Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier believed furniture should be “extensions of our limbs and adapted to human functions.” Majorly known as an architect, Le Corbusier was highly influential across many fields as he used his skill in the fields of design, writing and urban planning. He did this to promote the use of modern materials and methods for bettering living conditions in cities. In 1922, Le Corbusier started working with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret, and they continuously sharing projects and ideas all their professional lives. In October 1927, a young architect named Charlotte Perriand was noticed by the two cousins, and a prolific collaboration lasted between the three designers until 1937. Their coming together birthed several amazing furniture pieces, which are still well favored till today.

Le Corbusier lounge chair [LC4]

The LC range of seating, the first results of the collaboration between Le Corbusier and his 2 colleagues, was designed in 1928. Their idea was to design chairs which would be suited for “conversation, relaxing, and sleeping”. Their collaboration went on to include some of the most prolific furniture designs in modern history. The LC4 was inspired by an 18th-centry chaise longue (“long chair”) and has become an icon of Modernist furniture pieces. Charlotte Perriand’s use of tubular steel and sleek black leather was a radical move at the time. Its exposed framework made it look like a piece of industrial equipment. The LC4 lounge chair not only looked good, it was also very comfortable, inspiring Le Corbusier to describe it as a “true relaxing machine”.

 

Features of the lc4 chair

The base of the LC4 is cast from black enamel steel that has a matte finish and is fixed. The frame, made of chrome-plated tubular steel is bent, put together and balanced on top of the stationary base. A number of elastic straps are spanned and fastened between the tubular steel pipes. This net-like web supports a cut polyurethane foam mattress and a polyester padded bolster headrest, both buckled to the frame and upholstered in black top grain Italian leather. Our replica of the LC4 Chaise Lounge adheres to the original design.

 

Where can you use the LC4 lounge sofa?

The LC4 lounge sofa in a modern home stands on its own, no matter where you place it. Even in an open plan contemporary living room, the LC4 lounge sofa can make a visual impact unlike any other piece of furniture. There is a certain unassuming boldness about this comfortable seat inspired by the classic French chaise longue. It seems to possess the area it sits in and you could be forgiven for feeling that the chair is a touch too classy for your presence sometimes! Its slim frame along with a leather seat is the perfect combination for any modern interior. You would be pleasantly surprised to know that the LC4 can fit into rooms with a variety of styles easily. The trick is to find one with a canvas or leather fabric that accentuates the color scheme or theme of your space. The LC4 lounge chair in black leather is the most popular choice with one in cow hide seeming much more at home in farmhouse, industrial and rustic spaces. Do not fret too much about the fabric that you choose as the LC4 has a interesting way of fitting in everywhere.

Check out the comfort in the lc4 sofa

One of the unpopular perks of the LC4 lounge chair is how good the chair is for those suffering from any backaches and in a world where sitting has become the root cause for most health issues, this chaise longue comes as a comforting surprise. It fits into even the smallest of spaces and there are occasions when just the LC4 lounge chair coupled with a minimal side table and floor lamp can turn a forgotten niche into a dashing reading zone that everyone in the family would enjoy. The lc4 is a perfect style icon that is worth every penny you spend on it! The LC4 was designed with comfort in mind. In it, you can sit in an upright or completely reclined position, as well as anywhere in-between, thanks to the innovative design of the frame. It sports a leather cushion headrest which is adjustable and padded with polyurethane foam to support the head, shoulder and neck. The polyurethane mattress extends the length of the chair and is supported by elastic straps which conform to the human physique.

 

Its durability is top notch

The sweeping lengths of chrome-plated tubular steel, form the seat and gives the LC4 lounge chair its graceful shape. The seat rests on a black steel cradle beneath. As the adjustable seat is made from tubular steel, it is lightweight and allows for easy adjustment or repositioning. The legs and cradle, which remains stationary, are made from hefty black enameled steel. The mattress and head rest is made from high resilience polyurethane foam and it’s upholstered in top grain Italian leather.

 

How to clean and maintain the lc4 sofa

Leather upholstery: 

Once in a while, remove dust from the leather with a damp, lint-free cloth. Small soiled portions can be gently removed with a  colorless  eraser. Liquid spills should be quickly dabbed dry and wiped off with little water. Once in a year, the leather should be treated with a special leather care product, but never with any type of strong cleaning agent. It’s advised that you only use quality leather products which do not leave any residue. Oily build-up on the leather makes it susceptible to bacteria, which can destroy the leather material. Clean the stitching with a soft brush. Make sure that your leather furniture is not positioned close to any heat sources, so that it does not dry out and become brittle or caked. In addition, we recommend that leather surfaces should not be permanently exposed to intense sunlight. Direct sunlight over an extended time period can diminish the quality of the leather. Leather can be treated occasionally with special conditioners to keep it in its original state. Liquid spills should be blotted out immediately, not wiped. For daily cleaning, dust leather with a soft cloth or feather duster.

Metal parts:

Do not use an abrasive or coarse material on the metal. Clean the chair with a mild detergent and water. Dilute in the mild detergent in water so it is not harsh on the metal. You can dip a soft toothbrush in the solution or a non-abrasive pad and use it to scrub off any residue or dirt on the chair. Dry any residual moisture with a soft, dry cloth or pad.
