Established following World War I, French design firm Décoration Intérieure Moderne (DIM) combined the talents of architect and cabinetmaker René Joubert, stage designer Georges Mouveau, and, beginning in 1924, Philippe Petit. In addition to furniture that was innovative in its spare elegance and solid construction, DIM designed and produced decorative works that included lamps, mirrors, and carpets – some of the group’s carpets, in particular, were directly inspired by Paul Follot and his championing of the era’s emergent Art Deco style.
