Cover The Bom Bom sofa and Isis rug by Joana Vasconcelos for Roche Bobois

Created in collaboration with Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos, the colourful Bom Bom collection from French furniture brand Roche Bobois will liven up any living space

A delightful riot of colour, imagination and whimsy sum up the fantastical art installations of Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos—elements that also define her latest design collaboration with French furniture atelier Roche Bobois.

The BomBom collection with Vasconcelos offers modular furniture and home accessories that are both playful and practical. Melding art with everyday objects, highlights include candy-coloured sofa sets that can be personalised in different colour combinations, as well as cushions and rugs inspired by Roche Bobois’ affiliation with the Bauhaus aesthetic. 

The Arts and Crafts movement is not the only signature of the French furniture maker—the firm is also famous for its partnerships with creative mavericks like fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier. Fans of such collaborative work can look forward to pieces that can be styled together or used as a standalone statement.

Looking for easy ways to liven up your home? Here are four vibrant picks that will do the trick.

1. Bom Bom 310 sofa

This five-seater sofa comes in a customisable combination of colours adjustable back cushions and a tri-density foam body; its spacious dimensions mean ample room for a family to lounge on. The couch is upholstered in slightly stretchable fabric and features removable covers, a nifty feature for homeowners with children and pets.

2. Isis and Tutti Frutti rugs

Sink your feet into these fun and cheerful rugs, designed to add a splash of colour without compromising on comfort and quality. Tufted and made of 100 per cent wool, the Tutti Frutti resembles a cluster of candy—a concept that inspired the name of the collection. Another headturner worth considering is the circular Isis rug, emblazoned with Bauhaus-inspired motifs that are original drawings by Vasconcelos.

3. Bom Bom 200 sofa

While this cosy two-seater boasts most of the same highlights as the other BomBom sofas, this model features small and medium back cushions and is available in four different sizes and shapes. You can also combine both the BomBom 200 and 310 if you prefer to lounge on an extended couch.

4. Perdicao Pontos cushion and rug

Need cushions to go with your sofa? Try pairing it with the Perdicao Pontos cushion, also designed by Vasconcelos. The chromatic patterns—a distinctive feature of her work—are printed and embroidered on velvet. A hand-tufted rug featuring the same pattern is also available.
