Cassina introduced a limited edition of the LC4 chaise covered in pony-skin this winter. The cleverly curvaceous chair, designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, is as iconic a profile as any designers have achieved, one of the factors in the chair’s long popularity.

I Wish I’d Thought of That! (Our Social Media Salon)

2

There are few narratives so brilliantly conceived that they make me jealous I didn’t think of them. Only two come to mind as I’m writing this post: the book Girl with a Pearl Earring and the movie The Hours—each for different reasons.

Given the back-and-forth we’ve had with many of our tweeps, it has become apparent that the word “salon” as we are using it here on adroyt might merit more explanation.
