Perriand, Charlotte

Perriand, Charlotte (1903–99). French architect and furniture designer, she was one of the most influential creators of interiors of her time. She collaborated with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret on the Salon d'Automne Exhibition, (1928), the Villa Laroche (1928), the Pavillon Suisse (1930–2), and the Cité de Refuge (1932), all in Paris, and later with Jean Prouvé on the design of ‘serial’ furniture (modular wall-units, etc.) in the 1950s. She also designed kitchen prototypes for Le Corbusier's Unité d'Habitation at Marseilles (1950), and her output of designs during the period was prodigious. With Ernö Goldfinger she designed the interiors of the French Government Tourist Offices at 66 Haymarket (1958–60) and 177 Piccadilly (1963–4), both in London. At her châlet, Méribel-les-Allues, Savoie, France (1960–3), she married traditional and Japanese design to the International Modernist style.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
