Pieces by the late furniture designer Pierre Paulin are collected and showcased in museums across the world as an example of the clean-lined midcentury style that’s still popular today. If you’re really lucky, you’ve inherited a vintage chair that’s likely the conversation piece in your living room. If not, Ligne Roset, in partner with Paulin’s family, is re-issuing some of his early designs in a new collection out this year.

Paulin’s wife Maïa and son Benjamin were involved in choosing key pieces for reproduction. Some designs come from his first presentation in Paris, 1953, which was aimed at creating the ideal post-war apartment, and others come from the Paulins’ personal collection, never before released.

Included is a stylish sofa that becomes a day bed with an easy switch of cushion placement, and a stow-away floating desk for the contemporary professional.
