*The origin of the Tahan House goes back to the beginning of the 19th century in Belgium, when Pierre Lambert Tahan founded a workshop producing tableware made of Spa wood. When he decided to leave Spa for Paris shortly before 1806, he became a cabinetmaker and a manufacturer of necessities. In 1825, Pierre Lambert and his son, Jean Pierre Alexandre (1813-1892), ran two factories producing the same types of objects. In 1844, Pierre Lambert Tahan ceased all activity and left the management of his store to his son. He will then completely revolutionize the organization of the company by separating the factory and the store, located at 32 rue de la Paix. One year later, he was already known as "Supplier to the King and Princes" and in 1855, he was named "Supplier to the Emperor". The Court placed a large number of orders with him for libraries, tables, pedestal tables and sets. However, Pierre Alexandre Tahan participated in the Universal Exhibitions. After the fall of the Second Empire, the House of Tahan could hardly forget the close ties it had maintained with the Emperor. In 1882, the factory ceased production and the store closed.
