In 2014, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec wanted to expand the Ploum family, which initially comprised just a large and medium settee. Taking into account the rise in property prices which necessarily reduces the available space in today’s homes, they first decided to add a small settee to the Ploum range. The fact remained, though, that the generous propor- tions of the original settees could simply be too overpowering in a small apartment: this is why, whilst preserving the comfort, they also developed two new low-backed settees, com- pletely reworking their original dimensions. Thus the Ploum settees, in either the original or the low-backed version, are now able to integrate into any living space. A footstool, oval & as smooth as a pebble on a Breton beach, completes the range.
