Classic French Art Deco cabinet by Louis Majorelle in macassar ebony with mother-of-pearl inlays in niche and with hand forged iron fittings. This cabinet is from the same design series as the fabulous office presented by Majorelle at the 1925 The International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts (L'Exposition internationale des arts décoratifs et industriels modernes). This cabinet is 65” w x 18” d x 59” h. 

Louis Majorelle was one of the founders and most renowned members of the Nancy school of design in the Art Nouveau period. Originally trained as a painter he returned to Nancy as a young man to assume responsibility for his family's furniture-making business. He then applied his artistic aesthetic to the design of furniture and lighting. He was quite fascinated by the use of exotic hardwoods and often incorporated them into his furniture, this cabinet being a fine example of the use of macassar ebony (from the Madagascar Islands).
