Andre Leon Arbus

Andre Leon Arbus
Cabinet Maker.
Andre Leon Arbus was one of the most versatile designers of his time. He brilliantly applied his unique point of view to all the elements of his interiors, from private residences to ocean liners.
Beyond the exquisite neoclassical furniture for which he is most famous, he extended his reach to a variety of creative applications, including rugs, lighting and sculpture.

He was one of the last cabinet makers to work in the traditional way of the 18th century masters.
Throughout his career he collaborated with many of the great creative forces of his time
such as Gilbert Poillerat, Jaques Adnet, Raymond Subes and Vadim Androusov
and worked with the finest craftsmen and manufacturers including Aubusson and Veronese.

Arbus has influenced a generation of designers and his work is as vibrant and relevant today as it was over 50 years ago,
I am constantly amazed at how effortlessly his work compliments and enhances any contemporary setting.
