French furniture business grows US footprint

French furniture business Roche Bobois has expanded its US presence with the opening of a new store.

In line with its US development strategy, Roche Bobois has opened a new store in Edina, on the outskirts of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

With a floor area of 450m2, the store is located on a strategic axis and boasts a superb volume as well as double-height display cases that give it exceptional visibility.

This new opening reflects Roche Bobois’ ambitions in the United States, where the brand now has 33 stores (27 of which are own).

In addition, Roche Bobois continues to develop his profession as a publisher serving architectural professionals and signs the development of a penthouse-witness within the Humaniti real estate complex in the centre of Montreal.

In total, the complex will house, in addition to residential spaces, a hotel, two restaurants as well as commercial spaces and offices.

Located on the38th and penultimate floor of the main building, the nearly 200m2 penthouse offers spectacular views of the city.

Furnished exclusively by the brand, there are some of the iconic models in the collection: Scenario sofa, Voiles dining table or the Bubble chair.
