Ligne Roset is a French modern furniture company that has over 200 stores and more than 1,000 retail distributors worldwide.[1] The company was founded by Antoine Roset in 1860 in Montagnieu, France as a small business manufacturing bentwood walking sticks.[1] In 1936, the company started manufacturing upholstered furniture[2] and presently they design and manufacture household furniture, lighting, accessories, and textiles from a team of 50 European designers.[3]

Among Ligne Roset's most recognized pieces is the Togo line of seating, designed by Michel Ducaroy in 1973. It features ergonomic designs with 5 densities of polyether foam combined to make the frame. The foam construction and quilted covers make each piece both visually attractive and very comfortable.
