Specialising in lighting and bronze works of art Maison Charles was established in Paris by Ernest Charles in 1908. The company was taken over by Emile Albert Charles in 1923. Nine years later Emile's brother Pierre joined the business and the company began trading under the name Charles Freres. In 1959 Emile's two sons joined. Jean was a graduate from the school of boulle and Jacques was a graduate from applied arts. The company was known as Charles & Fils

​In 1960 Maison Charles aquired Maison Pierre Fargette – a long established Parisian lighting design house. During this period Christyane Charles (Jean's wife) created many signature pieces in a fresh new style including well known lamps such as the Ananas (pineapple), Epi de Maïs (corncob), Pomme de Pin (pine cone).
