Viva RocheBobois

by sherrod on November 10, 2010

I’m always surprised and impressed by the beautiful and unique furniture from Roche Bobois. I remember growing up in the Atlanta suburbs, my mother would take me in to town to Lenox Mall and across from Lenox was a Roche Bobois show room. It has since moved to midtown, but I remember even as a teenager, going to Tower Records and walking down a few stores to the Roche Bobois and marveling at the beautiful things they had. They’re a true trendsetter and never disappoint. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

L’AV V Marquise Chair
I love the colors in this fabric.

ROSITA Bergere
Again, big, bright, beautiful color.

VOLUTES Console
This is a great example of what I have decided to call “Nouveau Rococo”. Rolls off the tongue nicely, doesn’t it? It’s a great aesthetic that takes classic Louis XV style furniture and puts it in vibrant colors, lacquer finishes and adds unusual or more glam hardware. It’s associated with Hollywood Regency, but different in that it retains a lot of the original styling and avoids any of the 30′s style Art Decor normally associated with HR.

Collection Les Provinciales
Obviously this is an amazing space, but the way it looks both comfortable and stylish is fantastic. It’s well used, but also well curated. A perfect example of what Roche Bobois is.

What is there not to like with palladium windows anything looks grand. I like the traditional frame with a different finish, new fabrics and special finishes on the buffet. I always say in good design, there is always great architecture. Style to live in. The off white linen fabrics on the upholstery are always a great direction, accent fabrics on pillows can easily be changed out for a different look.

I know! I love it. Looking at so much furniture lately has really proven that it’s all about fabric choices. That’s what really makes a lot of the impact.
