The 1950s

Specialising in camping furniture, Lafuma Mobilier is a true symbol of French knowledge and experience. The brand created the first metal-framed back pack, combining steel tubing and fabrics. In 1954, in the euphoria of the Glorious Thirty (or so-called Golden Age of Capitalism), this know-how inspired us to offer our first range of light, transportable outdoor furniture. Going with French families on holiday, offering clever, comfortable solutions which fitted right into the car boot: “Lafuma Mobilier was part of this joy! ”

Relax !

This could have been a slogan reflecting society’s culture back then, optimistic and smiling. It would be the name of a product, symbolic of our brand and of our knowledge which would endure over time - simple, light, and above all very comfortable: the Relax armchair. Possibly part of the first lunar voyage inspired its unbelievable 127° position, the natural position of the body when weightless. It was definitely the explosion in research and health-consciousness in “leisure” furniture: a true revolution.

Pop up !

Still innovating, and staying with current trends, the Pop Up emerged onto beaches, living rooms and gardens in 1992. It was a very compact size for transporting, and very spacious when opened out, both at the same time. An “agile” and clever design, foreseeing a society that would become more active.

Designed and Made in Anneyron

Today, we sell our products all over the world. We are known and recognised for the quality of our expertise, coloured with a touch of French inspiration: we take care with our choices of fabric weave and colours. From its origins in Anneyron, the company has always been based in the Drôme area. It is there that everything is thought of, designed and manufactured. Over these past 20 years, we have registered around a dozen patents in the furniture sector, such as our elastomere clips, which offer firmer comfort. Made in Anneyron, today this is the guarantee of being able to control product design and manufacturing while integrating the entire production line: We prefer durable quality over cheap manufacturing from the other side of the world… We encourage local development and recruitment and we mainly use regional partners. We have also forged strong links with our suppliers. Their geographic proximity helps with replacements and allows for quick turnaround times.

“The future” is everything...

We are committed to the “right to relaxation” in a world which moves ever faster: comfort to combat stress has become a real struggle for our times! And also we act and fight for environmentally friendly and sustainable consumption. Made In France - it is therefore our guarantee of making quality, durable and practical products, to bring you amazing comfort, wherever you want to be!
