A little about the designer: 
Andre Sornay
A French Designer who, I feel, has not been as popular as his contemporaries - Le Corbusier, Francis Jourdain, Eileen Gray etc. I consider him one of the finest designers who contributed considerably to the 1920s French modern art and architecture movement.

PS: will try to showcase a few more of his designs when possible :)
