Our LC Furniture Collection will add a sleek modern sophistication to your home or office! Le Corbusier, the great Swiss architect, created some of the world's most recognized classic modern furniture designs. Many of his works were created over 70 years ago, yet remain timeless in appeal today. He worked with materials considered innovative and bold in his day, materials like steel and leather, allowing his products to be made for the masses at affordable prices. This was the first sofa ever designed with the frame exposed on the outside yet structurally holding all the cushions within it. Our reproductions salute the original designer.

Charles-Edouard Jeanneret was the mastermind architect behind the beautiful Le Corbusier furniture we enjoy today. He was a pioneer in building design, with constructions on almost every continent. Many of his designs used steel and reinforced concrete extensively, which was unusual for his time. In the 1920's, Jeanneret took on the name Le Corbusier for reasons still under debate to this day. Some say he wanted a connection to a long-ago ancestor, while others insist it is a play on his childhood nickname. As his architecture grew in fame and distinction, Le Corbusier found himself frustrated with the furniture options of the day. He believed his buildings would be better complemented by gorgeous furnishings to make the most of their smooth, sleek lines. Le Corbusier's peers included some of the design greats, such as Charles Eames, Arne Jacobsen, Eileen Gray, Mies van der Rohe, and Marcel Breuer. His death in 1965 was a great blow to the art and architecture community, as well as a loss felt around the world.
At the end of the 1920s, Le Corbusier began to design furniture, and he was one of the first to work with then modern materials, which included leather and steel. Le Corbusier furniture was regarded as dramatic, ground-breaking, and pioneering in its day, as the first to focus both on efficient, effective structure, as well as fluid lines. One of his first pieces was a tubular chair made of steel, which he displayed in a Parisian home he created. He was also the first to create a sofa that left the frame exposed, yet was still able to keep all of the cushions securely situated.
