French designer Philippe Nigro has lived in Milan for over 15 years, and has struck out on his own following a long tenure with Michele de Lucchi. We caught up with Nigro, the 2014 Designer of the Year for Now! design à vivre at Maison&Objet to talk about upholstery, his work for Ligne Roset and Hermès, and the sofa he's putting in his recently acquired Paris apartment. (It's the gray De Padova number featured front and center at his installation at the fair.)

For Ligne Roset, designer Philippe Nigro created the Cosse sofa shown here. Nigro, who has steadily been amassing quite the body of work (see our previous posts to learn more) was named the Now Designer of the Year for Maison&Objet 2014—we couldn't agree more with the selection!
