The Corbusier Lounge Chair (also known as the LC4 lounge chair/recliner) is one of the most iconic modern furniture pieces to exist today. Designed by Charlotte Perrirand of the Le Corbusier Studio, it’s a chair that is unique in form, stature, and aesthetics without compromising the ergonomics and functionality of a recliner at all. Further, we’ll be looking at 7 paces that you can feature this chair in with the utmost panache:
On the terrace
The thing about modern contemporary homes is that the spaces have evolved over time. Tiny balconies, terraces, and bay-windows have all become more civilized – more closed off. In this regards, the Corbusier Lounge Chair would be the perfect piece of furniture to feature on them. If you look at this image, you’ll see how the sturdy aesthetic of the recliner couples well with the set of end tables and divan to make the covered terrace the perfect place to host both private and public entertainment ventures.
In a personal library
The Corbusier Lounge Chair would make a totally relevant addition to a personal library. Its contours have been especially designed to accommodate the human body in a fully relaxing pose, which would be great when reading a book. Of course, it’s not the ideal chair for some hands-on researching, which is why you’d have to pair it with something that is. The library in this image showcases exactly how you can place both the lc4 recliner and preferred work chair in a single space while contributing to the overall ambiance.
Beside your “view” windows
Any window in your home that provides an excellent view of the world outside could be categorized in this genre. The Corbusier Lounge Chair could be placed beside them – oriented at the perfect viewing angle so that you can sit back, relax, and enjoy all that you can see. Occasionally, it could be paired up with a floor lamp or an end table. This placement looks especially incredible in hotel rooms with windows that look over the neighborhood.
An accent piece in the living room
Arguably, the most common and widely attributed placement of the Corbusier Lounge Chair is as an accent piece in the living room. It’s usually placed at the periphery of the room – adjacent to the couch, so that its unique form can stand out even more in contrast to the sofa, coffee table, and other furniture. It’s a great placement idea – especially when you want to make a statement in your living rooms. The set-up featured in this image is quite a great example of how to accomplish it.
A see-through window
This type of a placement for the Corbusier Chaise Lounge works best when you’re going for a retail or commercial setting. With retails, it could be a furniture prop for the rest of the shop merchandise. With commercial settings, the recliner could be used as a resting place for workers to relax during their break. Alternately, it could be used in airport transit waiting lounges as well – especially placed against a foreground of the runway or tarmac seen through an oversized window.
Seating in an apartment
High-rise apartments are notorious for a lack of proper and adequate real-estate, which is why there are very few rest-work spaces in them. However, the perfect anthropometry of the Corbusier Chaise Lounge makes it a dual work and resting seat in its own right. You can place it where ever you want in your apartment, then lie down and either rest or work on it. It could be put next to the balcony windows, in the living room, in your reading nook, or virtually any left-over space that you have in the apartment.
An executive office accessory
Office life is changing these days. People don’t work 9-5 jobs anymore. There is more creative liberty and part of that is changing and customizing the space to make it more welcoming, relaxing, and ergonomic. This is why the Corbusier Lounge Chair would be an excellent addition to contemporary office spaces. It can be placed as a statement accent piece in the office that contrasts with the rest of the furniture. You can simply lie down and take a break on it when the workload gets too much.
All of these placement ideas for the Corbusier Chaise Lounge tackle different genres of spaces and you can make them even more iconic and noteworthy with the help of the LC4 recliner.
