FOUR KEY FACTS ABOUT LIGNE ROSET

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style Design -

1

Ligne Roset’s prod­ucts are made at a group of five fa­cil­i­ties in the RhôneAlpes re­gion, at the foot of the Bugey moun­tains – the same area where An­toine Roset set up his fac­tory in 1860. They are run on sus­tain­able prin­ci­ples, with wood waste be­ing reused to heat the plant and of­fices.

The brand’s three best-sell­ing de­signs are all so­fas – (right, from top) ‘Togo’ by Michel Du­caroy (1973), ‘Ploum’ by Ro­nan and Er­wan Bouroul­lec (2011) and ‘Prado’ by Chris­tian Werner (2014). 1.2 mil­lion ‘Togo’ so­fas have been sold in to­tal.

Ligne Roset fur­ni­ture has been used in a num­ber of prom­i­nent ho­tels around the world, in­clud­ing the Stan­dard, Hol­ly­wood and Mu­nich’s Bay­erischer Hof. In 2010, it was also fea­tured as part of an ex­hi­bi­tion on mod­ern French fur­ni­ture at the Musée des Arts Dé­co­rat­ifs in Paris.

The work of more than 70 de­sign­ers from all over the world features in Ligne Roset’s cur­rent cat­a­logue. In or­der to find new names, the brand col­lab­o­rates with de­sign schools, such as the École Na­tionale Supérieure de Créa­tion In­dus­trielle (ENSCI) and the École Ca­mondo, both in Paris.
