The Le Corbusier Armchair

The Le Corbusier Armchair is a design clasic.The designer behind this chair was  Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris who adopted the name Le Corbusier in the early 1920s.It was made in 1928 and is widely considered the most important Modernist chair designer in France. but it was this armchair, that was part of a ground-breaking new types of  furniture group that took the simple chair or sofa frame out of hiding and put it on display as a beuatfiul and visible piece of  design in the house.

This armchair was a true mordernism product as there was mo oranamation but straight lines that were expressed with a polished chrome tubular frame. and then padded with the square cousions this was indeed one of the products that shaped the ideals of  mordernism.


Carlton bookcase

If you are a fan of colors then the Carlton bookcase from Memphis Italy is sure to speak to you. This piece was designed by Ettore Sottsass in the 1980s. This multicolored bookcase is made of pattern laminate. The Carlton bookcase is probably the most famous piece from the Memphis, Italy line. When I look at this bookcase my mind tells me that this is not what a bookcase is supposed to look like.But this is what it looks like and yes it is a bookcase so get used to it. that is what it says to me. And rightly so because who ever said that a bookcase has got to look a certain way, square ans dull and boring. so now when i do see what is considered a conventional design i just think to myself that whoever designed that bookcase had no imagination or flair. And its easy see how people find themselves inane of it, since visually speaking the bookcase is certainly going to leave an impression on any viewer. Expect to pay in the range of $6,000-$8,000 for an example in this condition.
