Designing the Ruche Sofa
- I'm just back from Paris, and still processing all the exciting new furnishings, accessories, and objets I spied at Maison & Objet over the weekend.
Though its basic frame is uber-minimal—a rectilinear bench that ends with two squared arms or one arm and a tablette—Ruché has the welcoming, come-sit-here quality of a much cushier sofa thanks to the thick quilt fitted over its top. This sofa is sure to be a smash with fort builders of all ages.
- A maker of unfussy, elegant design objects, Inga Sempé delights in things both great and small—even if she doesn’t own any.
- On a walk through Ligne Roset’s factory near Lyon, France, we track the multitude of steps, hands, and hours required to craft this very refined couch.
