Beautiful Furniture Designs by Ligne Roset of France
Ligne Roset designs modern contemporary luxury furniture for those looking for quality designs which are bold and beautiful. It has a full range of modern decor dating back to the 1860s.
There are a wide collection of furnishings and accessories, including lighting, rugs, textiles and occasional items. This is now a multinational company that has spread its wings with over 200 stores worldwide.
From the humble beginnings, they produced wooden umbrellas, walking sticks and chair frames. In the 1950s they moved to contract furniture, tables chairs, and beds for commercial usage in schools, universities, hospitals and more.
The brand of Ligne Roset became official in 1973 when they launched their very first store. This was at the same time as Michel Ducaroys “Togo”, a timeless iconic piece that continues to capture its audience today.
Past, present and ongoing collaborations include Didier Gomez, Pascal Mourgue, Peter Maly, Pierre Paulin, Inga Sempe and the Bouroullec brothers. The brand is internationally recognized and has been symbolized by consecutively winning the Red Dot “Best of Brand” awards and other VIA awards.
Ligne Roset develops its products at the Briord factory in France. Each item receives a stamp of quality assurance. To buy a piece of this furniture and to look after it will give you many years of pleasure, and something of value in years to come.
Take a look at the designs of Ligne Roset from years gone by that we have listed below.
Ligne Roset Koya Desk Perfect For a Small Office
Here is a super cool home office that may help you hide away and get some work done, and no one will know if you are just having fun surfing the web thanks to the semi shrouded concept.
I think it really creates a bit of personal space surrounded by tasteful panels available in muted tones as to not get your mind racing. The fabric tones used here really are soothing and complementary to the light wood frame.
With the smaller electronic devices of today, this is the perfect size workstation for a bedroom or small home office.
Ligne Roset has been making quality office furniture since the 1860s. Take a look at a few more of their beautiful office products.

