SOLD 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.
