Discover timeless elegance and unparalleled comfort with the reissued Kashima model by Ligne Roset. Renowned designer Michel Ducaroy’s iconic creation, often referred to as the “comfortable Chesterfield,” seamlessly blends classic design with modern luxury to offer the ultimate seating experience.

Crafted with precision and attention to detail, the generous and inviting shapes of the Kashima model create a sense of reassurance and comfort. The all-foam construction, concealed beneath its graceful exterior, ensures a soft and supportive embrace, featuring integrated armrests, lumbar support, and a headrest for a truly indulgent seating experience.

The longevity of the Kashima model is guaranteed by the highest quality high-density foams, where the density serves as the sole assurance of its durability. The classic buttoned detailing, achieved through invisible tie rods seamlessly integrated within the foam, adds a touch of sophistication without compromising on comfort.

Exuding a classic yet whimsical charm, the fully quilted cover forms elegant “pinched” seams at the corners, adorned with reinforced interior laces, adding a touch of fantasy to the timeless design. The unique nest shape of the seat allows for a secure and embracing seating experience, ensuring both comfort and style.
