historical notes In 1867 Anatole Carlhian and his brother-in-law, Albert Dujardin-Beaumetz, founded an export commission business called Carlhian & Beaumetz in Paris. When the partners died they left the business to Anatole Carlhian’s sons, Paul and Andre é, ca. 1906.

Encouraged by Joseph Duveen (one of the firm’s major clients), the Carlhians had by 1914 turned the firm into a major decorating business, with workshops for painting, wallpapers, woodwork (boiserie) and cabinetmaking.

In 1930 the firm became the Soci e éte é Carlhian. In 1953 Andre é Carlhian continued as an antique dealer and his two sons, Robert and Michel, founded the Socie éte é R&M Carlhian to continue interior design and decoration. In 1975 the business was liquidated.
