Ligne Roset Réamur showroom in Paris  will soon show “Beau Fixe” by Inga Sempé well known for her impertinent independence and practical rigour “As a child, we had two armchairs at the seaside, massive like elephants sitting on their hindquarters, the front legs of which formed the armrests and ‘ears’. These ‘ears’, I loved them since, not being at home, I could mess them up : I was always snuggled there in my wet swimsuit, my damp hair resting against an ‘ear’ whilst I wiped my hands on the sausage-shaped armrests.

This shade in non-woven fabric, light as a feather, gives off a muted light to create a calming atmosphere. With its attractive curves, the delicate nature of its irregular hand-drawn style (vertical stripes in the case of the small version and squares in the case of the large version) is the source of its charm.
