Design Within Reach just introduced a colorful new series of Le Corbusier armchairs. There’s nothing I love more than modern classics. And classic chairs in modern colors are a wonderful to way to update your interior.

LC2 Petit Modele Armchair

The LC2 Petit Modele Armchair comes in a range of bright new shades including red, orange, light blue and chartreuse.

The Light Blue Version

Mix and match pieces to create a fun color story, or go with just one shade as an accent piece.

Check Out the Chartreuse

I’m especially a fan of the chair in chartreuse. The yellow-green shade looks classic when partnered with a gray or cream sofa.

Just Plain Cool:
