The Togo suite, which includes chairs and couches and ottomans, was designed by head of the design department at the French furniture house, Michel Ducaroy, who joined the company in 1954.
The classic collection is a range of all-foam seating with covers generously quilted with polyester. With its unique design, the design will fit comfortably into almost any interior style and remains one of Ligne Roset’s best-sellers to this day.
It features ergonomic designs with multiple density foam constructions and quilted covers, making each piece both visually attractive and physically inviting. Ducaroy has described the design as a “tube of toothpaste folded back on itself like a stovepipe and closed at both ends”.
It was a seat dreamed up especially for afternoon siestas, or lazy evening spent in the greatest comfort and has not only been spotted in the homes of celebrities including Mick Jagger and Lenny Kravitz, but it is a feature piece in the lobbies of some of the world’s most prestigious hotels, including the famous Standard Hotel in Los Angeles.

Crafted by hand in the quaint town of Briord in the foothills of France, each Togo takes up to six hours to construct, includes three densities of polyester foam and is available in a wide range of fabrics and leather.
As of the design’s 40th birthday back in 2013, 1.28 million pieces from the collection had been sold all over the world — the equivalent of nearly four Togo settees every hour.
