The brothers are listed by Denise Ledoux-Lebard, in Le Mobilier Français du XIXe Siècle, lists Haentges Frères, Immeubles Industriels, at the Paris address in 1883. Little else is known about the firm although they made good quality case and seat furniture in the Louis XVI style, especially bedroom suites. In the early 20th century there are known examples of their work in the Art Deco style and they were still listed in the Annuaire de la curiosité et des beaux- arts in 1937.
