French Furniture Ruche Settee
This Post Was Updated On April 16, 2019
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.
