Carlo Bugatti (Born February 16, 1856 in Milan, Italy – died April 1940) was a notable decorator, architect (indeed he never applied his work into buildings), designer and manufacturer of Art Nouveau furniture, models of jewelry, and musical instruments. Father of Rembrandt Bugatti the sculptor and Ettore Bugatti the car manufacturer, he moved in 1910 to Pierrefonds where set up an atelier. His designs have a generally distinctive look and are complex and delightful.
