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. 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.
