Loved the new exhibition at Maison Gerard Gallery that comes to present Maison Leleu, whose work the gallery has represented for decades. Entitled Maison Leleu: 1960's, it presents dozens of pieces of furniture created during the 50s and ‘60s as well as lighting and rugs, all designed exclusively for the Villa Medy Roc in Cap D’Antibes,
France, and all illustrate the distinctive style and approach of one of the most influential interior design companies of the 20th century. In 1957, Leleu was engaged by a prominent South American businessman, Villa Médy Roc’s owner at the time, to furnish all the public spaces. The interiors designed by Leleu for the great hall, salon, living room and dining room are considered to be the House of Leleu’s most important post–war commission.The collection has remained nearly intact until 2007, when the villa was sold.
