Borghese Long Sofa
Elongated proportions extend the restful “landscape” of French designer Noé Duchaufour Lawrence’s statement sofa. Inspired and named after the pine trees of Rome’s Villa Borghese, the laser-cut metal structure is assembled and hand-welded by European artisans to replicate the network of branches. Organically shaped individual back cushions along with a long padded seat complete the comfortable allusion in a wide range of custom fabrics for the seating from Paris design house La Chance.

The founders of La Chance, the Paris-based design house, have united talent from the bustling “new wave” of global design—10 designers hailing from 9 different countries—in a collection marked by contemporary French élan. And entrepreneur Jean-Baptiste Souletie and architect Louise Breguetbeen are partners in business and in life, as they say. Between the pair, they have lived in India and China, designed offices in London and built homes in Haiti, and lent their know-how to established luxury companies and emerging start-ups.
When the 20-something couple first met, they discovered they were both inspired by a love of the Art Deco movement, when objects were valued for function as well as their decorative attributes. That spirit imbues the modern sense of luxury and uncontrived manner of of their collection of furniture, lighting and rugs. “We like things to be warm, colorful, and good quality,” Louise says. “And in terms of style, you can see all the workings of the furniture, even the upholstered pieces, as we have nothing to hide.”
