For the first time, Maison Christian Lacroix signed a collection alongside the French home furnishings brand Roche Bobois. This first collaboration fuses the worlds of fashion and interior design in a collection developed in a very much awaited partnership. The collection was designed by Sacha Walckhoff, creative director of Maison Christian Lacroix. The designer used beautiful materials, such as lacquered wood, or the glittering brass.

For this collection, which took only two months from design to completion, Mr. Walckhoff was given carte blanche by Roche Bobois. The resulting series of 20 exclusive pieces pay homage to decades past, combining and remixing eras in design to make something new. Christian Lacroix translates its signature over-the-top aesthetic into more accessible interior pieces, ranging from accessories to larger upholstered and wooden furniture.

Some items are embellished with different kinds of artistic prints that remind us of traditional styles. One example, is a cabinet with two push-to-open doors decorated with a landscape inspired by Arles in southern France finished with brass covered legs.

Original and a bit Japanese in its design, very “Mah Jong” inspired, the Parcours contemporary sofa is fully modular and dressed in different fabrics. It is upholstered in a selection of luscious, colourful textiles, adorned with a contrasting central band in fabrics fashioned by Missoni Home, Christian Lacroix or Amlapura. The modular elements offer numerous compositions according to taste and available space.
