We believe Ligne Roset’s furniture makes all our lives richer. The range includes eye-catching sofas, easy-to use sofa beds, modular seating and supportive armchairs and footstools, along with gorgeous coffee tables and storage solutions. Roset strike a brilliant balance between iconic, unique design on the one hand and, on the other, luxurious comfort that’s perfect for our customers’ homes. We have a loyal following of customers for good reason: they return because of the comfort and longevity of the designs.
Seating at the centre
Seating is usually the centre-piece of a living space, and Ligne Roset has always used a pool of great designers to create their products. Some were already famous like design-god Pierre Paulin (ANDY, ARCHI, ANDA, PUMPKIN). Some were made famous by their association with Roset – like Michel Ducaroy with his iconic and perennially groovy TOGO modular seating. Other furniture designers were given their first opportunity by Michel Roset and have gone on to great things: Noe Duchaufour-Lawrance (OTTOMAN) and Philippe Nigro (PHILEAS, FLAX) come to mind.
Underpinned by innovation
Ligne Roset has never been afraid to incorporate new materials, from the all-foam TOGO created in the 1970s and the design by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec’s for PLOUM, with its use of new memory foams: ultimate comfort.
PRADO by Christian Werner has been an amazing success for the brand too, breaking concepts of what a sofa should be. Here a minimal but beautifully finished bench is combined with deceptively simple back cushions that can be placed at will wherever you like. The ergonomic design of these is pure genius: lean against them and they stay put, perfectly supporting the sitter. Choose a bench with just one back support and you have an elegant chaise. Or choose two benches placed at right angles with multiple back cushions for a corner seating unit. Our customers always say that any photo does not do justice to this design; it needs to be tried and, due to its popularity, you can be certain that we will have it on show.
The classics are just that
For more classic sofa designs, Michel Roset often works with his great friend Didier Gomez, who has among his clients Yves Saint-Laurent, Pierre Bergé, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Carrousel du Louvre, LVMH, Bernard Arnault, Céline, Louis Vuitton, Galeries Lafayette, Kenzo, and Christian Dior. We are in good company! A good example is EXCLUSIF seating, offering adaptable modular units that can combine to form huge corner arrangements or simply be an elegant chaise longue. This form of corner seating design is not especially unique to Roset but when our customers compare with other brands, they tell us ours wins on comfort.
More than seating
Perhaps your living space must have to perform multiple functions, such as a studio flat? Ligne Roset offer a select choice of well-made bed settees. With their flexibility and ease of manipulation, to know Roset’s sofa beds is to love them. Above all they must work as comfortable sofas, but they also have to provide a good night’s sleep. Ligne Roset’s quality is testified by the number of customers who buy our sofa beds after being an over-night guest in a ‘Roset house’.
We also realise that sofa beds are often not thought about until they are needed. Got someone coming next week? We may be able to help. The MULTY sofabed is often on express delivery. We even offer MULTY at a special price in selected colours.
Complement your seating with Ligne Roset’s superb choice of coffee, side and console tables and your living space is almost complete, whatever the style, shape and size of your home. We offer practical, usable designs that also happen to look superb with everything else in our collection; it’s all in the attention to detail and materials. We use wood, glass, lacquered steel, stone, marble and ceramics to create unique designs.
Sound and vision
One elephant in many living rooms is the TV and sound systems. You may have had it all built in with wiring etc hidden away behind walls. But if you do need furniture to house and support equipment, Ligne Roset keeps up with the fast-moving trends and has also invested in extra machines to offer up to 16 colours of lacquer: midnight blue is a current favourite.
The extra touches
Once you have the main pieces for your living room in place, your attention can naturally turn to the extra touches. Roset is here for you on these aspects too: rugs, lighting, mirrors and objets d’art are all part of the ever-changing collection, featured in other sections of the website.
Ligne Roset’s rug range covers a broad spectrum, ensuring there will be something that will look right whatever the furniture you are aiming to compliment. There are more than 40 different designs of rugs using a wide variety of materials from pure new wool to wood fiber and even sustainable recycled materials such a PET – which is essentially made from plastic water bottles. We offer standard sizes which can be delivered within a week or so, but most designs can also be custom-made up to 4m in size and in a palette of over 60 colours. From the contemporary to the more classic, with these Roset provide the perfect finishing touch underfoot.
Reflections and art pieces
Ligne Roset also offer a large selection of mirrors from small to super large. GEOFFREY designed by Alain Gilles is currently our biggest statement piece. In other sections of our website our lighting selection, changing as technology races onward, can really make a living space special, together with interesting vases and objets. The latter are often only produced in small batches by crafts people and so the choice changes annually.
The right focus, the right foundations
One thing that sets Ligne Roset apart from other brands is the attention to detail, whilst maintaining a pure line: nothing is superfluous or just decorative. Another thing is that Ligne Roset is still a family business, now in its fifth generation ‘depuis 1860’. The majority of its designs are manufactured within one of its five industrial sites. Together, these factories cover 155000 m2.
Modern technology means that more of the processes can be mechanized these days but in the end the business revolves around human beings, not robots. It is Roset’s staff that hand-finish seat covers, check cattle hides or wood veneers for imperfections by eye, test every dining chair is level on a special metal plate before it is allowed to leave the factory … – all of that and far, far more.
