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 armchair is built around the cushions with a metal exoskeleton and base network "spring webbing". Remarkably comfortable, Roche was appropriately dubbed “cushion baskets.”
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 Genuine Top Grain Premium Soft 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 wont 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 verses a hard square cubed look. The base below the cushions features a webspring 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.
Famous for its soft buttery feel, a full-grain leather hide is the top layer that has been carefully dyed to preserve the natural variations in color tone. Full-grain leather has grain & markings that are as unique as individual fingerprints. Without topical colors and sealers the leather touches, expands, contracts and breathes naturally. Experience hours of seating goodness with all the genuine color & grain variation, a signature of Full Grain. It gets better. Through age and use, the leather will develop a warm surface sheen known as “patina”. It’s the patina that gives furniture its comforting, vintage look.
