Anne Hauck began collecting fine Art Deco already ten years before she opened her eponymous gallery, Anne Hauck Art Deco in 1986. Through her gallery she wanted to share her passion for Art Deco design, luxurious materials, and the quality craftsmanship epitomized by French Deco styles that captivated the first half of the 20th century.
In 1998, after opening two showrooms in Germany, Anne relocated to Los Angeles, bringing with her numerous museum-quality pieces by famous artisans of the era. She has since continued to import thousands of unique and compelling antiques while simultaneously launching her own interior design service and the Anne Hauck Collection of fully customizable, high-end fine Deco furniture, lighting, and carpets.
The location of the Anne Hauck Art Deco showroom on Melrose Ave. in the heart of the chic West Hollywood Design District makes Anne Hauck Art Deco a natural choice for Hollywood directors, producers, and set-dressers who appreciate quality and authenticity. Anne Hauck Art Deco pieces appear often on both the small and big screens, perhaps most notably in Martin Scorcese’s Oscar-winning The Aviator for which the legendary director personally selected décor from the showroom floor.
In the design world, Anne Hauck Art Deco has been featured numerous times in publications including Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, The Robb Report, and Elizabeth McMilliam’s book “Deco and Streamline Architecture in L.A.” Recognized by the design community as an expert on the subject of Art Deco, Anne proudly serves as a member of the American International Fine Art Fair Vetting Committee. Her client list has grown to include celebrities, art collectors, and interior designers both in America and worldwide.
We welcome you to our website and are looking forward to your visit in our showroom!
Anne Hauck Art Deco seeks only the most unique and one-of-a-kind quality pieces hand-crafted from the finest materials such as macassar ebony, rosewood, ivory, mother of pearl, and gold leaf. Anne continues to split her time between the U.S. and Europe. “The idea” Anne says, “is to locate and acquire unblemished original pieces that were handcrafted by the master craftsmen and women of that era. I have been collecting for over 30 years: without my exclusive sources all over Germany and France, this would be impossible today.”
The collection includes pieces by famous artisans and builders like Jean Dunand, Hoffman, Leleu, Sue et Mare, Maurice Dufrene, Mercier Freres and Jacques Emile Ruhlmann, some of which came from the mayor’s office in Paris or Lyon, or from villas of famous playwrights and conductors. Indeed, some of the pieces only narrowly escaped the mass destruction of the world wars. This rich history creates a magic surrounding the pieces that imbues ownership with meaning and life that extends far beyond design and function alone.
Anne Hauck Collection
Anne Hauck launched her own Collection line in 2003. Inspired by the antiques that she has collected throughout her life – and especially those of Jacques Emile Ruhlmann, her aim was to create high-end and fully customizable Art Deco furniture. The dimensions, woods, veneers, details and designs are all tailored to the tastes of the individual client. They can be as simple as a black lacquer side chair or feature advanced technological complications such as servo-motors employed to cleverly conceal unsightly modern necessities like flat-screen televisions, electrical outlets, or docks for digital devices.
Pieces from the Anne Hauck Collection are built through a process organized to guarantee the highest quality of materials, structure, and finish. They begin with the selection of rare and beautiful materials. Next, all work is conducted by skilled craftsmen and artisans who are formally educated in specialized areas of furniture production. The artisans work within different divisions in the factory, each purpose-built for the specific task at hand. The result is a piece that is elegant, harmonious, and ready for a lifetime of everyday enjoyment.
The dedication to our outstanding quality is evident in our attention to detail and the tradition of craftsmanship within our company. Such has become our signature within the design community.
Anne Hauck Art Deco offers all-inclusive interior design services for homes, commercial spaces and yachts grounded in Anne Hauck’s discerning eye for tailored structure and sophisticated beauty.
Anne Hauck Art Deco has accepted projects from all over the world ranging from numerous different styles like modern and contemporary to asian fusion, classical elegance and our specialty, Art Deco. Anne brings a signature touch to all projects by employing her encyclopedic knowledge of Cubism, Constructivism, and Bauhaus (International style) to design spaces that achieve balance with respect to ornamentation and abstraction, classicism and modernism.
From the very start of the project, the design team works closely with the client to achieve a totally personalized individual experience. This begins in planning and continues through rendering, proposal, sourcing, and installation.
