André Groult (27 August 1884 – 1966) was a French decorator and designer of French furniture.[1] Much of his work can be described as art deco, with curving and organic shapes, and Groult's work has been described as compromising between tradition and modernism.[2] 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.[3]

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