Selmersheim Chair - Historic Designs
Joseph Paul Anthony Selmersheim, known as Tony Selmersheim (1871–1971) was French architect and decorator. He became an architect, and worked with Charles Plumet. Selmersheim worked at La Maison Moderne of Julius Meier-Grafe, whose showrooms displayed rooms decorated in Art Nouveau style, with designers such as Henry van de Velde, Victor Horta, Charles Plumet and Maurice Dufrene. By the start of the 20th century the partnership of Selmersheim and Plumet had become the leading Art Nouveau company in Paris. They tried to combine British and Belgian design innovations with French taste. Gustave Soulier considered Plumet and Selmersheim were truly innovative in their furniture designs, which combined workmanship , elegance and functionality. Selmersheim became a member of L'Art dans Tout, a group of decorative artists. (Source: wikipedia.org)
