Family owned Parisian furniture retailer, Roche Bobois, celebrated the opening of their first Portland store Thursday, October 30. 

“Portland is so trendy right now. That’s why we moved here,” said Chief Financial Officer Eric Villasener.

The store sits smack-dab in between Downtown and the Pearl District at SW Washington Street, with the 60-year-old rotating “Rugs” and "Carpet" sign gleaming in its original glory. 

Roche Bobois focuses on creating custom made French contemporary furniture that is bold and unusual, so no gray and tan fake leather sofas here. “We don’t make it till you order it,” said Managing Director, Tyler Benz. 

The top of the line custom made furniture can take up to four to six months to get to Portland, because it is made by artisans in Italy. “Only 7 people in the world can make this” said Commercial Director Adam El-Hout, as he points to the Mah Jong modular sofa. The Mah Jong is hand sewn and upholstered in Jean Paul Gaultier fabrics, with vibrant turquoise dragon prints and paradise flower orange. The retailer often collaborates with worldwide fashion brands like KENZO and French designers like Sonia Rykiel. 

The SAGA, a sideboard dining table part of the Eco Design Collection, is made in France with 150 year old French Oak. The sideboard table is metallic base with an epoxy lacquer finish. The retail price for the SAGA without drawers is $7,240. Other products in the Eco Design Collection is the Legend, which is made with chestnut from sustainably managed forests. 

Attendees of the Roche Bobois Grand Opening Party included Roche Bobois CEO Patrick Hagemeister, model Jack Cowan and Dayna Pinkham owner of Pinkham Millinery.
