Sacha Walckhoff, creative director of Christian Lacroix has designed a series of furniture items for his debut collabortaion with Roche Bobois. The line-up focuses on high-quality materials such as lacquered wood and shimmering brass. It features several pieces for the living room, including a beechwood chair with legs half-finished in brass, matched with black and white striped upholstery. It's also available in black and fuchsia, red and black or blue and black. This is joined by an oval nesting coffee table with a top finished in acacia veneer, mirror and polished brass.

Next comes a cabinet with two push-to-open doors decorated with a landscape inspired by Arles in southern France and finished with brass-covered legs. In a simpler style, a console table using the same legs stands out with a design comprising two glass and brass structures. Prints are again used to embellish a large screen with brass details, decorated with plants and architectural elements once more inspired by Arles. Brass also finishes oval and acacia wood mirrors.

One of the larger pieces in the collection is an armchair with a faux classical style. It stands out with its asymmetrical shape, dark printed upholstery and brass feet. It comes twinned with a matching footstool, comprising two stacked sections and a brass ball. 

A final Lacroix touch sees a selection of stackable storage cubes decorated with red and black or black and white stripes. These can be mixed and matched to make shelving units or used alone as single storage solutions.
