Sofa So Good

Do you recognize this sofa in the picture? Maybe you've seen a piece that (you think) looks the same in a furniture store near your neighbourhood?

Well ladies and gentlemen, this piece is one of Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-better known as Le Corbusier's materpiece. The architect-product designer had many masterpieces, but I'd say this one's the most phenomenal. Created decades ago, this furniture has not dated in the slightest, and even today fits perfectly with the modern home.

Timeless as it is, there are so many other furnitures that 'inspired' -or so called- by its simple yet elegant design, resulting in various look-alike pieces all over the world. So it really is not your fault if you thought this picture is a snap shot from that suburb furniture store, coz I too know a few stores that offer these look-alikes to cater people who adore Le Corbu's design but could not afford to get the authentic one - or are they just don't care about design copyrights? Hmm.. you decide.
