For most of us, Ligne Roset pieces are the stuff that design dreams are made of. Should the opportunity to acquire a Togo or another amazing piece arise, we offer the following vignettes that lead by example.

Paul and Elsa Seah turned a 925-square-foot government housing flat in Singapore—complete with bomb shelter—into a sleek but cozy home. A concrete screed floor connects the open plan living and dining rooms and helps keeps the apartment cool. The white Cineline console from Ligne Roset holds the Seahs' AVR, DVD, and CD players. The sofa, another Ligne Roset purchase, is by designer Philip Nigro and the Clock clock is from Oggimai, an Italian company.

The simple, spare bedroom is brought to life by Rapaport’s toy Bugs Bunny and a pair of egg-shaped Dolmen table lamps designed by Philippe Daney for Ligne Roset. The Lumeo bed is also by Ligne Roset and was designed by Peter Maly.

Completed in 2004, the Belmont Street Lofts—with their crisscrossing pattern of wood, metal, and glass—have settled neatly into their neighborhood, offering a contemporary complement to the architectural elder statesmen of the block. The simple, spare bedroom is brought to life by a toy Bugs Bunny and a pair of egg-shaped Dolmen table lamps designed by Philippe Daney for Ligne Roset.

Dining room with wood-and-metal long table

A Marmol Radziner–designed prefab house, trucked onto a remote Northern California site, takes the pain out of the construction process. Located just off the kitchen, this room was originally designed for dining—the adjustable Ligne Roset Crescendo coffee table can be raised to 28.75 inches—but most days Bill and Abbie prefer to eat outside or at their casual Caesarstone-topped kitchen island. Today the space serves as a sunny reading spot and guest room, with a convertible futon (from Ligne Roset, since discontinued) and a set of leather-and-steel Paulistano armchairs from Design Within Reach.

A mezzanine-level bedroom in Lithuania

In the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, architect Rytis Mikulionis spent several years property hunting for his first nesting ground and finally ended up inside a former Soviet army barrack, which was, before that, a building on the grounds of a Baroque palace. The city’s astounding collage of architectural histories, compounded with a stimulating encounter between eastern and western aesthetics, make for a unique visiting experience.The kitchen fits neatly on one wall. The architect reads at a black Ligne Roset dining set, beneath a Col pendant lamp by Francisco Luján. The tublar steel mezzanine rails were designed by Mikulionis, who enjoyed being exempt from the safety concerns that a client would force on him. Photo by Hertha Hurnaus.

When plans for a prefab home flopped, Rian and Melissa Jorgensen were introduced to Jonathan Feldman of Feldman Architecture, whose custom design in Northern California was able to deliver an environmentally conscious modern home that met all budgetary restrictions and exceeded all expectations. Large screens on the second story windows are a low-tech way to protect the interior from the sun's blistering rays, but still allow natural light to flow inside.

Homeowner Jennifer Roy takes advantage of her wired kitchen. LEM Piston bar stools by Shin and Tomoko Azumi; custom dining table; chairs by Ligne Roset.

Designed and built in 1878 for Judge John Murphy, a 4,400-square-foot white structure has, from the outside, the undeniable characteristics of a classic San Francisco Victorian. Stepped back from the street and resting genteelly at the top of a large hill, the house keeps a watchful eye on its neighbors and the city that surrounds it.

B&B Italia chairs in Jackson, Wyoming

Homes on the range are getting bigger and more expensive by the minute, but a group of progressive architects in Jackson set out to prove that all is not lost. For the interior of the Stanwood residence, a minimalist palette of color and materials reigns. The Stanwoods took particular zeal in furnishing the living area with a number of pieces from Limn in San Francisco, including a pair of B&B Italia chairs and a custom rug from Ligne Roset.
