Jules Leleu

Graduated in an applied art school, Leleu began his career in the painting studio founded by his father and then devoted himself entirely to interior decoration and furniture production, curated by his brother Marcel, in the family business. His notoriety grew from 1925, thanks to the success of the furniture designed for the reception hall of the French ambassador to the exhibition of Decorative Arts, and from that moment Leleu received numerous assignments to design prestigious interiors, including those of large ships such as Ile de France "in 1931 and the" Normandie "in 1935. His son Andre 'took over the lead of the Maison Leleu on the death of the founder in 1961, who continued his activity until 1973. Lelu's furnishings were inspired by the style Regency and the neoclassic of the eighteenth century, which he reinterpreted and simplified in the decorative apparatus.
