CATALOGUE NOTE
Designed and executed circa 1948. The “Horace” Illuminated Room Divider with Plant Holders, executed circa 1948, is one of Jean Royère’s most playful designs. By incorporating light fixtures and plant holders into his room divider design, Royère elevated a traditionally utilitarian furniture feature to an eye-catching decorative piece. Highly popular in mid-century design, the room divider has encountered a recent revival in contemporary interior design. Royère’s Horace room divider stands out for its modern elegance and thoughtful design.
