Mercier Freres was a distinguished French design studio and furniture manufacturer located in the heart of the Parisian furniture district at 100 Saint-Antoine. It was created in 1828 by André Mercier and closed in 1985. Recognized as one of the leading French design firms, Mercier Freres specialized in styling and customized furniture, and provided many European courts and Eastern royalty, including the Spanish crown and Persian royal family. They exhibited at the Exposition des produits de l'industrie Française in 1844 and 1849, and participated in most of the major international exhibitions of the latter half of the century.
