With a quilt-like duvet draped across a slender, solid beech frame with asymmetric arms, this armchair by French designer Inga Sempé for Ligne Roset is a modest seating solution for contemporary spaces. Ruché’s name derives from that of a sewing technique calling for the bunching of fabric to create visual interest. High and low armrests accommodate a range of sitting poses while the piece is offered in lengths from 67” to 78 ¾”, making it suitable for small spaces. The duvet comprises a foam cushion upholstered in materials such as velour, wool, and microfibers. Available in the U.S. in February 2014. ligne-roset-usa.com
