Roche Bobois collaborates with fashion house Maison Christian Lacroix to create their latest furniture collection
July 11, 2016: French luxury furniture brand, Roche Bobois has collaborated with the iconic French luxury fashion house, Maison Christian Lacroix to create a capsule collection of furniture. Designed for Roche Bobois’ Nouveaux Classiques collection, these exclusive furniture pieces have been designed by Sacha Walckhoff, Creative Director for Maison Christian Lacroix.
The Lacroix collection includes a dining table and chairs, small furniture pieces, lighting, and rugs. The materials include precious wood, shiny brass and silk screen printing on lacquered wood. An engraving of Arles in the nineteenth century, a town close to the heart of Maison Lacroix, adorns the cabinets and sideboards of the collection. A double-sided screen features the same town of Arles on one side and a collage of a fantastical, lush garden on the other, mixing prints and photographs of the past and present.
Armchairs and ottomans are upholstered in storm blue velvet and imprinted with a traditional pattern from the region of Provence. The dining room chairs, dressed in ivory and jet black stripes, evoke the silhouette of mannequins from Haute Couture workshops.
