    Product Description: The Basculant Chair (1928) was inspired by a mid nineteenth century folding
    chair used by the British army officers on campaign in India.

    Known simply as the 'Colonial Chair', the elegant simplicity of this
    predecessor has been carefully preserved. Indeed the lines of the 'Colonial's'
    tilted seat and canted back, are strikingly similar to those of the Basculant
    Chair. Le Corbusier had the foresight to see the true beauty in this humble
    design, elevating it from rugged utilitarian basic, to functional art.

    In this modern derivation, a chromed steel frame replaces the oak of the
    original, and leather seat and back replace light canvas. A variation uses cow
    hide, (called pony) instead of the leather; serving perhaps as an enigmatic
    reminder of the outdoorsy colonial lineage of this eminently refined heir. \
