Light attractive patina on the thick, supple and high-quality (original) dark gray leather cushions which are wrapped by tubular chrome frames, these fantastic extra-wide 'LC3' lounge chairs are suitable for interior designers and their most demanding collector clients. The gorgeous leather patina adds a laid-back casualness ideal for those who love aged leather and the warmth that age provides in their home. If you want the most comfortable and sizable club chair to sink your heinie into, these Le Corbusier for Cassina (signed) LC3's are the chairs for you (and of course, your heinie). Large and in-charge, the 'LC3 - Grand Modèle' is the pinnacle in living grand; grand in style and grand in comfort and substantially wider than the LC2 variation of similar design. The LC3 was designed in 1928 by Le Corbusier; his cousin and colleague Pierre Jeanneret; and Charlotte Perriand. These elegant and sophisticated LC3 club chairs by Cassina would work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern, Bauhaus, or Danish modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Post-Modern room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an Apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Consider using as side chairs, dining, cafe or breakfast table chairs, bedside chairs, fireside chairs, dressing or changing room chairs, hallway chairs, entryway or mudroom chairs, nursing or reading chairs, conference room chairs, office or desk chairs, guest chairs, lobby chairs, lounge chairs or occasional chairs ideal in virtually any setting. More About the Design (From Cassina's website): The LC3, historically known as the Fauteuil Grand Confort, was designed in 1928 by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand as part of their revolutionary interiors project. The first prototypes were made to furnish Villa Church, owned by an American couple living in Paris, and the next year a selection was displayed – with much scandal - at the Salon d’Automne at the Grand Palais. Each architect had designed a specific version for the exhibit, the production of which they personally financed, based on their individual ideas and tastes. Their final choice was to show the Le Corbusier version. Following the exhibition the three architects took their personal prototypes home: Charlotte Perriand to her apartment in Montparnasse, Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret to rue Jacob in the Latin Quarter, until 1934 when Le Corbusier moved to his new apartment in rue Nungesser-et-Coli. (From Wikipedia) Grand Comfort is a cube-shaped high armchair, whose leather cushions are held in a chrome-plated steel corset. The LC-2 and LC-3 were referred as Cusion Baskets by Le Corbusier. They are more colloquially referred to as the petit confort and grand confort due to their respective sizes. In popular culture: The LC-2 (and similar LC-3) have been featured in a variety of media, notably the Maxell "blown away" advertisement. At the 2010 Apple event, the then CEO Steve Jobs used a Classic LC-3 chair while introducing the iPad. They are a permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern Art. In the modern day BBC adaptation of Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock), Sherlock Holmes sits in a LC-3, while Dr. Watson sits in a traditional Club chair. MEASUREMENTS:: H 24.5" x W 39" x D 29" Seat Height: 17" Seat Depth: 21" CONDITION: Good vintage condition with age and use related wear including scratches, scuffs and attractive patina. One seat cushion has a patched leather strip in the middle (see photos). Some exposed piping along edges. Attractive early production year pair, ideal for a vintage setting.

    By Cassina, Mario Bellini
    Located in Los Angeles, CA
    A beautiful black leather Mario Bellini Cab lounge chair, Model #414, signed Cassina, designed in the 1970s. These fine examples of the cab line by Mario Bellini for Cassina are classic staples for luxury interior designers and collectors alike, these lounge variations of the design are larger and deeper than the similar dining armchair, and have the addition of the seat cushion. Signed underneath with Cassina embossing to the leather. Mario Bellini described the 1970s bestselling design for the Cab collection as “This was a new kind of chair, constructed totally out of leather, much cloned since then.” and is now a signature piece in Cassina’s Contemporanei collection. Cab was the first-ever chair to feature a free-standing leather structure, inspired by how our skin fits over our skeleton. The upholstery consists of sixteen pieces of saddle leather. They then undergo fourteen discrete procedures, again by hand. The pieces are sewn together only when their outer edges have been trimmed to ensure a perfect fit. Once assembled, the cover is attached to the chair’s steel skeleton and held in place by means of a zipper fastening as in a bespoke tailored...

  • Pair of Club Chairs by Claudio Salocchi for Sormani Italy, c 1970, Signed
    By Claudio Salocchi, Sormani
    Located in Los Angeles, CA
    This newly reupholstered pair of club chairs by Claudio Salocchi for Sormani, circa 1970s, features graceful chrome frames with nubby white bouclé fabric. Signed with 1960s/ 1970s Sormani label as shown in photo gallery. *Note, we have the matching sofa available in another listing. The graceful frames share a design quality with Cassina's LC2 / LC3 design by Le Corbusier, as they are 'buckets of cushions' in similar fashion and comfort. However these Sormani lounge chairs feature some unique subtle details, such as the slight "twist" in the rear legs (see photos). Signed with a Sormani label, this particular rare design is attributed to Claudio Salocchi. While there were several other famous designers who created works for Sormani in this time period, the style best matches Salocchi's work. For collectors looking for something unique and rare within a collection of 1960s/ 1970s Italian designs, this pair of easy chairs are an amazing opportunity. These Cassina LC2 / LC3 style chairs...
