Design classic (9) – LC4 chaise longue

Well haaappy Friday peeps, what are you up to this weekend?  We have a couple of dinners with friends planned, some climbing (if the storms hold off) and a junk boat trip on Sunday, can’t wait!

Anyhoo, so I thought I’d round up the week with Le Corbusier’s iconic LC4 chaise longue:


What. A. Stunner.

Designed in 1928 by the Swiss-French Architect/Designer Le Corbusier, in collaboration with Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, and manufactured by Cassina, this beautiful piece of furniture comes with a fully adjustable chrome/matte black frame and an upholstery choice of ponyskin, cowhide, black leather or beige canvas.  I believe the official distributors are Design Within Reach for the US, and Chaplins for the UK.

Just check out these b.a.n.a.n.a.s inspiration pics, LOVE!

I think this last one is a fakey though, doesn’t look quite right…in fact, not right at all, kind of like the love child of an LC4 and a Barcelona chair.  Hum.

They do cost a pretty penny I’ll admit, but deffo add a certain je ne sais quoi to any scheme.  I quite fancy getting my hands on one of the cow hide puppies one day, that’s for sure.

Happy weekend all!

      Yeh I know, something’s gone wrong with that last one – looks more like a Barcelona chair. And if the hubby’s on board, that sounds like the perfect excuse to go shopping…!
