The French design brand Ligne Roset has been designing and producing quality furniture for more than a century and a half. They work together with many renowned and also up-and-coming designers from all over the world. Every year they amaze us with their beautiful chairs, tables, cupboards, carpets, lighting elements, etc. and on this occasion we would like to present our favourites from the 2020 collection.
We’d like to start with 'Asmara'. Designer Bernard Govin created this seat as early as 1966 for Ligne Roset as a radically new way of offering seating for several people. For the 160th anniversary of the French brand, the model is now re-released with even greater comfort. The aim of this sofa is to offer 'freedom, warmth, fantasy and total relaxation'.
These are our favourites from this year's collection.
In the latest collection from the French brand we find two designs by the German Sebastian Herkner. The very inviting 'Taru' sofa and accompanying stool are simple in shape, yet full of character. The designer chose a unique combination of fabric and leather for the upholstery. With this, Herkner wants to highlight the craftsmanship and expertise of Ligne Roset. Equally elegant and pure is his 'Lewa' concept for coffee and side tables. The different surfaces create a dynamic yet stylish whole. Once again, different materials go hand in hand: ash wood and ceramics. The name of the 'Utopia' series of furniture certainly appeals to the imagination. Eric Jourdan's concept was almost too good to be true. Together with Ligne Roset he worked for more than a year on these pieces which had to be perfect both artistically and functionally. A utopia, they managed to create some beautiful pieces in the end. Despite the geometry, there is also a certain undulating element in the tables and cabinets. Even more personality is created by the possible adaptations. The top is in fact available in various ceramic stoneware and marble finishes. Some other pieces from the new collection of 2020 that we don't want to keep from you are the 'Bienvenue' mirror with wall shelf designed by Marie Christine Dorner, the lamp concept 'Grid' by Antoine Rouzeau and the stool 'Monolog' that was created by none other than the Belgian Pieter Maes for Ligne Roset.
