Roche Bobois.

Roche Bobois is a French furniture company which initially started as just a distributor of contemporary furniture in the 1960s. Now they are not just a distributor, they have also had some collaborations with famous designers to manufacture furniture exclusively for themselves. They had also a small collection of furniture designed with an environmentally healthy conscience.

I particularly liked their bookshelves and storage consoles. I suppose that's why I featured them instead of their sofas or tables.

Enologist Cabinet. The French manufacturer looked to the past for inspiration for its Architecte collection. This 94-inch-long, cherrywood-veneer Enologist chest is based on an old piece used by vintners to store bottles. I love the vintage feel and look of the chest. Stunning.

This shelf is designed by a young French man, Christophe Delcourt with wood harvested from chemical-free, sustainable wood forests. The item requires minimal packing and can be flat packed to improve it's carbon footprint.

What I like about this bookshelf is the way it reaches upwards and outwards like a tree. It's simple wood structure makes it beautiful to display pieces or shelf books.

This one almost seems to defy physics with it's very minimal skeleton. To me it looks like two sine curves inter-twined. Sure to bring out the "geeky" or "cheeky" side in a person.
