inga sempe: ruché for ligne roset

ligne roset and french designer inga sempe presented a settee – ‘ruche’, currently on display at maison et objet 2010 in paris. its structure is made from wood and stands on four slim legs. influenced by garden swing seats often used in summer, sempe used a distinctive quilting – kind of ’boutis’ stitch or padding made using a cross hatching of interrupted seams. the highlights arising from these changes in level are very rich and their shading varies depending on the fabric used. available in 1, 2 and 3 seat versions

  • A side table with an untrimed backrest, just like it’s reference settee is a delight, that only the designer could have achieved.

  • I love it! It’s so cute! I want to have two of them to put them in my living room. Inga Sempé is such a great designer. I hope she’ll soon get a great prize for the quality of her work! I’m so excited!
