Sofa "Marsala"

by Michel Ducaroy for Ligne Roset, France 1970s

Super comfortable 3 seater lounge Sofa Marsala by Michel Ducaroy for Ligne Roset in original velvet upholstery with the famous flower pattern in shades of black, brown, beige and white. Freedom, softness, cosiness – it was no less than the revolution with which Michel Ducaroy changed the image of the sofa in Europe. The perfect piece for the spirit of the 70s!
The large sofa has a smoked coloured plexiglass base and very cosy soft velvet cushions. The three plexiglass shells are connected to each other by a plug-in system.

Michel Ducaroy was born in 1925, into a family of designers and furniture makers. Drawing from his background he trained at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts in Lyon, and in the family business, before branching out alone as an independent designer in 1952.
Since his first contact with the Roset company in 1954, Michel Ducaroy has rapidly become one of their most integral designers. In 1968 he designed one of the first modular all-foam chairs, the low-sitting Adria, and then further models which had large cushions on a frame of altuglass.

It was in 1973, that he designed the now iconic Togo.

The famous “LC2” chair model consists of four red leather cushions, free of connections, held within a chrome-plated or coloured steel-tube cage making up the primary support of the object. The geometric structural pattern is modulated after the golden section, the resulting scansion reminding us of the play of empty and full spaces to be found in Le Corbusier’s earliest style. 

In 1922, Le Corbusier began working in the new rue de Sèvres, Paris, atelier together with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret. In October 1927, the pair decided to collaborate with Charlotte Perriand, a then young architect who had already begun to establish a reputation on the architectural scene of the time. The teamwork by Le Corbusier, Jeanneret and Perriand lasted through to 1937. Their collaboration was highly significant, both in terms of the cultural weight of their achievements and their professional successes.It was together with Charlotte Perriand that Le Corbusier and Jeanneret started the innovative project for “l’équipement d’intérieur de l’habitation”. As a result, the project’s designs were of great intellectual value and considerable commercial success.

Purple Bouclé Chairs

made in Italy 1970s

This pair of Italian black armchairs with purple bouclé from the 1970s is made of black varnished wood and    upholstered in purple bouclé fabric. The particularity of the armchairs are the back cushions that wrap around the entire seat. The armchairs have a very clean and defined geometric line giving them an almost futuristic look- a perfect fit to give a room some groovy club vibes. In addition, their vibrant purple colour serve es a real eye-catcher! 

French for ‘curl’ or ‘loop’, Bouclé is both yarn and an upholstery fabric made from it. The textile is characterised by its nubby, almost fleecy appearance, from the little loops in the yarn. Bouclé fabrics are commonly made from wool fibres, however, you can also find the textile in linen, cotton and even silk.

According to Architectural Digest, the bouclé trend perhaps looks most effective when upholstered on curved furniture, like this pair of purple lounge chairs with their curved armrests and overall rather well round shape.

Materials and Techniques: wood, bouclé

Place of Origin: Italy
Period: 1970 – 1979
Date of Manufacture: ca 1970

Height: 90 cm, Depth: 80 cm, Width: 67 cm
