Son of wallpaper fabricator Felix Follot, brother-in-law of fashion designer Paul Poiret, student of Grasset, he first studied sculpture before entering la Maison Moderne of Julius Meier-Grafe in 1901 where notably he met Maurice Dufrene.
In 1923, Fallot assumed the management of the Pomone workshop of the Bon Marche [department store]
The production of Paul Follot, comprised of furniture, fabrics, various objects of interior décor, reveals a predilection for a precious art, refined, very balance, a search for a decorative effect with rigorously selected materials.
At the Exposition of Decorative Arts in 1925, Follot furnished and decorated the Pomone pavilion with very classical, architectural, tightly structured and traditional sets.
