continuing the development of her ‘ruché’ collection for ligne roset, french designer inga sempé has now developed 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. 3/4 profile view

  • What a wonderful and novel way to gather dust around your bed ! This woman is a hack and she’s only gained notoriety in the design world through her relationship with one of the bourroullec brothers
