French Flair

Quirky and sublime, Roche Bobois achieves cohesion in its new Spring/Summer collection with one deceptively simple ethos.

French Flair

Joie de vivre — the joy of living. It is this belief that drives French luxury furniture-maker Roche Bobois and is what makes its newly released Spring/Summer 2014 collection so universally appealing: The dynamic brand's pieces are all customisable, allowing you to define what the joy of living truly means by creating a unique and exclusive work of your own.

Bold statement pieces drenched in a kaleidoscope of vibrant colours headline the latest line, such as the pop-inspired Airflower inflatable chair (modelled after Roche Bobois' bestselling Mayflower armchair) and the versatile, neon-floral Escapade Outdoor sofa with moveable backrests that morph into anything from a chaise longue to a loveseat. The collection's outdoor items are reminiscent of lazy afternoons by the pool or midday tea on the patio, while other pieces take on sleeker silhouettes and cleaner lines in subdued tones for the minimalistic and modern loft.

Those with an eye for the contemporary will also be interested in Roche Bobois' Collectable Designs for its Spring/Summer 2014 line. Exclusively available are several original, signed works that possess function as well as form — you would be forgiven if you mistook the angular, futuristic Aleta as a sculpture (it is actually a floor lamp).

Whatever the season, Roche Bobois' sophisticated pieces are quintessentially Parisian and will bring the joy of living into your homes.
