Matching its deeply held belief in design with investment and technical innovation, Ligne Roset presents the consumer with a lifestyle choice, offering complete collections from furniture to textiles made in its main factory in Briord, France. In 1860, Ligne Roset started as a wood processing factory owned by Antoine Roset in a province in France. From the production of wooden umbrellas, the factory progressed into other products, most notably chair frames. The postwar era saw it moving on to contract furniture, and in the 60s, the company began its tradition of close collaboration with both established and emerging designers. From Michel Ducaroy, whose iconic Togo continues to be made today, to Didier Gomez, Pascal Mourgue, Peter Maly, and the Bouroullec brothers, among others. Ligne Roset is now accepted as a leader in the international design world, with 850 stores worldwide.
