Le Corbusier was born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret in Switzerland in 1887. He was a tireless proselytizer, addressing the public in his own magazine, exhibitions he designed and pamphlets he wrote. Dressed like a bureaucrat with his horn-rimmed glasses and dark suits, Le Corbusier was truly an artist, performing numerous paintings and sculptures. His greatest work includes the design of the city of Chandigar in India. This precise high quality reproduction of the original was designed for the 1929 Salon d’Automne.
This exclusive classic masterpiece is made out of 100% Italian leather! The Le Corbusier Grande Comfort series was originally designed for the 1929 Salon d’Automne. Following the example of the LC1 Sling Chair, the LC2 Petite series reverse the standard structures of sofas and chairs by having frames externalized. It is a modern classic.
The specs for this sofa are 93″W x 29″D x 27″H; SH: 15″. All cushions are made of multi-density foam for plush comfort and firm support. Thick, resilient foam pillows rest on top of the frame and provide the kind of sumptuousness comfort found only in the finest overstuffed conventional chairs. The leather is hand-selected, expertly sewn and piped. All lines are clean, straight, and precise. This piece boasts incredible quality, style and comfort at an unbelievable price. Matching sofa and loveseat are available, too.
All of our Le Corbusier classics are made of 100% Italian leather, manufactured in Italy, by the Mastrotto Group. Based in Arzignano (Vicenza, Italy), the Mastrotto Group is the gold standard for world wide hide production and one of the most important global sources for the creation of upholstery, furniture, and leather goods. They are the exclusive source for all of the leather used in Mercedes Benz and BMW automobiles.
We can produce this chair in Black, Bright White, Camel, Chocolate, Ivory, Black, Red, Saddle Tan. Bordeaux, Cognac, Cappuccino, Golden Tan, Hunter Green, Navy Blue, Parchment, Tangerine, Wasabi, Cranberry, Toffee, or Whiskey in your choice of three different leather grades including Deluxe, Primo, and Exquisite.
Deluxe is our highly durable Top Grain Leather that is grain-corrected and color pigmented. The grain surface is slightly abraded to remove imperfections before a protective surface coating is applied. A decorative leather-grain pattern is then embossed into the surface for a finished look.
Primo is a top grain Semi-Aniline Leather that has just a small amount of pigment or clear finish added to its surface, thus allowing the natural unique characteristics of the hide to still show through while offering some of the benefits of color consistency and increased durability.
Exquisite is the softest and most expensive leather. This Full-Aniline Leather is left in its most natural/naked state after the aniline-dye process. The leathers reveal different grain patterns, healed scars, and other natural markings. Dyes are absorbed differently between each hide so there may be tonality differences in each piece of leather. Full Aniline means that it is UNPROTECTED with no pigments or top coatings sprayed on after the aniline-dye process, which keeps the leather in the most natural and soft state possible.
This top grain leather is aniline dyed and turned in drums to soften it. Then, a finish coat is added to protect the hide against stains and fading. Our top grain leather has a fine and supple hand. We feel that it is an excellent combination of softness, durability, consistency of color, resistance to sunlight, and ease of maintenance.
We ship factory direct so that you don’t have to pay a middle man for a mark up. This means you get the wholesale price and a great product at unbeatable prices! We can produce this piece in a rainbow of ultra high quality leather colors, or your choice of COM (customers own material) or COL (customers own leather).
