About Jules Leuleu (1883-1961)
A designer and ensemblier, Jules Leleu was one of the key authors of the Art Deco movement. While he did not win the international fame of such contemporaries as Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann and Jean-Michel Frank, Leleu had a longer career and was easily their peer in the conception of trim, refined furniture forms and in the use of the opulent materials — from lacquer and ivory to sharkskin and exotic woods.
