Hello Friends, and welcome to another unmissable offering from Lord Browns Furniture, the UK’s premier resource for fine Sofas and Chairs.
On offer on this occasion is quite possibly one of the most-desirable and sought-after large-scale sofas available today, it being a rare opportunity to acquire a gorgeous “Mah Jong” sofa, consisting of a number of sofa-units capable of making numerous seating-configurations, from the world renown French furniture house of Roche Bobois, and benefitting from the most stunning, elegant and striking special-edition fabric from Jean Paul Gaultier.
As you will no doubt be aware by your interest in this Hans Hopfer masterpiece, 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, and there can be no-better expression of that philosophy than this doyen of the seating-world
Dressed in the most impressive, high-grade and sensationally-detailed Jean Paul Gaultier fabric in a palette of pale-creams and dark-blues, with accents of soft, vivid pinks and mid-blue. Whilst being exceptionally durable, its softness and texture is simply divine to the touch, and provides a tactile-experience like few others.
This piece is in original, beautifully-maintained condition but does possess a number of issues, amongst them a few missing buttons (which will be replaced for the new owner prior to delivery) and some light but noticeable, superficial marks, blemishes and spots of discolouration (acquired whilst in storage rather than through use, and as illustrated in part by the final images provided) to almost all sides of the cushions, so is clearly far from perfect. That said, and as i hope the images will confirm, these issues are of modest consequence and, these things aside, is nothing short of a joy and a pleasure to behold.
Please view the images provided to confirm its superb, original condition and breathtaking appearance. A more wonderfully-executed example of modern, informal seating is difficult to imagine and, with all of the possibilities it offers configuration-wise, is a truly accomplished and talented all-rounder.
In its current condition, it would clearly fall-short of the requirements of the true-perfectionist but, 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, and is dressed in one of the most unashamedly-luxurious and striking fabrics imaginable.
This incredible suite consists of 6 ottoman-cushions (each measuring H-19cm x W-95cm and D-95cm) and 2 adjustable-backrests (with the rare multi-position function, as illustrated in the later images provided where the backrest are in the “up” position to offer full head/neck support) and, honestly, can be employed however you prefer. As you will see from the images provided, we have chosen to double-cushion our seats (to achieve the most-likely seat-height to be used) and have created a typical sofa configuration (as we would expect it to be used) but, in our experience, as many people choose to single-cushion the seats than do not (in order to provide huge-scale seating and create massive floor-coverage) too so, really, the possibilities are (almost) endless, and the decision as to how you use all of this exceptionally-flexible and practical seating is entirely yours.
For reference, the first configuration pictured measures H-72cm x W-380cm x D-95cm, the second configuration pictured measuring H-72cm x W-190cm x D-95cm, and the third configuration measuring H-72cm, W-285cm and D-95cm, so hope this is helpful regarding understanding its scale.
The breathtaking seating position this iconic modern-design creates is enhanced by the use of sumptuously comfortable, generously upholstered back and seat cushioning (which, as the images will confirm, is particularly soft and squishy), which leaves you powerless to resist its charms. Famously comfortable beyond compare.
Costing in excess of £18,000 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 £120, 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.
