This November, internationally renowned rug producer, La Manufacture Cogolin, and leading European furniture brand Sé, announce a permanent partnership, appointing Sé as UK distributor. Following the successful unveiling of a joint first collaboration at Sé Ensemble during Milan Design Week, Sé’s flagship showroom, located in the heart of Brompton Design District on the Fulham Road, will now become home to La Manufacture Cogolin’s prestigious rug collection.
With its workshop located in the Gulf of St Tropez, La Manufacture Cogolin has beenproducing hand-woven rugs for an elite clientele since 1924. Rugs from its rich archives decorate palaces, embassies, yachts, luxury hotels and residences across the globe. Bestknown for its unique 3-dimensional weaving, the brand has released a series of several new collections since 2011 – often in collaboration with contemporary designers – as well as historic re-editions from its archives.
Sé, who has produced three collections with leading international designers and is recognized for its timeless forms, curvaceous aesthetic and use of noble materials, will present La Manufacture Cogolin’s distinctive patterned rugs in colours carefully selected to harmonise with its pieces. The uniting of brands is cemented by common sources of inspiration as well as shared core values of craftsmanship and longevity, which sit at the heart of everything they produce.
“La Manufacture Cogolin has been developing relationships with London clients for the past several years, travelling back and forth from Paris. We are pleased now to be able to offer a more local service and the opportunity for our clients to see full-size rugs in London. The team at Sé shared both our aesthetic and our values, so it’s the perfect partnership” - Sarah Henry, Managing Director of La Manufacture Cogolin
“We are honoured to have been appointed as La Manufacture Cogolin’s UK distributor and delighted to have formed a partnership with a company with whom we feel such a great affinity. Although Sé and La Manufacture Cogolin were founded 80 years apart we share important values; a production ethos that seeks perfection in craft manufacture and a commitment to creating elegant and characterful designs that endure. La Manufacture Cogolin’s incredible heritage is an inspiration for us and it is a pleasure to be able to bring our companies together.” – Pavlo Schtakleff, Sé co-founder