The Koya Desk from Ligne Roset certainly has that unique look they and their designers are well known for. In this case, it was Marie-Christine Dorner who has some serious project to her credit including street furniture for the city of Nîmes, designs for le Mobilier National.
The design is really quite simple and is made far more interesting thanks to the use of the natural wood grains of the Ashwood and the different tones from white to anthracite.
As you can see the look is quite different when the softer colors are changed to the more masculine darker greys and wood tones to match. This desk could easily mix into a real modern stark interior or into a softer transitional environment as well.
We also like the one curvy post with the wooden bird on top as a nice touch of contrasting shapes and class. I can see myself adding additional surroundings if I had this and possibly some state of the art super small speakers, then I would really get some work done.
The Koya was available for Euro 1609 as at production in 2016
Couliss by Ligne Roset Furnishings
A beautiful small bedroom chest as stunning as this is no mean feat. The wood top is such a clever design. I like the inclusion of raised edges to prevent coins, lipstick, and other items from falling to the floor.
Finding a petite bedroom chest in today’s world is challenging. Couliss by Ligne Roset defies the norm and challenges the boundaries on its size alone. Bigger is better seems to be the mantra spoken in many countries.
Also, as consumers, we buy more and more things without the propensity to get rid of possessions no longer used. Some may call it hoarding and others may call it collecting, but that is up for individual interpretation.
Ask yourself when you last saw a dainty piece of furnishing that was not antique or from another generation. The answer is likely “no” as is what came to mind for me when I pondered that question while inspecting this lovely piece.
The wood top is such a clever design. I like the inclusion of raised edges to prevent coins, lipstick, and other items from falling to the floor.
The sliding top is simple and effective opening up a great sized compartment where many possessions could be stored. One thought is that a purse could be placed here and kept covered up by the lid.
That way it would always be in the same place when leaving the house.
Long and skinny legs make me think dainty and elegant. There is nothing wasted here by the designer. That was part of the plan all along to allow this piece to go into so many different settings.
It can be placed near a wall or against a bed with ease making it very flexible. It’s also gender-neutral working well for either a man or a woman in their room. How about the grain of the wood?
The top is constructed out of Ayous wood in an elephant leather stain. It is known by other names in Africa such as Obeche in Nigeria, Wawa in Ghana and Samba in the Ivory Coast.
You can see from the grain and stain color that it looks familiar.
It is often used in making guitars.
This is a good picture angle where you can see just how small the petite bedroom chest is. Couliss would work well in a flat or small apartment by not taking up too much space and being light enough to be relocated on a moment’s notice.
I applaud Ligne Roset for adding a smaller furnishing such as this to its storied product line thereby giving consumers more options on sizes.
Ligne Roset Dino Collection By Eric Jourdan
With the Ligne Roset Dino collection, industrial designer Eric Jourdan plays with shapes and colors flawlessly. The asymmetry in the collection is no happenstance and nor is the architectural influences.
The designer confesses that he was inspired by Marcel Breuer structures and wanted something equally powerful visually. The collection features tables, desks, sideboards, etc and is available in veneered walnut and shades of gray and blue that further gets highlighted by the aluminum base.
Says the designer about the collection:
“is very architectural, I wanted to suspend blocks within the sides (curves here) and work on the level and color differences. I had some Marcel Breuer structures in mind. I like the idea that the construction, the assembly of the volumes is present in the interpretation of the furniture which is in generally closed boxes. With Dino, everything is visually prominent.”
Ligne Roset Designs by Peter Maly
Another stunning piece of furniture designed by Peter Maly for Ligne Roset. This is a Limited Edition version that is now almost 10 years old and well worth trying to find due to its beauty and the fact it is collectible.
The Lines Sideboard by Peter Maly which incorporates an unusual use of forms is part of the limited editions that will mark the 150th Anniversary of Ligne Roset.
The Lines Sideboard is derived from the contrast between the external cubic proportions and its surfaces, which are characterized by a number of self-intersecting lines.
External panels are a mix of three different new colors of lacquer. The elegant metal feet can be either chromed or black lacquered and each limited edition sideboard bears a special label numbered from 1 to 150 and the logo 150 ans Ligne Roset (150 years Ligne Roset).
The original was designed in 1971 and only made available to the general public in 2008.
Ruche Settee from Ligne Roset and Inga Sempe
Designer Inga Sempe and French furniture maker Ligne Roset team up to create the slender and refined Ruche offered in a 2 and 3-seat versions, footstool and classic 1-arm settee or sofa.
According to Sempe, “I wanted to take a completely different approach: a settee lifted from the ground by a simple, fine structure which supports a comfortable seat. I was, at the outset, inspired by swing seats, the kind of rocking seats which one brings out in the garden in summertime, made from tubing and fabric, which possess a lightness I like very much“.
Ruche’s rangy uprights and the undulations of its duvet combine to produce a harmonious union of rigorous straight lines and soft, welcoming curves.
LapTop Computer Desk from Ligne Roset
New for the Ligne Roset collection is this slim and unobtrusive “Poms” desk from designer Julie Pfligersdorffer that has the laptop computer user in mind.
The top flips up or down to conceal your current bills waiting to be paid or the computer itself. In addition small drawers open to the side, because we all need extra drawer space.

