Christian Mussy studied at the Ecole du Louvre and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. He has done extensive restoration work on the period rooms at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, part of the Musée du Louvre, Paris. Christian Mussy and Degroote et Mussy have long worked outside of France, from Moscow to the Middle East, from London to Los Angeles, having perfected the process of fabricating precise interiors for installation abroad. Christian Mussy has long working relationships with international architects and decorators. He is a member of the Entreprises du Patrimoine Vivant, France.

Degroote et Mussy was founded in Paris in 1951. It was first and foremost an atelier that created custom furniture and boiserie, the French term for the exquisite woodwork often found in the principal reception rooms of private homes and state properties. Since 1993, Christian Mussy has directed the Parisian atelier and further developed the firm's signature work by integrating custom-designed furniture – from classic 18th century styles to Art Deco to more modern periods – within completely-designed interiors, including boiseries or other wall-treatments, flooring, lighting, hardware, fireplace surrounds, etc.

Christian Mussy and Degroote et Mussy have the capacity and the savoir-faire to create something truly unique – like haute-couture – produced especially for the dreams and desires of each client.
