Industry insiders have always known that oftentimes the best shopping scores are vintage, but it seems like even newbies have caught on. According to Chairish’s second annual Home Furnishing Resale Report, the resale market is roaring—spending in the category has doubled since last year. And of the brands included in the report, there was one clear front-runner when it came to sales: Ligne Roset. Thanks to our current obsession with all things nostalgic and a ’70s revival that’s still going strong, the brand has seen a 151 percent increase in demand since 2020. The one product customers are vying for most? The iconic Togo lounge chair by Michel Ducaroy.
The style’s laid-back low profile and cozy, shar-pei-like folds have been a magnet for in-the-know shoppers and cool creatives for a while now. It was the one that rose above when digital entrepreneur Alyssa Coscarelli had a living room full of sofas to choose from. It was a critical part of creators Jereme and Shelby Mendez’s plan to manifest their California dream home by buying furniture first. The Togo counts Beni Rug cofounder Robert Wright among its fans, who deems it the most important thing in his office next to his dog. Even Demi Lovato has a velvety version in the glam room of her modern farmhouse. The catch: A single Togo lounge chair could set you back almost $4,000 when bought brand-new.
While there’s no shortage of preowned Togo lounge chair options in every color of the rainbow, the secondhand version of this sought-after design is still quite pricey (we spotted ones for $2,162 and $2,850). So, after digging around the internet, we rustled up a selection of more affordable alternatives.
