Jules Wabbes (19191974)
Jules Wabbes founded General Decoration (in French, Général Decoration) in 1969 in Brussels. Since then, the company has manufactured and retailed metal accessories exclusively designed by Jules Wabbes.
Our set of elegant and functional objects, essential to any interior, was designed by the Belgian designer throughout his career. This collection was part of his general vision for designing interiors as a refined and coherent ensemble. The only thing that mattered to Jules Wabbes was the sincere expression of quality in every details.
The level of craftsmanship and the use of the very best materials are the genuine signature of Jules Wabbes. Each General Decoration accessory is handmade in metal – bronze, brass or steel – all materials favoured by Wabbes for their resistance and nobility.
We are still producing each of his objects using the exact same materials he used, crafted in small quantities by artisans in Belgium. Each General Decoration metal object is then stamped to certify of its authenticity.
