a momentary vignette | a brief, beautiful glimpse of architecture, design, and art!


chaise longue
August 28

Designed in 1928 by architect Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, and Charlotte Perriand, the chaise longue is an icon of modern furniture design. Constructed of a tubular steel frame, machine fabricated components, and featuring an exotic variety of leather finishes, the chaise longue epitomized the aesthetic purity of the International Style. Manufactured by Thonet and Embru in the early 1930s, the chaise longue (also referred to as chaise 'lounge') is still an enduring symbol of modern furniture design some 70 years after its creation.
