On offer on this occasion is a huge, sensationally-proportioned “Guarana” L-Shape Sofa from the world renown French furniture house of Roche Bobois, benefitting from the most stunning, thick Bright Red, Heavily-Grained Leather upholstery, Wenge Base/Legs with a brushed steel trim, and a brace of headrests able to be freely located anywhere across the piece.
As you will no doubt be aware by your interest in this rare beauty, Roche Bobois pieces are the epitome of contemporary European furniture design, are of peerless quality, and exhibit detailing and execution of an unrivalled standard.
In a world of temporary pleasures, Roche Bobois create beautiful furniture that remains a joy forever.
Dressed in the most impressive, high-grade, thick, tactile yet stunningly-resilient Leather Upholstery option in a wonderfully-bold Bright Red. Whilst being as robust and hard-wearing as rhino skin, its softness and texture (as illustrated in the close-up images provided) is simply divine to the touch.
Whilst deliberately possessing a beguillingly-relaxed and informal appearance, this piece is in superb, impeccably-maintained condition and, other than the fact that it was employed in the games-room of its previous home (and, as a consequence, has been exposed to smoke in the past. We have had it professionally cleaned and treated in order to minimise this issue but, despite our very best efforts, this may piece may not meet the requirements of those with an acute-sensitivity to smoke), its handsome order reflects the TLC and light, considerate use afforded it in the past (reassuringly, it is as immaculate underneath the cushions as it is on top!) but, as you would expect when considering the nature and colour of this particular piece, it does show some modest signs of use.
As you would reasonably expect, the seat cushions and armrests have some light (and i mean light!) marks across them, and there is the odd small mark to the rear of both sections acquired during a recent house move but, as the images provided will attest, these issues prove to be of modest overall significance and, rather than being mentioned because they detract hugely from the beauty of the piece, are mentioned purely for the purposes of accuracy. In truth, a better-conditioned example of this piece is unlikely to become available anytime soon so, if your interest in this is genuine, do not delay!.
Please view the images provided to confirm its fantastic condition and appearance. Some of the close-up images have lightened the appearance of the leather, so the best representation of the true colour of this hide is seen in the images where it appears at its darkest. That said, a more wonderfuly-executed example of modern, informal seating is difficult to imagine and, by offering so much acreage and seating capacity, it is an exceptionally practical choice too. An accomplished and talented all-rounder!
In its current condition, it would meet the requirements of all but the perfectionist, and for someone looking for a piece of high-design to position at the heart of family life, it is truly heaven sent! This superb piece possesses all the beauty and majesty of the finest contemporary furniture money can buy.
Dimensions-wise, its a whopper! When configured, it measures 310cm across the back of the left-side, armed section (as you look at it on the images) and 230cm down the length of the shorter right-hand Chaise section, and stands 90cm high.
IMPORTANT! Should you have an interest in securing this piece, please make sure you have sufficient space available to accomodate its gargantuan proportions. Failure to do so could end in severe mental anguish upon delivery!
Due to the sectional nature of this piece, rest assured that it dismantles easily into its 2 component sections, so is able to be transported, installed and rebuilt without issue.
The breathtaking seating position this iconic modern-design creates is enhanced by the use of sumptuously comfortable, generously upholstered feather-filled back and composite-filled seat cushioning, which leaves you powerless to resist its charms.
Costing in excess of £6,000 when new, it represents spectacular value for money, and we have no doubt it will serve and delight its new owner for many years to come.
Delivery of this piece to most UK mainland addresses will cost £180, and can be organised on behalf of the winning bidder upon request using one of our hand-picked panel of specialist, fully-insured independent furniture couriers.
