Ligne Roset has gradually developed quite a collection of furniture that may be used outside. A lot of what appears in this part of our website also appears in other sections; this is because the outdoor range does not look like garden furniture at all and is equally at home indoors.
Some pieces such as the elegant ELIZABETH TEAK sofas and armchairs designed by Nathan Yong may perhaps be better brought indoors over winter, but they can be left out – the teak will age to a lovely silver. Even the cushions are treated to withstand a rain shower.
However, in 2019 Ligne Roset invested their imagination into converting two soft seating ranges into special outdoor versions that could really be left out in the rain and have really upped our game in the Outdoor market. OTTOMAN by Noe Duchaufour-Lawrance has been adapted with a drainage slot through the rear of the seat and the foams, interliner and fabrics and chosen for all weathers. In addition, Roset has brought back a 1960s design by Michel Ducaroy called SAPARELLA. Mr Ducaroy designed our iconic TOGO. Again drainage down the channels of the seat has been factored in.
A number of items are for larger outdoor spaces, such as the DEHORS dining table, but Ligne Roset often graces the balcony-terraces of London. NOOMI for instance is a small dining table, perfect for two, that folds down when not in use yet can be left out on the terrace an all weathers. Pair it with a couple of weather-proofed PETRA dining chairs – they stack and come in a choice of colours.
Hard to believe but Ligne Roset even has a couple of rug options that can be left outside in rain and shine. ROPE does look like it’s made from woven, well, rope of the kind that would rot away if left outside. But no, it’s made from recycled product, mainly plastic mineral water bottles.
And Ligne Roset can also provide some designs to light up your terrace or garden. GLOBE is made from sand-blasted polythene with a water-proof switch and brighter bulb. SOUS MON ARBRE is rather poetic, shaped like a flower and designed to hang from a twiggy wall hook.
A number of the outdoor pieces are often held in stock at Ligne Roset so keep an eye on our Express Item tags as you look though the section.
