That is the big question.
Do you know what the differences are between a 949€ with free delivery Le Bauhaus 3 –
place sofa in leather, and a 3 – place sofa in leather from the Le
Corbusier Stores costing nearly 10,000€.
Ten times the cost of the Le Bauhaus from Retro Europe is only part of the answer.
So we have established the mind blowing price difference.
Retro Europe’s Le Bauhaus is roughly one tenth of the cost of a Le Corbusier 3 place sofa.
Both models are classic modernist designer sofas, with classic undertones of vintage and mid-century design elements, and they both have a polished steel frame in an industrial design style, with the cushions upholstered in fabric or leather.
The Le Corbusier LC2 is a timeless modernist designer model, which has made design history. It was originally designed in 1928 and exhibited at the Salon d’Automne in Paris in 1929. The LC2 from Le Corbusier is the archetypal designer sofa and the pinnacle of a modernist designer conception in furnishing.
However, albeit Retro Europe’s Le Bauhaus sofa can not compete with a 100-year-old history, it is fair and reasonable to say that they both have an undeniable classic design and given time Le Bauhaus will be the industry winner, because of its modern construction and dimensions.
First, we examine the design. The LC2 from Le Corbusier uses materials from the 1920,s. It is constructed upon a steel frame and sprung with elasticated straps that offer little support for the larger heavier 20th-century user.
The Le Bauhaus from Retro Europe’s online furniture store retroeurope.com is constructed on a solid hardwood frame with multi-density cushioning for greater support and a lifetime of use.
A significant difference is the size.
The LC2 Le Corbusier 3 place sofa is 180 cms long with a cushion width around 50 cms
The Le Bauhaus from Retro Europe offers close on 230 cms in length with cushions sizes a massive 70 cms.
From the Le Bauhaus Collection, you have full sized and comfortable modern designer sofas for 20th-century people, and remember we are all bigger today than our great grandparents were 100 years ago.
Plus the Le Bauhaus from Retro Europe is a full 10 cms higher to give that all important back support.
LC2 Le Corbusier modern designer sofas have for many years been loved by wealthy celebrities, and were the must-have sofa for every self-respecting modern designer furniture snob.
But the LC2 Le Corbusier sofa is pricey.
At an eye watering 10,000 euros, it is for the very wealthy and perhaps frivolous few.
Retro Europe’s Le Bauhaus at 999.00 Euros, from their highly acclaimed Reinvented, Affordable, Great Designs brand of modern designer furniture is an outright convincing winner.
Since Retro Europe launched its popular low cost – high quality affordable great designer retro furniture ranges last year, sales have gone from strength to strength, with more and savvier buyers ordering the Le Bauhaus modernist sofa from retroeurope.com
