Ruché is the single-armed-chair by Inga Sempe for Ligne Roset, the project that complete the homonymous collection  brings together the unusual and the traditional: the solid and contemporary wood structure is combined the quilting, the very heart of a savoir-faire. –


A thick quilted mattress rests on a slender and essential wooden structure. The undulations of the duvet produce a harmonious union of rigorous straight lines and soft, welcoming curves. The Ruché name refers to a gathered or pleated fabric which serves as a decoration on a piece of clothing. The quilting called “Ruché” is distinctive in its use of the cross-hatching of interrupted seams.


Available with a higher armrest on the right or on the left, Ruché can be associated with the existing ottoman. Many choices of cloth are possible, from velours, to wool, from thick cloths and microfibres to leather. The wood structure comes in several natural beech, varnished beech, red or charcoal grey stained beech.


Known for its collaborations with the foremost talents in contemporary design, Ligne Roset is distinguished from other manufacturers by its tradition of close collaboration with both established and emerging designers. Creativity is a key value of the brand: if a new product demands new materials or new productions methods, the company will acquire them. Seats, pieces of furniture, lighting, textiles, rugs or bed linens: the idea precedes and the technique follows. Anything is possible.
