Designed by Lauren Rottet, an array of sophisticated ideas in lounge furniture, occasional tables and guest chairs, the Rottet by Decca collection matches the renowned interior architect’s clean signature and timeless architectural elegance with the refined, handcrafted quality of Decca.
Rottet by Decca comprises two chairs, two-seat and three-seat and sectional sofas, benches, coffee tables and more. The line works together as a collection or can be specified as part of an eclectic mix with other furnishings.
To bring the design vision to reality, Rottet and Decca began an open-ended collaboration with few formal limitations and a focus on innovation and highquality materials. The resulting line, in keeping with Rottet’s style, shuns trendiness and instead derives from careful thought and studied proportions. Like many of her past designs, these pieces could very well become classics
The collection derives from two simple concepts; firstly simple shapes bend to transform into kinetic pieces, creating visual movement. Secondly, the combination of materials with no visible edge creates a fascinating effect as light reflects differently from each material.
Distinctive details such as perfectly flared arms and detached backs lend visual excitement and complexity to the designs. Inspirations for the collection include historic Asian forms and minimalist art, distilled through award-winning stylistic imprint.

Decca is a unique manufacturer in the Asian market for its commitment to environmental goals and practices. For that reason, all of the woods are plentiful species sourced exclusively from sustainably managed forests, including the Oak Burl and Imbuya. “More than anything,” says Rottet, “I appreciated their ability to engage in the process it takes to produce unique and highly detailed furniture – and to work well with wood, metal and upholstery.”
The result is a refined and entirely new expression – an instant classic. Rottet, who has designed collections for several industry-leading manufacturers, says, “Having worked with Decca, I knew they were ready for the challenge of engineering and producing complex designs while making the pieces appear simple.”
