Togo's Golden Anniversary

Livingspace collaborates with Ligne Roset at IDS Vancouver 2023 to present 50 Years of Togo – celebrating the enduring legacy of an iconic mid-century design renowned worldwide.

To commemorate Togo’s half century, Livingspace chose to celebrate alongside the Vancouver design community at IDS Vancouver. We designed a special golden booth, hosted a key note speaker from Ligne Roset, threw a party at the showroom, and gave away a Togo fireside chair!

Conceptualized in the 1960’s by French designer Michel Ducaroy, the Togo was designed to break the status quo’s of hallmark 70’s shag carpets, floral upholstery, and stiff traditional sofas.

Plush, Vogue and Flexible. Over the last 50 years Togo has become a cult-classic, securing a spot in the hall of fame of contemporary furniture design.

Learn more about the Togo in the Georgia Straight interview with Simone Vingerhoets-Ziesmann – Ligne Roset’s Executive Vice-President of the Americas.
