Textural Layering

Bring a fashionable edge to your home design with the latest from Matisse International Furniture



If there’s one thing that’s always in fashion in New Zealand, it’s layering. It’s a style habit born from necessity because of our changeable coastal climate; one that gives us the flexibility to add or subtract from our outfits depending on the turn of the wind or clouds. And perhaps it’s also an outworking of our love of the colour black — if you’re going to dress in monochrome, layering up contrasting textures or shades is the easiest way to add interest and depth to a look.

​LC Collection 50th Anniversary 



Cassina celebrates the 50th anniversary of the LC collection - 1965-2015: a golden anniversary for Italian manufacturer and the masters of 20th Century design. 

2015 is an important year to celebrate one of the most significant collections of contemporary design. In 1964, while Le Corbusier and the co-creators were around, Cassina signed the contract to start producing the first four models by Le Corbusier, Jeanneret and Perriand. By choosing Cassina Le Corbusier demonstrated great international recognition of the Italian company's industrial know-how.

Over the years Cassina has developed the LC Collection adding models by the three and other projects that Le Corbusier worked on alone once he had reached full artistic maturity. 



Cassina is the only authorised company to produce designs by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand, working in close collaboration with the Le Corbusier Foundation and the heirs of the co-creators. It is vital to fight against imitations and protect the culture of design in order to sustain innovation and quality.
