James Mont (1904 – 1974)
Lavish and tasteful describe Mont's style, whose labor intensive lacquer and gilt finishes are hallmarks of his Asian inspired modernism. A favorite among Hollywood stars and notorious figures of the underworld, Mont's pieces continue to exude bold confidence in interiors today. The ultimate showman, James Mont's flair for theatrics in dealing with his clients and several run ins with the law sometimes led to greater infamy than his glamorous, custom interiors brought fame.
Mont's work is highly sought after and collected by an elite group of aficionados who appreciate his brilliant creativity and lavish production.
