Interior architect Lauren Rottet has opened a new showroom with a personalized furniture line inspired by art, fashion and commercial design.
Rottet started designing furniture in 1991 when she designed the Evaneau sofa for her Los Angeles home. Soon after, she created products for Halcon, Steelcase and Bernhardt. A 33-piece collection focused on residential settings was introduced at High Point, N.C. in 2013. The new Lauren Rottet Collection showroom is located in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart and has sculptural tables, consoles, chairs, benches, sofas, mirrors and accessories.
The new multi-adaptive line incorporates Rottet’s love of glossy acrylic, fur, leather, marble, metal, rattan and fine wood veneer. Collection highlights include the Float series of hardwood and acrylic sofas, chairs and coffee tables; and the Dichroic table that incorporates sheets of glass with micro-layers of metal oxide that refract light and create multiple shades of colors.
Rottet is also launching a line of “Powerful” tables that conceal multiple power options. Hand-made by artisans, the products are offered in a selection of colors and materials.
