1880   The firm of Jansen was founded in Paris at 9 rue Royale by Jean-Henri Jansen (1854-1928)
1900   The firm was restricted to producing period interiors that matched the ambitions and tastes of their mainly conservative clientele which included families such as the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts and King Leopold of Belgium
1936   Leadership of Stéphane Boudin (1888-1967) transformed Maison Jansen from the constraints of a traditional decorating house into the most prestigious and in-demand décorateur du jour (clients include Chips and Lady Honor Channon at Belgrave Square, Lady Baillie at Leeds Castle, Mrs Ronald Tree [Nancy Lancaster] at Ditchley Park and John F. Kennedy at The White House)
1961   Boudin retires; the equally talented Pierre Delbeé (1900-1974) assumes the rôle of senior decorator. He establishes what is known now as the Jansen look: a union of 18th century French hôtel particulier historicism, 1920s timeless Hollywood theatricality and English country house subtlety. His projects include the Elysée Palace, the Shah of Iran's tented palace at Persepolis to celebrate 2,500 years of continuous rule, and the Agnellis at La Léopolda, Villefranche-sur-Mer.
