The Roméo brand is above all a taste in decor, the decorative arts and crafts. At 208 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, the styles may be diverse but they are all eclectic, opulent and fantastic, with a uninhibited approach to coordination, and guided by a quest for excellence.
This legendary Parisian house, will present at this sale over 1500 items including sculptures, furniture, glassware, tableware, ceiling and wall lights, carpets and fabrics, all illustrating the eclectic style of Maison Roméo created by the interior designer Claude Dalle, known for a style of decor and a commitment to the decorative arts.
Claude Dalle, between myth and reality
Affected by various cultural influences, Claude Dalle, a discreet and enigmatic figure in the world of interior design, founded the Maison Roméo on the principles of extravagance, juxtaposition, eclecticism and French expertise.
After working in a warehouse, he started to produce furniture designs in the 1960s before taking over the Guérin furniture house founded in 1830, whose insignia still adorns the walls.
His expertise and taste in decoration soon attracted an international clientele. Interior designer for the first Algerian ambassador in Paris, Claude Dalle went on to undertake projects around the world.
The Maison Roméo, from crafts to the Decorative Arts
An admirer of Charles André Boulle and the Louis XIV style, Claude Dalle combined a purity of style with sophisticated pieces of furniture. Combining Boulle with Versace provides the ultimate surprise and has been greatly admired. The Maison Roméo, is also renowned for bespoke French creations that are stunningly original and highly contemporary.
This opulent style and emphasis on craftsmanship is not only evident in the choice of the finest materials and fabrics but also in the highly prestigious and original collaborations undertaken by Roméo. The Maison Roméo has always worked with the best fabric manufacturers and houses such as Tassinari & Chatel – Lelievre Paris, Pierre Frey, Missoni, Houles and Versace.
This is illustrated by his singularly diverse style encompassing contemporary opulence, royal grandeur and a highly modelled orientalism. The essence of Roméo can be summed up with one word: perfection.
