Iconic Togo Anniversary: Celebrating 50 Years of a Cult-classic Sofa

Instantly recognisable by its slouchy, low-slung lines and folded fabric, Ligne Roset’s Togo sofa is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

The Togo has been the ultimate symbol of relaxation since it was first released in 1973. Inspired by “a tube of toothpaste folded back on itself… an closed at both ends,” according to designer Michel Ducaroy, the iconic piece celebrates its 50th anniversary. A favourite of leading designers, architects, stylists and design aficionados alike.

Spotted in many of the most stylish homes in Australia and around the world, Ducaroy’s classic design remains as relevant today as ever. In fact, the anniversary of the Togo sofa this year highlights what an essential, timeless addition it makes to any home.

To celebrate Togo’s milestone anniversary, Ligne Roset is releasing a limited-edition fabric until the end of 2023 – La Toile du Peintre by luxury French textile creator, Pierre Frey. This vibrant, painterly fabric reinterprets the work of painter Heather Chontos, and puts a playful and graphic spin on the design classic.

“The limited edition La Toile du Peintre upholstery is a special way to customise a show-stopping anniversary Togo with an eye-catching fabric that will elevate your home for years to come”, explains style aficionado and DOMO Director, Jane Novembre.

The Togo sofa is an exceptional design icon that will never date or look old. “Togo encapsulates DOMO’s furniture design ethos”, explains Novembre. “Our clients believe in buying once and buying well. With its timeless beauty and exceptional craftsmanship, since 1973, the Togo sofa has proven this ethos over and over again”, she says.

Exclusively available in Australia at DOMO, the Togo chair remains just as relevant today as half a century ago, gracing many homes and apartments in Australia.
