The Veronese story begins in 1931 – the heyday for the decorative arts in Paris. Following the launch of the first International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts in 1925, the City of Light witnessed an ever-increasing demand for distinct yet modern high-end designs. The late Mr. Barbier, passionate about the decorative arts, recognized the opportunity and established The House of Veronese. Seeing the potential for glass blowing to meet the demands of the 1930s market for exclusive modern design, Mr. Barbier set out to create Murano glass decorative art within the style of modern French design. Barbier’s desire to influence art with art inspired him to name his company The House of Veronese.
In the early years, Barbier’s determination to fuse the prestige of the traditional Murano glass techniques with modern French design inspired him to work closely with renowned architects such as Andre Arbus – a leader in the field of 20th century decorative arts with a reputation for innovative designs. Given Arbus’s renewed interest in the Neoclassical style – but with a fresh twist – and his love of luxurious materials, he was a perfect match for Veronese.
André Arbus was a French furniture designer, sculptor and architect. Arbus exhibited his work at the 1925 International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts, where he won the silver medal for a lowboy he designed with Marc Saint-Saëns. Meanwhile, his work was also exhibited at the Société des artistes décorateurs and the Salon d'Automne. In 1925 André Arbus began to achieve the great success he deserved. He started exhibiting beyond Toulouse—at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs, the Exposition des Arts Décoratifs, the Salon d'Automne, the gallery L’Epoque in Paris, and, most notably, at the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts, where he won a medal for an innovative piece he designed with Marc Saint-Saëns.
In 1932 Arbus moved to Paris, and in 1935, a year after winning the esteemed Premier Prix Blumenthal, he opened his own gallery. It was here, on the Avenue Matignon, that André Arbus built a client base of wealthy collectors and a reputation as one of the finest and most interesting furniture makers in all of France. less
