Cassina, the Italian luxury furniture brand, has collaborated with Louis Vuitton to create a tribute limited edition LC4 Chaise Lounge. The collaboration was unveiled during Art Basel Miami at the Cassina Showroom in honor French designer Charlotte Perriand.
The LC4 chaise was originally designed by Perriand herself along with Le Corbusier, and Pierre Jeanneret in 1929. The re-issue comes covered in the buttery cowhide of Vuitton’s leather. The chair is upholstered in pale rose-colored leather, with contrasting dark brown hide on the foot and headrest.
Defined as the ‘ultimate relaxing machine,’ only 1000 of the Cassina & Louis Vuitton Limited Edition LC4 Chaise Lounge will be made. The LV logo is no where to be found, it will be priced at $8000.

I recently saw this at (context) gallery in Atlanta – they also show it on their website. It's a spectacular piece – the attention to detail and craftsmanship is just extraordinary. It's around $8,000 but given what a piece of Louis Vuitton luggage costs these days, I suspect that this is probably still quite a deal for a limited edition piece of furniture.
