Contemporary. Inventive. Very Expensive. Walking past the Ligne Roset store, you can't help but turn your head and look inside (even if looking is all you're likely to do). Ligne Roset has always been synonymous with modern luxury, from its unique sofas and chairs to its modern lighting, textiles, and rugs...
Some words you often hear associated with Ligne Roset: Luxurious. Stunning. Over-priced. Definitely the place to go if you're looking for for a certain "shiny and new" look.
Interesting side note: Ligne Roset pieces show up quite frequently on Scavenger, and frankly, it always amazes me that someone would spend upwards of $20,000 on a piece of furniture if they were going to get rid of it a few years later. Is this indicative of quality? Or do the designs crumble under the test of time and changes in personal taste and aesthetic? Some food for thought.
Whether or not you like Ligne Roset, it can't be denied that some of the pieces are beautiful. Be prepared for long lead times.
*Their Midtown location is at 250 Park Avenue South.
