Roche is a well recognized modernist icon originally designed in 1928 for the Maison La Roche house in Paris. Roche, like the original design, was revolutionary in its making as it was not built over a wooden frame. The entire sofa is built around the cushions with a metal exoskeleton and base network "spring webbing". Remarkably comfortable, Roche was appropriately dubbed “cushion baskets.”
Making the Icon
Kardiel offers the highest quality reproduction of this series on the market. We specialize and understand fully the intricacies of the original design. From the supple Top Grain Aniline Leather to the plump generously filled and wrapped cushions, our full list of features means you don’t have to settle for an inferior reproduction. You won't find a solid wood frame as the original was not built with one. The cushions are meant to take on a somewhat plump stuffed appearance verse a hard square cubed look. The base below the cushions features a web spring platform for added comfort. The details in scale are important with all reproduction pieces and Roche is no exception. Compare this reproduction anywhere for its highest standard of exacting detail. You may find the accuracy of this reproduction second to none.
Attention to detail matters when faithfully reproducing an original icon. Like the original, as the tubular steel wraps from the arm to the back, it is bent with heat to form the round curve. This is in contrast to reproductions that weld two pieces of steel at more of a 45-degree angle to form the curve.
Genuine Top Grain Aniline Leather
A great option for those wanting soft unprocessed genuine leather. Top grain is known for its soft supple touch. We finish our soft aniline leathers with natural oils and waxes - not paints and polymers. This dyeing method displays the natural grain of the leather. A layer of protective wax is applied to the surface of Semi Aniline Top Grain leather just before the dyeing process. This wax treatment provides a more consistent color tone and seals the surface. In the event of an accident, you get an extra couple minutes to clean up spills.
