André Groult (27 August 1884 – 1966) was a French decorator and furniture designer.[1], and one of the most prominent figures of the Art Deco style.[2] His work featured curving and organic shapes,and extremely rich materials. His work has been described as compromising between tradition and modernism.[3] For the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in 1925, he designed a woman's bedchamber with a pink and gray palette. The room featured tended walls of Soie stitching. The furniture in the room was rounded and covered in natural Galuchat.[4]

In 1935, Groult designed the furnishings of the first-class cabins on the ocean liner SS Normandie.
