Iconic Charlotte Perriand Chairs to Add “Wow Factor” to Your Home

Charlotte Perriand Furniture: Understanding How They Help Every Limb Relax

Modernizing an old space is easy with Charlotte Perriand and Le Corbusier’s furniture. The pieces created in this brand have a simple, elegant, and very modern twist. The catch is that each piece of furniture has the most basic form in which you can feel the comfort because their structure coincides with the position of your body at rest. The design understands how to create luxurious comfort with the basic simplicity of structure. Arts and sciences worked together to bring out the unique but remarkable quality of these furniture pieces.

The Designer behind Le Corbusier furniture

Le Corbusier is a Swiss architect who created the Le Corbusier brand. Having seen the need for new designs of furniture in his job, he decided to make his own. He and his team first launched the brand in Paris in 1928. The Salon de Autumne is the birthplace of the Le Corbusier brand.

Later, his cousin Charlotte Perriand joined him in his venture. He also introduced simple designs that go well with Le Corbusier’s modern furniture.  They study how the human limbs move and what is the most comfortable position at rest. This is a new way to design furniture since most of the designers, at that time, only consider the aesthetic factor of each piece they create. They took Thoret to manufacture their designs.

The Iconic Designs of Le Corbusier furniture:

Many home designers now use the modern design furniture of Le Corbusier. They have several favorite pieces that you can see in most contemporary spaces. Because of their ever inevitable presence, they have reached iconic status. These pieces are:

  • The LC-1 Chair. This has metal rectangular support on each side with thin cushion leather that runs along the back to the seat. The slim metal supports are shinny and uncomplicated. This design is every inch a modern Le Corbusier chair. This is one of the earliest designs launched in 1928.
  • Living Room Sofas. You can see the shadow of the chair which Le Corbusier designed here. The seats are thick cushioned. You can already experience comfort simply by looking at it.


  • Le Corbusier Chaise. This is a leather furniture piece that is inclined like a dentist’s chair. A long sausage pillow is placed under the nape to relax the sitter from stress. The curved and sloping extension along the legs can dissolve every ache in your calves. You can see these chaises in most of the modern living rooms or industrial offices.


  • LC4 Chaise Longue. (Layout: Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand) First introduced in 1928, the Cassina LC4 is also, in the words of Le Corbusier himself,’ a relaxing server’. Comprising two distinct elements – the foundation and the chair – the chaise longue was created in such a manner in which the chair can slide across the foundation to offer you an infinite variety of seating places. The shape mirrors the body’s natural curve while’floating’ over the supports.

The frame is finished in polished chrome, or matte black enamel, using a matte black enamel steel foundation. The chair mat is completed in ponyskin or cowskin using a dark leather headrest, black leather with black leather headrest, or particular beige canvas (normal, dark brown, or black headrest and footrest).

This iconic furniture ensures your comfort through close observation of how your body can completely relax.
