Elsa Randé’s 2013 furniture collection

Category: Design Published on 10 Jan, 2013 Tags: , , ,

For her 2013 collection, Elsa Randé has designed furniture with names of songs, movies and poems that have marked our lives. A melting-pot of nostalgia and authenticity embodied in personalized and custo- mizable furniture. Its uniqueness? Her furniture is all sewn! Scoubidou threads assemble solid wood in an elegant stitching.

Elsa Randé sews scoubidou threads to put her wooden pieces together, a unique and unprecedented process. Thus, neither nails nor screws; only colored and solid threads that give her furniture the stamp of a fashion collection. She offers her customers to create their own personalized and customized furniture, by choosing the threads color, the feet shape and the wood species, but also by giving them the opportunity to sew a custom pattern with the scoubidou threads.

Elsa Randé designs her furniture in partnership with an artisan who works solid wood. The pure and conforting lines remind us of our childhood drawer chests or our lasting family cabinets. With names evo- king various moments that have marked our lives, her furniture sounds like listening to Janis Joplin’s “Cry Baby” vibrating on the deck placed on the buffet or putting Boris Vian’s “Froth on the Daydream” down on the night table before falling asleep.