Aphrodite Small Space Storage Chests from Ligne Roset
Ligne Roset and designer Tadao Hoshino make small space storage possible for those entry hallways and other places that stuff tends to gather. Check out Ligne Roset for size and color combinations.
You may struggle to find one of these as this was released in 2009 and could well be a ligne roset collectible item by now.
The five and eight drawer storage chests get stability from a fixed bottom drawer that acts as a counterbalance. Aphrodite storage chest available in white, walnut, or the multi-colored version shown.
THE SPLIT – Small Home Office Writing Desk from Ligne Roset
The Split writing desk from Ligne Roset ads a sophisticated touch to any home office setting with its cool combination of alveolar panels finished in natural walnut veneer and base in black-lacquered steel.
The Splits top opens to reveal small storage boxes and spaces for cabling while providing added desktop space when needed. One cool feature Ligne Roset added is the directional desk lamp attached to the back of the desk.
Other features of this Small Home Office include a multi-way plug and connecting cables in a metal chest concealed underneath the top.
Ligne Roset Opened its First Boutique Store in Austin, Texas
And yes it seems to be still going strong in 2019.
Ligne Roset, France’s premier modern furniture manufacturer will open its first ever boutique concept store worldwide in Austin, Texas to be located in the 2nd Street District, reflecting the “cool, urban energy of the trendy downtown locale“.
The Boutique will offer a collection based on their best-selling products and select design-forward pieces that are an iconic part of the brand. These smaller-scale selections created by some of the brands most sought after designers will offer consumers instant gratification that will surpass the delivery process.
As many of you may know from our reviews on the outstanding designer furniture of Ligne Roset, many well known names in the business like Pierre Paulin, Pascal Mourgue, Didier Gomez, Peter Maly, Michel Ducaroy, Ronan & Erwan, and Bouroullec have contributed to the stunning collection of furniture and accessories geared toward the modern lifestyle.
Maly Platform Bed by Ligne Roset
A platform bed should have good symmetry and use simplicity in how it is constructed. The minimalism is what attracts me to these bed models. I do believe that you can draw more attention to other decorative pieces in your bedroom when the bed itself does not dominate the space.
“Maly” is a platform bed by Ligne Roset that uses symmetrical forms in how the frame and platform connected. The wooden frame is cleverly put together creating a minimal look, but also adding a bit of flair to the design.
Lines Storage Furniture by Ligne Roset
Storage furniture is great as it serves a dual purpose as a place to put things away and that of a decorative piece in a home. “Lines” is a series from Ligne Roset that combines storage furniture with great contemporary looks.
The sideboard is simply stunning where you can see the lines providing decorative detail that sets this piece apart from others on the market. The shelving unit is also wonderful for a person that wants to make a design statement in a contemporary home.
The shelves not running at a 90-degree angle is an advanced concept that draws the attention of anyone seeing the shelving unit first hand.
The sideboard comes in two sizes: 57″ and 87″.
Sideboard: – 57″ – $5,220; 87″ – $6,490;
Shelving Unit: $4,325.
NOTE: These prices were for 2009. You could well grab a bargain in 2019 or find yourself looking at some real quality prices now that the Lines Storage Furniture has aged. A quick check today (July 2019) and nothing was available to sell…
Colors: white lacquer and anthracite.
Everynight Convertible Futon Sleeper Sofa by Ligne Roset
Sure the name “futon” has been used a lot to describe an easily converted sleeper sofa, but as you would expect from Ligne Roset, the Everynight has a certain style you won’t find ordinary.
I really like the continuous styling of the three sections that designer Didier Gomez incorporated into this “small space” yet ample sized sofa sleeper that would be right at home in a loft or studio apartment.
The seat and back (metal-framed, with slats) are linked together by a mechanism which offers three positions, horizontal, intermediate, and upright. A thermo-compressed foam sheet is supplied to protect the seat when unfolded on the ground.
Sleep area: 63” x 84 1/2”, offering quality and firmness perfect for a good sleep Everynight.

P&P 900 Modular Wall Storage System from Ligne Roset
Ligne Roset of France is well known for high profile modern furniture and original designs that are often duplicated. The P&P 900 modular wall storage system is as versatile as good looking and is comprised of floor to wall profiles in natural or black anodized aluminum with matching molded end pieces.

The P&P 900 wall system is perfect for “small environments” where maximum use of vertical space is required and features various length shelves, storage chests, overhead compartments with pull up door.

Pierre Paulin’s Pumpkin Sofa from Ligne Roset
Ligne Roset of France has introduced the classic “Pumpkin” sofa collection to their line this year. Pierre Paulin‘s revolutionary style initiated in the late 1950s gave way to this 1971 design that was originally limited to the private apartments of Claude and Georges Pompidou at the Elysee Palace.
The Pumpkin sofa collection is said to emulate the lines and protective shell of a pumpkin with an appeal that is simply impossible to resist. Available now in large scale production as part of the classically tasteful and quality oriented modern furniture collection from Ligne Roset.
F2 Round Folding Dining Table from Ligne Roset
Ligne Roset furniture of France is well versed in creative and quality furniture design and has been for the past 150 years. On a recent trip to one of their stores, I saw the F2 round folding dining table that has a top comprised of three triangular sections that fold flat with help from an ingenious mechanism.
This is the perfect table for small environments or someone in need of extra serving or dining space from time to time. The F2 round dining table is available in walnut or white lacquer with a steel chrome frame and measures 49.25 inches in diameter.

