Sacha Lakic is the main designer behind Roche Bobois’ most significant pieces. With the new Bubble sofa which will be officially launched October 2014, I couldn’t help but post some of his great designs. Sacha loves using latest technologies & materials while focusing on innovative designs. The pieces shown in this post are a small example of how he can accomodate several styles and tastes.
Browsing through Roche Bobois website, you will realize that some of the most remarkable pieces were in fact designed by him.
You might opt for a simple sofa or sectional for your space for the sake of being convenient or because it is the major part of the room. When it comes to armchairs or loungers, I prefer to go for statement pieces whether in terms of overall design, color, finish, or simply because it is designed by a well known designer. In 2013 many designers presented magnificent pieces which I fell in love with such as the above armchair designed by Jaime Hayon for the Republic of Fritz Hansen. This specific photo made me love pastels, the whole chair is just a delight to look at. the fact that it feels like someone is already seated in it, gives the impression of comfort.

Roche Bobois Paris is presenting a preview of its new TV commercial, entitled ‘Jubilation’ (New film to run on French screens from 3rd November). Created by BETC, a Roche Bobois roster agency since 2007, the film illustrates “L’art de vivre by Roche Bobois”, the new communication platform for the brand. It underpins the core Roche Bobois values of quality craftsmanship, creativity and a certain contemporary idea of luxury ‘à la Française’.
Directed by Christian Larson whose choice of powerful rhythmic music blends classical influences with electro beats, ‘Jubilation’ shows a gang of elegant young Parisiennes passionately transforming an 18th century salon into an uber contemporary and sophisticated Roche Bobois interior.
You can check out Roche Bobois’ beautiful collection at their showrooms in Creative Design Center in Shoueikh. You can also follow them on facebook.

Roche Bobois to many means the stylish modern and fresh contemporary furniture brand, to others its their favorite provincial style furniture with charm written all over it. Both styles have allowed it to become one of the most popular furniture brands worldwide appealing to a very large number of tastes. In a previous post I included photos of their contemporary collection showroom here in Kuwait, in this one you see exclusive photos of Roche Bobois’ Provincial showroom located adjacent to the first one, also at 7 Zones in Shoueikh.
“Provincial” is a description which means items pertaining to the Provence of France, designers there are known for their intricate details and rustic finishes. The woodwork is mostly handmade in the Provence by craftsmen known for their skills for ages. The introduction of bright colors to many of their signature pieces gives the classic designs a twist and distinct appeal.
Roche Bobois accessories are a world of their own, some are not part of our daily lives anymore yet look wonderful within the setting they are intended for.
“Funky” is the new “trendy” when it comes to modern casual seating these days. With fashion houses, well known designers, and brands entering the furniture world, statements and designs that stand out are only natural. Roche Bobois introduced their “ Mah Jong” modular seating in the 1970s by Hans Hopfer . After working with Kenzo maison and Missoni home on several fabirc finishes, this year Roche Bobois decided to work with Jean Paul Gaultier . Roche Bobois presents its vintage Mah Jong sofa, in a new “bleu blanc rouge” look as opposed to the very colorful fabrics of Missoni and Kenzo. Personally I loved this years edition of this sectional. In addition to the Mah Jong, Jean Paul Gaultier worked on numerous items as part of his collaboration with Roche Bobois. The Mah Jong sectional, like modernism itself, has never gone out of fashion.
Another very attractive, modern, and hip sofa is the Confluences designed by Philippe Nigro for Ligne Roset. “Confluences may be considered to be a trailblazer in terms of the new trend for ‘counterforms’ as characterized by the interwoven yin-yang or puzzle-type effect. It will be just as pleasing to lovers of radical design, pioneers searching for a sofa which is totally different from any other, as it will to all those who are seduced first and foremost by the freedom of posture and unheard-of conviviality offered by its colorful, unbridled compositions.” You can get in monochromatic colors as shown or play with the colors and composition.Confluences was introduced by Ligne Roset during the 2009 Imm Cologne Fair.
