amédée is a settee and armchair combination, designed around a lumbar support which is quilted and stitched just like the bucket seats of the best italian motor cars. the armchair may be rotating, and there is also a footstool for when it’s time to relax. chic, urban and thus compact, this family of seating acquires undeniable luxury object status when upholstered in the new full grain, pure aniline orga leather, with its slightly smooth, glossy finish.
in 1962, reinterpreting florence knoll's settee from 1954, he softened all its contours, reducing the number of buttons to eliminate the severe squares of quilting and made the metal structure underlining the edges of its base disappear, retaining only the four legs: in short, he designed a new domestic settee, both sensual and refined. and as a precious refinement, he mounted the chromed steel legs inside the armrests both to the front and to the rear.
asmara is now making its big comeback to the collection for the 160th anniversary of ligne roset. nostalgics, collectors, fans of co-working and above all visionaries will want to seize the opportunity to rediscover this mythical seating, its comfort further improved by the latest innovations from the roset d&d department. asmara defines itself as a modular settee in a stretch fabric, the concave shapes of which voluptuously hug the contours of the body in an aesthetically human design.
the backpack armchair derives its distinctive personality from the slim, elegant structure/base which is the perfect foil for the perfectly-designed silhouette of its welcomingly thick and ergonomically-curved seat/back cushion. at the top of the back, the cushion rolls over on itself and is held in place by a strap on its back (red or black) which is evocative of the kind of backpack used by the explorers of yesteryear.
ligne roset was able to work on the reissue of the bonnie seating using a real collector’s item, one of only a few very rare examples in existence (modèles 500 and 500/2 – design 1975). from the outset, the bonnie seating was striking in terms of its comfort, both visual and real, hugging the lines of the human body fiercely. the bonnie seating is at once extremely comfortable and also clever, without being too clever.
enki is the first seating evangelos vasileiou has designed for ligne roset. intended to respond to multiple requirements, its pure, elegant lines lend themselves to both stand-alone seating (settees, armchair, footstool) and corner compositions, with a range of 18 items in total. to make it possible to tailor both looks and comfort, there is a choice between 2 leg heights.

the enduring success of the flax armchairs since their launch has led philippe nigro to complement them with a settee with the same construction. perfectly proportioned, it offers two generous seat places whilst occupying the least possible space: with a depth of 80cm, it is only 135cm wide! the one-piece seat cushion reinforces the impression of discreet elegance. ideal for small spaces, its walnut frame nonetheless lightens its visual presence still further.
if the term hémicycle might be evocative of the assemblée nationale, it was also chosen for its completely different geometrical connotation. the use of this straight seat must also be well suited to use in institutions, public spaces or more traditional habitations. it represents a classically-styled welcoming place capable of travelling between the highest echelons of power and the intimacy of a contemporary apartment.
