Good Questions: How Do I Identify and Refinish a Le Corbusier LC2?

Hi there. I have a Le Corbusier LC2 that I would like some info on and to partially refinish myself. I can tell from the condition that it is easily over 25 years old and there are no markings/stickers that say who made it...

...The bottom support (wide cusion under the 3 seat cushions) is segmented and contoured similar to the new ones made by Cassina but there is no engraving under the arm. Anyone know how to tell the origin?

In terms of the refinish, I can paint the frame myself but need a source for upholstery quality foam and Pirelli webbing. Also, the leather still feels nice but the color is a bit off in a few places. It's definitely full aniline as there is no peeling on the surface and the color permeates the leather. Is there something that would help even out the color that's not just a 'paint on' finish? Thanks!

Can anyone help Matt?
