L’Escalier de Cristal
Circa 1808, Marie Désarnaud opens her store in the galleries of the Palais-Royal. Owners come one after another through the years and more than 50 years later, in 1863, the store is taken by the Pannier family who decide to move the site in the new Opera district. Trends creators, Henry and Georges Pannier succeed to maintain, in the decoration field, a high quality tradition, by adapting them to the period’s trends such as the Japonisme and establish the furniture production.
