LC5 Le Corbusier Sofa Bed Chaise

LC5 Le Corbusier Sofa Bed Chaise

Designed by Le Corbusier the LC5 is a 3-seat sofa with polished chrome plated steel frame that converts to a single bed by pivoting the back cushions over the back rod (see gallery images below). The LC5 sofa features a custom mechanism that quickly converts this piece from a 3 seat deluxe sofa to a twin bed. The LC5 features a polished, stainless steel frame and polyurethane and polyester cushions with removable covers in top grade Italian leather. We also can special order this model in Primo Semi-Aniline Leather as an upgrade option for only $400 more!

The LC5 is a multi purpose unit that serves as a sofa, day bed, and can also be used as a convertible sofa for overnight guests. In 1934, Le Corbusier set out to renovate his Paris flat, and from that endeavor emerged the LC5.F Sofa, a sleek, convertible bench supported by a skeleton of polished chrome-plated steel.

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.

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. Our premium top grain leather hides are aniline dyed and carefully turned in specially designed drums to soften them. Then a finish coat is added to protect the surfaces against all stains and fading. This top grain leather has a sublime butter soft hand feel. It is both resistance to sunlight, and very easy to maintain. This product offers an excellent combination of softness, durability and consistency. Not only is this leather supple and luxurious, it can outlast fabric up to four times longer. It is the highest quality part of the hide, and this top grain leather is derived from the uppermost layer of a hide. This leather is also known as semi-aniline or aniline plus.

Frame: Stainless steel frame, polished to mirror shine. Unlike competitors’ chrome plated version, our solid steel frame will not rust nor chip. Unlike inferior, lower quality versions with open joints and exposed screws, all joints are fully welded, sealed and sanded.

Our cushion construction features a custom system. Cushions are made of multi-density foam, layered for the highest plush comfort and support. Manufacturers Warranty of 1 Year against defects or workmanship errors.

This is a classic masterpiece made out of 100% Italian leather. Our Le Corbusier LC5 is a modern masterpiece. The cushions are made of multi-density foam for plush comfort and firm support. The leather is hand-selected, expertly sewn and piped. The lines are clean, straight and precise. Incredible quality, style and comfort at an unbelievable price.

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 Whisky 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).
