Le Corbusier LC4 Chaise-longue
Designed in 1928, the LC4 is the definitive chaise longue. Built in a shape designed for relaxation, the chair was created when its three designers – Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand – teamed together to put man at the centre of their design, taking the idea that form and function should be at the service of relaxation. Find it in cowskin with a black leather headrest. Shop cassina.com.

Cube side table by Tonic Design

Jazz Age Wallpaper by Ralph Lauren
Ralph Lauren wallcoverings possess the enduring beauty and exceptional quality the brand has come to represent.

Part of the loft collection, Jazz Age is art deco-inspired and fitting for a decadent noir theme. Shop stleger.co.za.
