Classic Le Corbusier Chaise Longue - LC4

LC4 Chaise Longue

One of my favorite classics!  Designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, produced by CassinaDesigned in 1928, the LC4 Chaise Longue (or “long chair” in English) was dubbed the “relaxing machine" because of the way it mirrors the body's natural curves while appearing to float above its supports. An infinite number of sitting angles are achievable with the LC4, as the moveable frame adjusts along the base, from upright to full recline. The LC4 is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassina's Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation. Made in Italy.
  • The upholstery choices include cowhide with black leather headrest; all black leather; or natural canvas with a black, amber or chocolate headrest and footer.

Indoor/Outdoor Teak Dining Chair - Verden Dining Chair

Verden Dining Chair

Danish designer Povl Eskildsen has been working with Gloster for nearly a decade, creating welcoming forms that satisfy the company’s “made for life” mantra. Possessing a deep knowledge of materials and manufacturing techniques, Eskildsen grew up in the furniture business, working alongside his father as a young boy earning pocket change. While he credits his father for teaching him about quality and craftsmanship, it was the work of Eames, Mackintosh and Wegner that inspired his love of clean, functional forms. Verden, Danish for “world,” is an indoor-outdoor collection designed with a global audience in mind; its clean, tapering lines are certain to be enjoyed on all continents year-round. Taking advantage of Gloster’s 50 years of innovation in outdoor furnishings, the Dining Chair (2012) is made of a proprietary material that is resistant to UV, mold and mildew. The result is the look of a traditional Danish paper cord seat, but in a material that will stand up to outdoor living. High-quality finger-joint construction also ensures that this collection will endure years of use. Like all teak products, Verden will develop a rich, silvery patina over time, or it can be treated with teak oil to maintain its original luster. Made in Indonesia.
