's main feature is obvious: It is all about the wood work. The excellent crafted frame has stunning sculpted detailing on the head- and footboard, which gives it a very luxurious and cosy feel to lie in. The open structure of the wooden frame give the bed a sculptural appearance as well. Two night stands executed in oak complement the bed. This remarkable pair with a geometric shape show elements of balance on opposite sides, and a game of proportion. They are pretty corporal but are easy to lift and can be placed easily anywhere. These sculptural pieces have a triangle foot and a little shelving unit as a body. Furthermore these pieces are typical for the style of Guillerme and Chambron through the use of oak and the fact that they are carved. Together, this set will lift up the ambience of every bedroom interior.
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.
