Furniture Inspired by French Shepherds

View all 8 Photos

Designed by Samuel Accoceberry for Bosc, the Yas collection draws inspiration from the Aquitaine shepherds of yore. Like the shepherds walked on stilts as they guarded their flocks, the Yas armchairs and sofas stand on wooden legs, holding aloft their downy seats. The pieces are made up of traditional French elements such as oak frames, feather stuffing, wool upholstery, and leather toggle clasps. Combined with the inspired design, the timeless materials imbue the furniture with the texture, warmth, and history.
