Jallot, Léon

(1874 - 1967)

Léon Jallot was a French cabinet maker and designer who worked in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. He started as a furniture maker in his teens, but was also trained at the École des Beaux­Arts in Paris. His son Maurice joined the office in 1921. Together they showed their work at the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels modernes in Paris. Léon retired in the 1940s and Marcel continued the business until the 1950s.
