LC3 Grand Modele Sofa & Chair

The LC2 collection, which is extremely recognizable, has been known for its compact footprint and cushioned comfort. I’ve always felt that the sofa and chair were rather small, and not really real ‘lounge’ material, so I was quite surprised to see the LC3 collection with its much larger proportions (it’s like the granddaddy of all modernist sofas). This would definitely be an investment, but man, it looks comfortable.

“The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 collections as “cushion baskets” which they designed in 1928 as a modernist response to the traditional club chair. With cushions held in place without being tethered to the frame, the idea was to offer all the comfort of a padded surface while applying the elegant minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style…
The differences among the groups are that the LC2 is more compactly scaled, and the LC3 has down-wrapped cushions that create a softer look and feel…
Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassina”s Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina in Italy under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation.”

(Other colors available for a slightly higher price.)

Damier adjustable sofa, leather

So, this isn’t exactly something you might buy on a whim, (due to the unwieldly size and price tag) but it’s a pretty great piece if you have the space for it. It’s upholstered in leather and has two independently articulated movements on each of the four sections. This creates the ability to create a very configurable seating arrangement.

FlexibleLove 16 Chair

I am in love with this chair. Named for it’s ability to be a sort of “flexible love seat”, it incorporates two of my favorite things: Sustainability (made wholly from recycled paper and wood products) and configurability depending on your needs (expands to 720 cm from 22 cm).

This chair uses a honeycomb structure to expand out and can hold up to 16 people and support up to 4224 lbs. You can see it action here.

$799.95

Currently sold out but taking pre-orders.

Barbarella Sofa

I collect vintage interior design/decorating books, and a particular favorite I found at a university library sale: Bloomingdale’s Book of Home Decorating, published in 1972. The first picture you see as you flip through its sepia tinged pages is of a sunken living room, resembling a cave, with white fur covering almost every surface, from the floor to the walls to the ceiling. It’s so far over-the-top that I love it, that is what was so fun about decorating in the Seventies!

Imagine my surprise as I was shopping around this morning to find this amazing sofa from cheeky design firm Moooi. If you happen to have a sunken living room, I highly suggest you purchase this sofa in conjunction with several yards of faux fur to complete this designer look. The link below provides some inforamtion with more to come.

Couchoid Studio Sofa

Blu Dot is one of those companies who can’t seem to misstep; every product they introduce becomes an instant favorite of mine. The new Couchoid upholstery group is no exception. A recessed chrome base makes the solid sofa appear to float, and the dense seat, back, and arms have just enough detail to avoid looking like a big block of foam. The only problem is that I don’t think any pillows would look good on this, so let’s hope it’s as comfortable as it is striking.

Hardwood frame, high density foam. Upholstered in a leather alternative in dark brown,
white, or robin’s egg blue with contrasting stitching.

H 28″ (Seat height 15″) x W 75″ x D 34″ (Seat depth 24″)

Vega Chaise, Sofa & Ottoman

“The Vega Collection (2005) provides a unique solution for environments used for socializing, lounging and sleeping. Created by designers Busk & Hertzog, Vega consists of a multifunctional Sofa, Chaise and Ottoman. When a larger Sofa is needed, the Chaise and Ottoman are ready to oblige; slide the pieces together to create the required size. Should a sectional be in order, three or more pieces can be quickly combined. For further flexibility, the arm of the sofa can be positioned on either side and changed on a whim. The Sofa and Chaise transform into comfortable sleepers by sliding the seats – which rest on metal bases with internal tracks – and folding down the backs. Use a flat sheet for best fit. Two down pillows are included with the Sofa and one with the Chaise. Made in Denmark.”
