Luxury Furniture Maker Ligne Roset Launches MycoWorks Mycelium Leather Collection

The sustainable materials science company MycoWorks will bring its mycelium-based leather to luxury furniture maker Ligne Roset in a first for both brands.

For more than five generations, Ligne Roset has been a global leader in luxury leather-based furniture. The company, established in France in 1860, has spent the last two years working with MycoWorks to develop the first furniture made from its proprietary mycelium leather dubbed Reishi.

“We are proud to be the first to introduce Reishi into our collections and to the furniture design industry,” Antoine Roset, Marketing Director Groupe Roset, said in a statement. “We have been waiting for years for a natural, sustainable material that meets our quality standards and our customers’ expectations. We believe Reishi is the answer.”

Ligne Roset’s first of what it says will be “many Reishi products” is a limited-edition pair of pillows, which will be available for purchase in 2023.
