Robert Guillerme (1913-1990) and Jacques Chambron (1914-2001) are two French creators of the brand “Votre Maison”, famous workshop of furniture manufacture and interior decoration in the 1950’s. Guillerme graduated in the Ecole Boulle in 1940 and then became an architect and an interior decorator for the Rogier society. Whereas Chambron graduated in the Ecole des Arts Appliqués in Reims in 1938 and then became a decorator painter in his own workshop. The two men met after war and created their own society “Votre Maison” where everyone had a precise function : Guillerme created, Chambron did the commercial part and Emile Dariosecq, cabinetmaker, manufactured furniture. The success was quick and they create a large diversity of low-cost furniture with the use of characteristical materials and techniques of the society as the waxed oak, a light hue of the wood or a dark hue obtained thanks to the iron oxide. Armchairs and sofas were realized on a same model with worked back, a waxed wood and a thick cushion for the seat. In the 1970’s, the society was taken up by the son of Chambron who realized his own creations.
Votre Maison was created in 1949 by Jacques Chambron and Robert Guillerme when they met Emile Dariosecq, owner of a cabinetmaking workshop. Robert Guillerme graduated from the Ecole Boulle in 1934 and excels in the creation of interior furniture and in architecture. Jacques Chambron graduated from the School of Applied Arts in Reims and continued to practice as a painter-decorator in Paris after the Second World War. In the 1970s, the son of Jacques Chambron, Hervé joined the company, and began to make his own creations in 1983. Your house then became a reference brand in terms of quality furniture from the 1950s.
