50 Years of Togo | La Toile du Peintre

Having established itself as the most iconic sofa in the history of design, the Togo celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and to mark the occasion, Ligne Roset have relaunched the collection with a limited edition upholstery.
Manufactured by textile company Pierre Frey, “La Toile du Peintre” reimagines the classic Togo silhouette, in a vibrant artistic expression.



A New Edition

Artist Heather Chontos, who works predominantly in the fields of painting and sculpture, designed the “La Toile du Peintre” print, featuring a dynamic pattern of abstract forms with a spontaneous vigour. Energetic brushstrokes and graphic compositions come together to create an organic painterly design. Whilst the colour selection of royal blues and deep reds, echoes a mid-century palette, with a new contemporary spirit.

Chontos’ painting style stems from unconventional tools, substituting the traditional paintbrush with everyday objects such as credit cards and broken glass, in a highly personal and distinctive approach to mark making.

The Togo Toile du Peintre is available to order for a limited time only, until December 2023.


The Story Of Togo


Designed by Michel Ducaroy in 1973, the Togo has become one of the most recognisable sofas in the history of design, and is still made in France to this day. Expert craftsman produce the collection with meticulous detail, at Ligne Roset’s factories in Briord, a small village in the Bugey region, nestled in the foothills of the Jura mountains.
