in 2014, during the occasion of maison et objet in paris, designer inga sempé completes the ruché range with an armchair with asymmetrical arms. the high armrest features an elastic-webbed suspension, enabling one to lean back comfortably and then hook one’s legs over the low armrest. the armchair is available in two versions, with the high armrest to the left or right. ‘this is a new piece which enables those with homes where space is at a premium to enjoy the benefits of a low table without having to actually make room for one,’ says sempe

the structure of ruché is in solid beech, either stained or natural. ‘I insisted on offering a version in natural beech: natural wood is beautiful, qualitative, authentic, modern, and at the same time restful, for it is one of the rare natural elements one can fine in a living room. the angles of the legs are rounded, thus refining them and protecting the grain of the wood from shocks,’ she adds.

in 2011, sempe continued the development of her ‘ruché’ collection with a series of beds and side tables to add to the line-up. the beds feature the same ’boutis’ stiching or padding – a quilting technique originating in the south of france –  made by a cross hatching of interrupted seams. a large quilted form covers the bed’s wooden frame and then drapes over the headboard to complete the piece. they come in high and low bed version.

  • The material that has been created is wonderful and by far the most relevant element of these pieces.
    Fantastic. I would enjoy seeing it used as a blanket or, as we say in the states, as a comforter. It would be fascinating to find out how the fabric and filler was manipulated into laying over the hard structure of the furniture.
    Impressive.
