FOUR KEY FACTS ABOUT LIGNE ROSET
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.
