The prestigious French design firm “Décoration Intérieure Moderne (DIM)” was founded just after World War I by Joubert and Mouveau with the objective of designing and manufacturing furniture and decorations. Individually or together, René Joubert, both an architect and a cabinetmaker, Georges Mouveau, a stage designer, and, starting in 1924, Philippe Petit produced standard “DIM” furniture. The pieces, in oak or walnut, are noted for their clean lines, plain style and sturdy look. In the first five years of production, they also designed “gondole” chairs, similar to Ruhlman’s. The decoration work consists mainly of thin sculpted friezes representing fruits and stylised flowers and wrought iron work.
