Indeed, this textile designer's rare audacity is still eclipsed by the most important interior designers of the time: Jourdain, Mallet-Stevens, Chareau, Herbst, Printz, Klotz, Dominique, Dupré-Lafon, etc. to whom she nonetheless supplied wall coverings and rugs.

A founding member of the Union des Artistes Modernes (UAM), she defended the values of their common causes. The critic Léandre Vaillat even saw in her the « heart of this new group » : a woman with a clear discourse, whose work consisted of obviousness and simplicity.
