Originally designed in 1928 for a villa in the Ville d Avray, the first public introduction of this model was at the Salon d"Automne des Artistes Dcorateurs in Paris in 1929. Known as the LC1 Basculent Sling Chair, the design concept has been suggested to resemble the British officer chair design. Le Corbusier designed the chair with an automatic reclining system which allows the user to adjust the reclining position to the desired comfort position.

Our Basculent Chair was inspired by this LC1 Sling Chair, which we make at one of our contract manufacturer who we have been working with for over 10 years. Their products have features exceeding any other similar models on the market.We also offer the same chair in a cowhide.

Modern Classics Furniture offers two levels of Top-Grain Italian Leathers. Each of the these groupings feature:
  • Top-grain Italian leather from Grade A hides
  • Semi aniline-dyed (standard) and 100% aniline-dyed (premium)
  • Made in Italy and imported to our factory
  • Have a UV and Moisture Guard built into the dye
  • Are not split hides or bonded leather
We are happy to mail you a physical piece of leather so you can hold it in your hands.

Below are the leather colors we offer for our Barcelona Collection. Our Standard Leathers (denoted with the prefix L1) are top-grain, aniline-dyed, and then color corrected with a slight embossing to create a more uniform grain pattern. Our Premium leathers (denoted with the prefix L2) are also top-grain, aniline-dyed but have a soft feel to them and much of the hides natural grain patterns are retained. All our leathers are considered equally durable and are ideal for home or commercial use. To read more about leather, read our A Guide to Understanding Upholstery Leather: A Primer.
