Here’s our roadmap for decorating your house like a chic Parisian:
1. A modern approach dripping in romance
French Furniture design can transform any simple rooms into elegant spaces.
Ligne Roset – “PLOUM”
Designed by R. & E. Bouroullec, the Ploum seating is the fruit of much research into comfort. The result is a special combination of two materials: a stretchable covering and ultra-soft foam. This combination, along with the Ploum sofas’ truly ample dimensions, provides extreme comfort and accommodates different ways of sitting, stretching out or even lying down. As per the designers’ wishes, the large settee is asymmetrical in construction : the righthand backrest is a little higher than the one on the left, whilst the right-hand seat is slightly deeper than the left-hand one and the zip on the rear of the backrest is off-centre. The seat of the sofa, canaccommodate up to 4 people. The great flexibility of contact associated with a freely-formed shape turn Ploum into a veritable nest: in fact, all positions are possible here, with both back and head enjoying the same soft contact, no matter which part of the seat is concerned, even the arms.
2. Timeless sense of fashion that last for decades

3. Easy to assemble
DIY furniture are greatly preferred by the Millennials as they can benefit from buying a higher quality product at a lower price point than if they bought a finished product in store or hire a professional to assemble.

SIFAS – “Riviera”
Timeless and Contemporary – Sifas takes its inspiration from its heartland —the Riviera— and from the region’s past glory years. The home of Sifas is a renowned holiday destination with lovely residences that are masterworks of Belle Époque or modernist architecture, a land favoured by great artists, painters, writers, and musicians, who distilled creative energy from the feeling of freedom in the air. This inspiring past that is part of the essence of the Côte d’azur has emboldened Sifas to reinterpret the lines of its most recent collection.
FERMOB – “Bellevie”
In Europe, especially in France, there is a popular family tradition: picnic. At the beginning, everyone sat on a piece of small cotton cloth, but now picnic has evolved to become a comfortable family gathering activity. The park is now full of picnic tables and benches so that people can eat comfortably outside. And this is the starting point for designers Pagnon and Pelhaitre. They’re passionate about hosting family picnic, so they designed the furniture to remind people of the good time of picnic in their garden.
