Herbeau - Founded 1857 From chamber pots and wooden buckets to the gleaming tubs and toilets of today, the  history of Herbeau has become synonymous with the evolution of the kitchen and bath. Louis Herbeau 1826 - 1907 Lionel Herbeau 1971 Jean Herbeau 1926 - 1999 Maurice Herbeau 1899 - 1960 Desire Herbeau 1868 - 1964

In the 1950's, Jean Herbeau decided to expand the company's kitchen line. Trained as an

architect, Jean initially designed a kitchen faucet. Instead of using a standard lever or cross handle, Jean fashioned the handle to resemble the gearshift of a car, specifically the prized 1904 DeDion-Bouton automobile driven by his father, Desire Herbeau.
