Rare and magnificent VINTAGE set from 1983 TOGO model by French designer Michel Ducaroy, for the LINE ROSET brand in natural (FAUNA!) CALF LEATHER in tobacco / tobacco color, composed of a 3-seater sofa, a 2-seater sofa , a corner and a footrest, in excellent condition.
It has a magnificent patina at the level of the seats and headrests; its leather (of excellent quality) having been regularly nourished, maintained and protected, it is always silky, supple, thick and non-cardboard.
The particularity of this set is the quality of its shiny and luminous ZEPHYR calfskin that Ligne Roset no longer offers because of its cost. Indeed to obtain a uniform color on the whole, the leathers are chosen and sorted among the most beautiful skins, rectified tanned (the leather is reworked to obtain a perfectly smooth and uniform leather), naturally dyed according to the traditional method based on baths of plants and not of chromium salts as today.
It has all the characteristics of the skins used: the leather is incredibly mottled, streaked with veins, wrinkles and folds of fat as well as by bites, scratches and healed wounds of the animal; this gives the whole a superb transparency all in relief. Nothing to do with the TOGO sets rolled up / reupholstered in poor quality cowhide, semi-aniline, or worse, split leather (the skin is split in thickness to obtain 2 skins ...).
The back of the set also has impeccable leather, without lightening due to light, without scratches, without stains, without flaws.
The foams of 5 different densities are always firm, always ultra comfortable ... The bases as well as the fabric wefts under the sofa are in new condition, clean, not stained. All the upholstery buttons are present, original. The date is stamped under each element: 1983
