Le Corbusier’s design was developed by Charles-Edouard Jeannert-Gris. He later chose to be known as Le Corbusier and became famous for his architecture, design, writings and paintings. The artist is known primarily for the development of design known as modern architecture or “international style”. In 1928, Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris began to turn his interest in furniture and furniture design architecture.

Le Corbusier chairs and sofas were developed after the artist invited an architect named Charlotte Perrinand to join his project. The two talented designers started on a line of furniture that had to mix metal media and cushioning to give a modern yet elegant design. In 1925, Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris wrote a book outlining his expectations of furniture style and functionality. He used his teachings from this book to design the furniture line that is still popular today. The great designer has thought of furniture as a work of art that is also useful for man and can be comfortable.

Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris designed a chair with chromed tubular structures. Two of these designs were used in his famous architectural designs. These designs have been modified to become the world-famous Le Corbusier furniture designs that are known today.

Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris also expanded his plans to include a sofa and other “home appliances” as he called it. Nowadays, there are many furniture designers who are influenced by this classic design. Later designers use this design as a of inspiration for their home furniture projects. There are furniture manufacturers who have purchased the rights to the classic designs and are legally able to reproduce the exact designs of the talented architect.
