Please contact your local showroom for availability

Ruche Collection Design Inga Sempé 

In 2014, Inga Sempé completes the Ruché range with an armchair with asymmetrical arms. A stylistic effect, certainly, but it is more than that: the high armrest with its elastic-webbed suspension, enables one to lean back comfortably and then hook one’s legs over the low armrest. An island of comfort and relaxation which, when complemented with the Ruché footstool, will not only please women and children. This armchair is available in 2 versions, with the high armrest to the left or right.


Construction – Structure and base in solid beech, reinforced by two steel frames on the seat and back. Protective gliders on feet. Choice of 3 finishes for feet: matt varnished natural beech or anthracite or red-stained beech. Integral table surface (for the onearm settees) in matching beech veneered MDF.

Comfort – Pullmaflex suspension on seat. Suspension of back via a steel sprung grille. Elastic-webbed suspension on arms.

Making-up – Cover quilted with 300 g/m² polyester and ultra flexible polyurethane foam 30 kg/m3 – 1. The highly sophisticated execution of the quilting is achieved by a programmed sewing robot.Covers are fully removable.