Downtown Multi-Function Sofa and Chaise by Ligne Roset
The Downtown has a unique five positions articulating metal mechanism that converts the sofa into a bed, in which the foot becomes the headrest. Mean while the Downtown Chaise can be transformed into a generously proportioned 81″ day bed, and the fireside chair unfolds to become a large footrest.
Ligne Roset has the perfect answer to several needs with their new and innovative multi-function sofa and chaise which invites you to sit, lounge, or sleep in modern style.
The Downtown has a unique five positions articulating metal mechanism that converts the sofa into a bed, in which the foot becomes the headrest. Meanwhile, the Downtown Chaise can be transformed into a generously proportioned 81″ day bed, and the fireside chair unfolds to become a large footrest.
Each piece comes with a lumbar cushion that can be covered in coordinating fabric.
Yang Modular Sofas by Ligne Roset
Ligne Roset has always had a willingness to bring unique designs to the public and of coarse it helps when you have great designers like Francois Bauchet.
I really like the creative aspect of the Yang Sofa but its versatility is the most appealing feature. This four piece sofa set has options for two curved opposing sofas or a small “L” shaped mini sectional with an extra accent chair left over.
As you can see from the pictures, you can have a simple sofa setup like you would in a normal living room.
You can also put the sofas together to form a sectional seating system that can accommodate your space in many different ways. Yang offers great flexibility in decorating the living room with many possibilities and shapes.
The Yang is really four identical sections that make up a well-rounded square, which in this case the sum of the parts is as cool as the whole. Ligne Roset has a complete collection of classically minded furniture for today’s contemporary decor.
Price: $3,100 – $3,700 per sofa piece.
Moel Armchair by Ligne Roset
Ligne Roset wants you to be comfortable in the Moel sofa group, so they gave it some really soft features. With help from designer Inga Sempe, Ligne Roset used its expertise in thermoformed foam combined with bands of quilting to create the ultimate in luxury seating.
The Moel series is available in a large and small sofa, armchair, and footstool in a variety of contrasting colors. Ligne Roset is one of my favorite lines of light and refreshing modern furniture that includes something for every room.
The Smooth Pas Si Classique sofa by Ligne Roset
Featured here is the Pas Si Classique, a sofa from Ligne Roset. Founded in 1860 in Montagnieu, France, Ligne Roset has developed into one of the foremost contemporary furniture makers.
Nothing but elegance exudes this timeless piece. Small features such as the curved back pillows on the end and the many rounded corners shape this sofa into an architectural masterpiece for any living room.
This sofa features a deep seat with large cushions for the back, allowing you to sit in many different positions for increased functionality. There are many choices of upholstery from fabric to leather available.
The Pas Si Classique was designed by Pascal Morgue.
Ligne Roset Sofa Day Bed
I love the multiple uses of this piece of furniture from the French manufacturer, Ligne Roset. You can see from the lady lying across that it can function as a day bed.
The back on the opposite side would make for a nice sofa back upon which to sit. Then there is another seat back available on the other side. I think it is great that this sitting piece can offer so many features for its owner.
The shade of red is not too overpowering and would complement many rooms.
The simple lines and shapes are influences from its contemporary design.
Modular Sofa Sectional Seating by Ligne Roset
I really like the creative aspect of the Yang Sofa but its versatility is the most appealing feature. This four piece sofa set has options for two curved opposing sofas or a small “L” shaped mini sectional with an extra accent chair left over.

Small Home Office Furniture that Makes a Statement
Many people contact us looking for small home office furniture since space is so tight in urban areas. Particularly people in lofts, flats, and apartments cherish every square foot of space.
Families are also moving closer to town and needing more flexibility in room design where perhaps home office furniture and a gym is combined. The product here is a concept from Ligne Roset designer, Eric Jourdan, called “Hyannis Port”.
I absolutely love this setup in white lacquer. The chair is a great match and creates a wonderful work environment. The way the bottom is finished off with a metal rail is very cool. It creates a bit of openness that differs from most desks which finish all the way to the floor.

Find One of These Special Edition Pumpkin Chairs by Ligne Roset
This pumpkin chair by Ligne Roset is now almost 10 years old as it was a limited edition 150th anniversary in 2010. As there were very few made it could well be a solid collectors item.

Light and Modern Cemia Sideboard by Ligne Roset
Peter Maly made the best of well-rounded corners on his Cemia series which has a strong Scandinavian influence. The Cemia sideboard from Ligne Roset has an informal presence that features recessed drawers with handles made from curved lacquered zamac which are nicely set into the drawer.
I also like Maly’s use of a very unusual high rise loop style foot that keeps the Cemia off the floor and very light looking. Cemia cases are available in walnut veneer or white lacquer, fronts finished in gloss white, taupe or anthracite lacquer.
In the picture here is a white version of the product. White can add an element of elegance to a dining room and provide a great place upon which to add more colorful decorations. The full range is comprised of sideboards, TV units, chest of drawers and wardrobe.
