This elegant floor lamp, a design from the early 1930s by Jules Leleu, features a tapered stem in walnut--a long vertical element that unites the complementary shapes of the lamp's playful feet and unusually modern chrome-plated shade.

To our knowledge, this floor lamp is one of the first known examples of Leleu using a stand-alone metal shade.
