Maison Jansen (House of Jansen) was a Paris-based interior decoration office founded in 1880 by Dutch-born Jean-Henri Jansen, and continued their business until 1989. Jansen is considered the first truly global design firm, serving clients in Europe, Latin America, North America and the Middle East by 1900.

From its beginnings Maison Jansen paid great attention to historical research for their furniture. Within ten years the firm had become a major purchaser of European antiques, which was also sold to Jansen’s clients.  Originally the business was not equipped with its own production facility.  They started off by relying upon antiques and contracting cabinetmakers. By the early 1890s Maison Jansen had established its own manufacturing capacity producing his own furniture.  Maison Jansen is best known for their Louis XIV, Louis XVI, Directoire, and Empire reproduction styles.
