The Le Corbusier sofa set series was originally designed in 1928 for the Maison La Roche house in Paris. The design is the modernist response to the traditional club chair. The series comes in a smaller version referred to as the LC2 and a larger version known as the LC3 Corbusier considered more appropriate for practical living purposes. Remarkably comfortable, Le Corbusier often referred to the pieces as "cushion baskets." A striking feature of the Corbusier LC3 is the externalized metal frame supporting the base, extending as the legs and running the entire length of the piece. Its not just the front of the LC3 Le Corbusier that is attractive, the metal frame work means design detail from the sides and back allowing for easy placement even in the middle of a room. The Le Corbusier LC3 set is often used in a group of 2 chairs (1 seat version) and a single sofa or love (2 or 3 seat versions).
