The armchair with Beau Fixe ears Ligne Roset it takes shape from the childhood memories of designer Inga Sempé and from the simple combination of the two main elements, the structure and a duvet.

Once the Beau Fixe armchair with ears was defined, it was flanked by a footrest and a two-seater sofa, forming a collection.

The structure works like a large pliers that grips a duvet between the jaws formed by the main uprights. The clamp segments it and folds it into rectangular panels to form the armrests, seat, backrest and ears. The structure usually disappears under the padding, while on the armchair with ears or on the Beau fixe sofa, it remains visible, an opaque black metal line that sinks into a soft and swollen mattress, divided into symmetrical rounded rectangles, "Like a spoon in an Italian meringue."  This great vise that unites metal with fabric is the common thread of the collection.

Also designed by Inga Sempé is the fabric that covers the Beau fixe seats:

“To counter the calm of the Beau fixe collection, I wanted to combine it with a fabric that animates it and makes it distinctive. Referring to the seats composed of straight lines connected by drop or arched curves, I created a motif that reproduced the succession of interspersed strokes and points, sometimes connected, according to an irregular rhythm. From a distance it appears to be a thick thread fabric, a kind of tweed, but it is simply a canvas print. It is not at all figurative, but it can resemble a morse, a brail writing, or a stylized representation of grains on a stem or trees along a road. The meticulousness of the motif allows it to be printed in bright colors while maintaining its discreet character. "
