  • Description
    Born in 1883 into a family of artisans and artists in Boulogne-sur-Mer in Northern France, Jules Leleu was one of the fathers of French Art Deco design.
    Famous for tempering Modernism with classical lines, Jules Leleu fought in the Air Force during World War I and then returned home to open a gallery, Maison Leleu. A year later in 1925, he exhibited at the Exposition Industrielle et Arts Decoratifs where he won the grand prize. His fame grew steadily thereafter, and he went on to design the ocean liners SS Ile de France and SS Normandie, along with several French Embassies around the world and the Grand Salon of the Ambassadors at the Society of Nations in Geneva.
    Distinguished by a sleek distinctive style and bold techniques, Leleu remains one of the world's greatest designers.
    After his death on July 11, 1961, in Paris, France, his sons, André and Jean, and his daughter, Paule, took over the family business.
