Le Corbusier LC4 Chaise Lounge, White Aniline Leather

Are you familiar with the term "Full Grain Aniline dyed Leather"? This chair is made of 100% Aniline Leather. It is the highest grade available but rarely used outside of licensed & original versions as it cost much more. It is soft, durable & supple with the color going all the way through it thus hiding scratches and wear. If the chair does not specifically say “Full Grain Aniline Leather”, it is 100% “Grain corrected leather”. Most, if not all available online including ebay are grain corrected. This means a plastic poly has been skimmed over the top and an artificial leather grain stamped into the poly surface.

Full Grain Aniline Italian Leather VS Italian Leather - A quick must read.

100% Italian Leather, what it is and what it isn't.

When the specifications of the furniture in question state that it is made with 100% Italian Leather or 100% Leather, the leather used is Corrected Grain Leather. Corrected Grain Leather is the brainchild of the sneaker industry. Most, if not all furniture reproductions in the mid price range are upholstered with Corrected Grain Leather. Corrected Grain is technically a form of leather that has a layer of synthetic polyurethane applied to the surface. This liquid polyurethane is then stamp rolled using a plastic embossed print roller that has leaves the repeating appearance of leather grain on the surface. Is that real leather? Recent law was passed In the U.K and Australia mandating that corrected grain can no longer be sold as 100% genuine leather. When that embossed polyurethane top layer cracks or wears through, it's a different texture and color underneath and your option is new furniture or a complete re-upholstery job.

100% Full Grain Aniline Italian Leather, the real thing.

Aniline dyed leather comes with various names depending on the manufacturer or the furniture company. You may come across names like Premium Aniline, Naked Aniline, Aniline full grain, or true Aniline, they're all the same. Aniline is leather that has been dyed all the way through. It has no artificial top polyurethane layer or anything stamped or applied to its surface. Aniline has all of its natural features, no fake repeating leather look a like pattern and nothing to hide. It is the real deal and is what adorned the original mid century classics. It is supple in its reflection of light, curves naturally and softly over forms. It is pliable with a texture that caresses the hand as it runs over its surface. The porous nature of Aniline Leather allows it to breathe which in turn makes it that much more comfortable and durable. Aniline is genuine leather and patinas over time versus cracking and wearing out.


The Le Corbusier Chaise Lounge (LC4) is the best known and most successful of Le Corbusier’s original designs of the 1920’s. The chair first exhibited at the Salon D’ Automne in 1929. The Le Corbusier Chaise Lounge (LC4) was designed in 1928 with the efforts of not just the individual’s name that is attributed to the chair but rather a group effort with much influence from Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand.

The LC4 was originally commissioned for the furnishing of a single villa in the Ville d’ Avray, a commune in the western suburbs of Paris, France. The LC4 Chaise Lounge, AKA the “relaxing machine,” is a lounge that mirrors the body’s natural curves while appearing to float above its supports. The frame easily positions on the base using gravity and the users own weight to create various reclining positions.

History of the Designer, Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier born in 1887 was a Swiss architect, designer, urbanist, writer and painter. He is famous for being one of the pioneers of what now is called Modern architecture or the International style. He began experimenting with furniture design in 1928. His cousin, Pierre Jeanneret collaborated on many of the designs.

In 1928, Le Corbusier and Perriand began to put the expectations for furniture Le Corbusier into practice. The first results of the collaboration were chrome-plated tubular steel chairs designed for two of his projects, The Maison la Roche in Paris and a pavilion for Barbara and Henry Church. The most famous of these chairs and sofa sets are the now-iconic Le Corbusier LC-2, LC-3 and LC-4. LC-2 & LC-3 are similar in design with the LC-2 being the small version and the LC-3 the larger version. Le Corbusier LC-4 is the famous Chaise Lounge.
