RRP £40,000 – Roche Bobois “Mah Jong” Sofa – In Missoni & Lelievre Fabric




More Information

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 any number of seating-configurations, from the world renown French furniture house of Roche Bobois, and benefitting from the most stunning combination of fine, decorative fabrics from Missoni of Italy, and thick, plush velvet-fabric from Lelievre of Paris.

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 these most-impressive, high-grade, thick, plush, tactile and satisfying fabric options which, as you will see, possesses the vivid, striking appearance these pieces are famed for. Whilst being as robust and durable as rhino skin, the softness and texture of these fabrics is simply divine to the touch. A tactile-experience like few others.

This piece is in superb, original, impeccably-maintained condition, having seen light, regular use in the family-area of its previous home. It does show modest signs of use, and has the odd light mark and blemish present as you might expect so is definitely not perfect but, honestly, in my experience is as good as any Mah Jong you could ever hope to find of this type on the second-user market.

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 fantastic condition, it would clearly meet the requirements of all but 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 some of the most unashamedly-luxurious and satisfying fabrics imaginable.

This incredible suite consists of 14 ottoman-cushions (each measuring H-19cm x W-95cm and D-95cm), 4 backrests, 2 corner-backrests and 6 large scatter-cushions, honestly, can be employed however you see or prefer. As you will recognise 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 7-seat sofa configuration (as we would possibly expect it to be used) but, in our experience, as many people choose to single-cushion the seats than do not (in order to achieve 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 U-shaped configuration pictured measures H-72cm x D-190cm x W-380cm, the second, straight configuration pictured measuring H-72cm x D – 95cm x W-540cm (both with an ottoman sized H-38cm x W-95cm x D-95cm employed separately) with the last L-shape configuration measuring H-72cm, W-380cm and D-380cm, 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 £40,000 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 £240, 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.
