A reading corner is that harmonious area created specifically for reading or doing activities that require concentration such as work or, right now during pandemics, Zoom meetings.
This area is essential if you work from home, are a writer, or simply like to read. The good thing about creating this area is that you only need to invest in a good chair. The support, in this case, is the main element that you must include because here you will spend hours of the day, so acquiring an ergonomic chair is the first objective when setting up the site.
If you are willing to spend a considerable amount on your support; in this case, the chair, we want to present you with one of the best ergonomic chairs when it comes to these activities; the LC2 chair.
This is a model designed by Le Corbusier, totally comfortable and chic. The piece has cushions filled with dense foam, which is one of the best quality foams on the market. In addition, it is covered with a strong aniline leather that is responsible for creating that natural and bright look.
Note: we always recommend to readers to check the previous article ( low-density foam) in order to enjoy fully the information placed in both.
If you have read the previous articles you perhaps have perceived that we frequently mention density, and you perhaps may wonder why it is related or how, well, that’s because of the quality foam measures by the density.
According to sleepfoundation.org density is “simply a measurement of weight per unit of volume. In the case of foam, it is measured in pounds per cubic foot (PCF). In other words, the density of the foam is expressed by measuring the weight of a single cubic foot of foam material”.
So now you can have a better idea of the previous foam like the high-density foam of what is made the LC3 sofa by Le Corbusier.
Now our latest foam is low density foam. This foam can be seen as the worst option for any case, but it really is not, it totally depends on your needs. It is true that denser foams are durable, but low-density foams also have their advantages.
These types of foams generally offer a warmer feel and better temperature regulation. This can be a very important factor for those families who live in hot climates.

Before diving into the types of filling you should have in your modern sofa, it’s important to mention that many upholstery foams are made of polyurethane (a combination of polyol and diisocyanate), so the phrase or term “polyurethane foam” makes reference to various types of foam from high-density to low-density foam.
Now, let’s talk about the first!
As the name refers to, this is a type of firm foam that typically forms the bottom layer of popular memory foam mattresses. It is also a highly resilient foam and is widely used by manufacturers because it provides a long life span due to the strong support it has. Thanks to its density you will not have to worry about acquiring another modern sofa in a long time.
An example of a modern sofa filled with this type of foam is the LC3 sofa by Le Corbusier.
