JANUS et Cie
Founder and CEO Janice Feldman created JANUS et Cie in 1978, and over a 40-year period, she has grown her business from a single outdoor furniture showroom in the Los Angeles Pacific Design Center to a global design empire with 19 furniture showrooms throughout North America, Singapore, Sydney, and Milan, in addition to dealerships throughout the world. Janice Feldman began her art and design career by traveling throughout Europe and painting portraits that she sold to support herself. She also continued in a quest to seek out beauty, and collected and sold antiques, some of which helped initially fund her business. The JANUS et Cie brand is defined by clean lines, high-tech materials, and an aesthetic that elevates the ordinary outdoors to extraordinary in tradition, heritage, and craftsmanship. Named for the Roman god, Janus, whose face looks both to the past and present, the company is a leader in both classic outdoor furniture design and cutting-edge modernity. In 2016, Poltrona Frau Group and Haworth acquired the majority of shares of JANUS et Cie, but the company still operates independently under the direction of Janice Feldman. Today, the company offers over 6,000 products composed of furniture and accessories, including the signature Croissant Cocktail Table, Knot Chair, and Koko Line, crafted of such diverse materials as wood, leather, metal, plastics, and bamboo. Its outdoor furniture transforms a space to be innovative and functional, capturing the essence of beauty that JANUS et Cie was founded upon.
