SUE ET MARE

LOUIS SUE (1875-1968)
ANDRE MARE (1887 -1932)

The partnership between French architect, painter, and decorator, LOUIS SUE and painter ANDRE MARE was launched in 1910 when they began designing furniture together. They established their own interior design firm in 1919 in the firm they called Compagnie des Arts Francais on he posh rue du Faubourg Saing-Honore in Paris.


They collaborated with a number of other fine designers of the period in
an approach to design that was inspired by the style of the Louis Philippe period. It celebrated the use of theatrical forms with generous gilding and an eye for opulence. Together they designed interiors for several of the great French ocean liners, including lIe-de-France, and the 1925 d'Orsay perfume shop in Paris. Their commissions included private villas and apartments including the one for couturier Jean Patou.


Their work included the design of two pavilions at the 1925 Paris
Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes.
