Nicolas Roche talks about the stellar pieces in the showroom of the furniture brand founded

At the recent official opening of Roche Bobois in Singapore, the top French retailer of luxurious home furnishings, guests were given a sneak preview of its latest collections. That elicited admiration from the crowd, with each collection being given a fascinating introduction. And we can see why.
