For Ligne Roset, Ruché (the name refers to a gathered or pleated fabric which serves as a decoration on a piece of clothing) brings together the unusual and the traditional. The unusual thing about this piece is its solid wood structure, and the great traditional element: the quilting, the very heart of its savoir-faire. Its rangy uprights and the undulations of its duvet combine to produce a harmonious union of rigorous straight lines and soft, welcoming curves. Slender and fine, Ruché is nonetheless soft and welcoming.
We might also add that the very design of Ruché offers a collection of seating which allies comfort and compactness: its depth is only 85 cm and the length of the various pieces varies between 170 and 200 cm, ideal for small apartments. Finally, its seat height (45 cm) will appeal to a broad clientèle, not least those who utterly reject seats which are too low. The 2 settees are also available in a low-backed version (65 cm instead of 83 cm), with a lower seat (38 cm instead of 46 cm), a greater depth (100 cm instead of 86 cm) and a backwards sloping seat/back with integral lumbars. They therefore offer the twin advantages of remarkable comfort & the look of a true domestic settee, bringing it far from the 'banquette' look. Its lower lines enables it to elegantly integrate into all spaces, even the very smallest.
