Brands Jules Wabbes by General Decoration
General Decoration (GEDE), has been directed since the death of its creator in 1974 by the latter’s wife, Marie Wabbes, who has always believed in the interest of these products, but who had no time to deal with it alone. Reinvigorated in 2014 by the arrival of Vincent and Caroline Colet to its head, in close contact with the Wabbes family. The company is now a reference to the production of Wabbes ‘s metal designs created in the ’50s and ’60s.
Jules Wabbes had to work with the best craftsmen and the best suppliers. The foundation of GEDE, after that of the Mobilier Universel in 1958, was imposed to maintain a semi-artisanal production of the best quality. Indeed, metal objects once cast at the foundry are assembled and finished by hand. Objects published by GEDE require highly technical skills. Everything is done in Belgium.
