Ligne Roset

Ligne Roset is synonymous with modern luxury and invites consumers to revel in a contemporary, design-forward lifestyle.

Known for its artful collaborations with both established and up-and-coming talents in contemporary design, Ligne Roset offers a lifestyle in which to live both boldly and beautifully via its furniture collections and complementary decorative accessories, lighting, rugs, textiles, and occasional items. A distinguishing point of difference that sets Ligne Roset apart from other manufacturers is its tradition of investing in dynamic designer collaborations. Matching its deeply-held belief in design with investment and technical innovation, Ligne Roset has grown from a small business to a multinational company. All the while, the company has been family-run since its inception in 1860.

Creativity is a key value of the Ligne Roset brand: if a new product demands new materials or productions methods, the company will simply acquire them. Seats, pieces of furniture, lighting, textiles, rugs or bed linens: the idea comes first and the necessary technique follows.

Overview & History

Growing from humble beginnings as a small, boutique business, to a massively successful multinational company, Ligne Roset has held a deep core belief in design when it comes to investment and innovation. Since 1860, Ligne Roset has been a family-run operation, leading to an authenticity that’s unparalleled in the world of design.

Original founder, Antoine Roset, opened a factory that processed wood in Montagnieu: an area in the Ain province of France. Not long after, he began working with his son Emile producing all types of wooden products. From umbrellas to walking sticks, they started small and starting working towards something telling about their futures - chair frames. After World War II, Antoine’s grandson, Jean, began to shift the direction and focus of the company. Now 50 employees strong in 1950, they began to make furniture on contract. For commercial uses, they began to make tables, chairs, and beds. These were used by a wide variety of institutions, ranging from hospitals, retirement homes, universities, and private schools. By focusing on this high-volume customers, they began to grow astronomically. Within the next decade, Jean Roset entered into the domestic furniture market.

Antoine Roset’s greatsons, Pierre and Michel, joined business during this wonderfully creative period. During the hallmark years of the 60’s and 70’s, they began to revitalize the company by partnering with interior architects such as Michel Ducaroy. In 1973, the Ligne Roset brand became official. Opening their very first store, along with the launch of Ducary’s “Togo”, a classic piece that still excites and thrills to this day.

Canaletto Display Cabinet

One of our favorite pieces from Ligne Roset over here at Millésimé in Old City. The Canaletto Display Cabinet, designed by Mauro Lipparini, is a quintessential collection of display units. As described by Ligne Roset themselves, “like a curtain which discreetly heralds the interior”, it is a fantastic way to tastefully display an area of books and objects without things looking cluttered. The way the glass blends and blurs colors and shapes allows these pieces to subtly shine in your space. When clients come in looking for a way to clean up their home or office, we often recommend the Canaletto Display Cabinet. You really need to see and feel it in-person to appreciate its function and beauty.
