French sculptor and designer Jules Leleu was born in 1883 in Boulogne-sur-Mer, France. He studied at the Academie des Beaux-Arts there and also at the Ecole des Arts Applique in Paris. By 1901 he and his brother, Marcel, had taken over the family painting business and Jules was working as an interior designer. After World War I Jules established his own interior design studio in Paris and created furniture in a classical, lavish Art Deco style through the 1920s. In the 30s he embraced the simpler more modern style and created his own more restrained look. Leleu had a long and productive career that lasted through the 1950s and he showed his design work at the salons in Paris beginning in 1922.
