Boca Raton, Florida (PressExposure) January 27, 2012 -- One Thousand Ocean announces its collaboration with Roche Bobois, a global leader in the design and distribution of home furnishings. As a result of the alliance, Roche Bobois selected one of eight new residences available for immediate occupancy as a stage for some of its high-end furniture.
"A worldwide symbol of fine European furniture and design, Roche Bobois offers a richness and contemporary elegance compatible with the lifestyle of One Thousand Ocean residents and prospective purchasers," said Jamie Telchin, president of development for LXR Luxury Resorts & Hotels. An LXR affiliate developed the highly successful Ocean-to-Intracoastal condominium building located at the Boca Raton Inlet and adjacent to the Boca Raton Resort's Beach Club.
"While the impetus for staging a residence was our desire to help sophisticated, affluent prospects envision themselves living there, we believe that those same prospects appreciate the beauty and international appeal of Roche Bobois furniture and accessories. Plus, if a prospect decides to purchase the residence, there's the option of buying the furniture pieces and the benefit of the expertise of the interior designer who placed the furnishings within the beautiful spaces," Telchin explained.
Many One Thousand Ocean residents come from outside the U.S. and are familiar with Roche Bobois, which has 240 locations around the globe. Twenty-four locations are in the U.S., with two in Florida. Furthermore, the company's elite cadre of international designers includes Jean Paul Gaultier, Emanuel Ungaro and Missoni, to name just a few.
General Manager Julien Bigan and interior designer Patrick Cabaroc at Roche Bobois in Coral Gables, Florida agree that One Thousand Ocean - with its uniquely modern design and expansive walls of glass - provides the ideal venue for Roche Bobois to showcase some of its furnishings. "We love the uniqueness of the building and it is the perfect match with our iconic pieces. The residents at One Thousand Ocean and our customers have the same demographic profile. They also have impeccable taste and style," Bigan remarked.
For over 50 years, Roche Bobois has crafted home furnishings in Europe with exceptional originality and skill. Each piece, customizable to suit any taste or mood, has a character that is truly unique and exclusive, resulting from a group effort between designers, manufacturers and Roche Bobois. Roche Bobois furniture is available in multiple compositions (e.g., materials, colors, finishes, sizes, shapes). The company's talented team includes designers, artists and architects who join pleasure with practicality and pair creativity with functionality as they bring dreams to life.
Only 12 residences are available at One Thousand Ocean, eight of which are ready for immediate occupancy. In addition, Penthouses may be completely customized. Prices range from approximately $3 million to $15 million. One Thousand Ocean residents who elect private membership privileges at the neighboring Boca Raton Resort & Club enjoy access to the amenities and services of a world-class vacation destination.
