Jules Leleu began his career in the family decorative painting business, later opening a Paris gallery in 1924, before winning a grand prize at the 1925 Exposition Industrielle et Arts Decoratifs.

His furniture design demonstrates his insistence on precision craft and quality materials. The simple, sleek lookmade him a guiding light of 20th century modernism.
