Mah Jong : The Shabby Shiek Sofa Sectional from Roche Bobois
Shabby Sheik is in and Roche Bobois shows the colorful side of the less formal furniture movement here with their Mah Jong modular sofa sectional from designer Hans Hopfer. The Les Contemporains Collection by the leader in high end Modern and Provincial furniture from France offers a strikingly bold seating arrangement that is reminiscent of the 60’s or 70’s thanks to floral patterns and harvest gold fabrics. The Mah Jong sectional consists of three basic elements including armless chairs, corner sections, and large square ottomans that can also be used independently for serious lounging or lying. Sectional pieces range from $700 to $2,000.
One nice aspect of this modular sectional is the ability to rearrange it and make a different layout as the mood or room requirements change. With a little imagination one can create a sofa, love seat or a chair with ottoman and even disperse to other rooms just to mix things up. The choice of fabrics in this version is simply stunning and shows some thinking outside the box as they say.
This striking arrangement is fashion forward to say the least and certainly not for everyone. We really like the combination of thick heavy corduroy and floral prints that you will definitely not see down the street at your neighbors. The super low profile really make this a retro living room group that is a welcoming place to relax.
