Le Corbusier designed the swivel stool LC8 in 1929 with Charlotte Perriand and like many of his releases at the Salon D’ Automne in Paris; is based on the human scale. Borne Charles Edouard Jeanneret, Le Corbusier is undoubtedly considered to be the most important Modernist chair designer in France. A spirited advocate of Modernism, Le Corbusier created a range of lounge chairs that express his ideals with great sophistication. The Le Corbusier LC8 represents the designer’s interest in exploring the structural possibilities that would be available when using tubular steel. The Le Corbusier LC8 is constructed with chrome plated tubular steel frame with upholstered back and cushion.
The materials include triple chrome plated steel frame, a swivel mechanism, 100% Imported Italian leather, and adjustable feet. This unit can also be special ordered with black frame!
The measurements are H 20″ W 18.5″ D 18.5

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.
Each high quality stainless steel frame is also imported to insure that you get only the very best resources that money can buy. Only the best Italian leather is used to construct each and every masterpiece! 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).
