Bauhaus Modern - Mid Century Modern - Modern Classics Furniture Reproductions - Factory Direct
One of the most influential of 20th century architects, Chareli-Edouard Jeanneret, who chose to be know as “Le Corbusier”, was also responsible for some of the Modern Movements best-known furniture. In collaboration with designer Charlotte Perriand and his architect cousin Pierre Jeanneret, he helped create machine age classics such as the LC2 “grand confort” armchair, the Basculant Sling chair and the chaise lounge chair. Free from any form of decoration, these tubular steel designs embody relaxed and timeless elegance.
Our reproductions of the Le Corbusier Sofa includes four models: the LC2, LC3, LC3-Down Feathers, and the Grande Confort. Each Sofa frame is manufactured using high gauge tubular stainless steel. The frame is polished to a mirror finish with mitered frame corners ground to a soft radius. The feet have adjustable height glides. The webbing is 2" nylon with hooks to hold it the frames. We use full-grain, 100% aniline-dyed leather on all visible cushion surfaces. Inside each cushion is high resilient - high density polyurethane foam. A layer of Dacron Fiber Fill is added and foam densities are adjusted for additional sitting comfort. Feathers seat cushions may be orderd for an additional charge, or upgrade to the LC3-Down Feathers for the best alternative to the Cassina style sofa.
A Modern Classic Furniture exclusive! We are now making a hybrid of the LC3 Grande Sofa: we are fabricating the sofa with taller legs. This hybrid sofa sits 2.5 inches higher off the floor than the "official" style sofa, so that the seat height is about 17 inches, instead of the standard 15.5 inches.
