Louis Süe (1875-1968) was a French painter, architect, designer and decorator. Süe, and the painter André Mare (1885-1932), co-founded the Compagnie des Arts Français in 1919, which designed and created early Art Deco furniture and interiors for a prestigious clientele, including Jean Patou and Helena Rubenstein. Süe also designed the interiors of two passenger ocean liners, and as a partnership Süe & Mare were respected pioneers of the early Art Deco movement.
