Roche Bobois Sofas

The Roche Bobois brand has long been synonymous with stylish, high-quality seating — including sofas, lounge chairs, sectional sofas and more — that possesses an enticing French flair.

Founded in Paris in 1960 by the families Roche and Chouchan after discussions that materialized at a furniture fair in Copenhagen, the company grew exponentially in the subsequent decades. The firm’s name, Roche Bobois, derived from Au Beau Bois, the name of the showroom where the Chouchans had been selling furniture on Boulevard de Sébastopol in Paris. The newly minted Roche Bobois began initially as an importer of Scandinavian furniture to the French capital. Following a national advertising campaign in Elle magazine, their offerings became a huge success. It didn’t take long for the company to shift toward producing their own contemporary furniture line.

In the 1970s, as cable television programming expanded into more homes, furniture manufacturers prioritized the production of living room couches and lounges, and Roche Bobois debuted their sofa-centric Les Contemporains collection. The brand’s celebrated seating over the years has included everything from creative mid-century modern armchairs to leather loveseats produced in the 1980s and more. One of its best-selling furniture designs has been the modular Mah Jong sofa, designed by Hans Hopfer in 1971.

Composed of low seating elements and large cushions, the Mah Jong sofa has been in production since its debut and has seen some high-profile fabric updates by Jean Paul Gaultier and Japanese clothing designer Kenzo Takada, who worked with Roche Bobois to craft fabrics emblazoned with geometrically dynamic patterns to be used as upholstery for the firm’s iconic piece of furniture. Worldwide, over 500,000 Mah Jong cushions have been sold, and Roche Bobois has expanded globally since its founding to open more than 200 stores in 50 countries.

'Mah Jong' Living Room Set by Jean Paul Gaultier for Roche Bobois, Signed
By Jean Paul Gaultier, Roche Bobois, Hans Hopfer
Located in Los Angeles, CA
This large 22-piece living room set designed by Hans Hopfer for Roche Bobois, is called the "Mah Jong" sectional sofa with fabric and leather selections by Jean Paul Gaultier. Signed with Roche Bobois / Jean Paul Gaultier labels and repeat fabric. Included in this set are twenty two (22) pieces in total which include 12 square seat cushions (which also function as large ottomans and can be stacked), 4 straight backs, 2 corner backs, and 4 throw pillows. Unique to this set, which is quite rare, of the twenty two total pieces, two are light blue leather cushions with two light blue leather seat backs. The best part of this set is that you can mix and match the cushions and seat backs to make any style arrangement you wish, and create a customized room which you can change as frequently as your heart desires... you can create small and large sofas, loveseats, lounge chairs and ottomans using the cushions and seat backs. We also have other large Mah Jong sets available which can be combined with this set, if desired. Contact us for more details. Ideal for all kinds of uses... consider this set for a large screening room, den or living room, bedroom seating, entertainment room, commercial uses such as a hotel or boutique lounge, you can even spread the pieces around the house and put some in a large walk-in closet / dressing room, kids room, classroom or training room, and for those limited on space in an apartment - you can stack the cushions and then spread them out when you have company. A great way to make the most of space by keeping versatile with this Roche Bobois Mah Jong seating system. Originally designed in 1971 by Hans Hopfer the 'Mah Jong' seating system is as iconic today as it was then. Here is what Roche Bobois has to say about this design and the designer: Painter, sculptor, designer... Hans Hopfer designed sofas that are, for many, the indisputable “signature” of Roche Bobois’ collections. In the 1970s, Hopfer’s innovative and informal approach to comfort had a profound influence on the way people furnished and arranged their living space. In 1971, he created the Mah Jong, a sofa based on the total freedom of function and form. Starting with three basic elements that can be combined or stacked, the Mah Jong allows limitless options of composition. It can be an armchair, sofa, lounge chair or bed; a space in which to rest, to play or to lounge. It encourages experimentation and breaks the rules of formal living, reflecting the nonconformist era in which it was born. Avant-garde when first created, iconic today, and “dressed” by Missoni Home, Kenzo Takada and Jean Paul Gaultier, this “free form” modular seating is the reference point for fully modular and creative design. This large Mah Jong sectional sofa system by Hans Hopfer for Roche Bobois would work great in a Post-Modern, Mid-Century Modern, Space Age Mod, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Zen / Minimalism room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Hollywood Regency, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Use this set to create sofa sections, settee sections, easy chair sections, ottomans and chaises, even a large daybed or room sized night-bed using...

'Mah Jong' 14-Piece Living Room Set by Kenzo Takada for Roche Bobois, Signed
By Roche Bobois, Hans Hopfer
Located in Los Angeles, CA
This incredibly large living room set designed by Hans Hopfer and edited in collaboration with Kenzo Takada for Roche Bobois, is called the "Mah Jong" sectional sofa. Included in this set are fourteen (14) pieces in total which include 7 square seat cushions (which also function as large ottomans and can be stacked), 1 panoramic seat cushion, 2 straight seat backs, 1 flip-up seat back, 2 corner seat backs and 1 panoramic seat back. We have several other Mah Jong sets including Missoni fabric sets so you can add to this set and combine to make a larger one if desired. What we love about this particular set is threefold... first it is comprised of only Kenzo Takada specialty fabrics. If you are familiar with Roche Bobois pricing system, specialty fabric elements can cost more than double the plain or simple fabric counterparts. Most sets will incorporate a portion of plain or simple fabric elements but rarely do you see sets like this where every single piece is a home run. And the fabric selection/ curation on this set is simply exquisite. Second, this set is in excellent almost-new condition. Roche Bobois introduced the Kenzo Takada collection in 2017 so this set is less than 5 years old. See below for more condition details. And third, the configuration is absolutely perfect and ideal for so many living spaces. It has three-corner elements and one of them is a Panoramic corner seat. It's great to get one Panoramic corner in a set as it is the ideal spot to stretch out and lounge - if this were my set and I had this at home, that is the spot I would choose most of the time. And the additional 2 corners allows you to wrap this set around a room and create the most cozy of cozy conversation pits. Plus having a flip-top seat back is so great, it brings a little of that Italian Maralunga style into the room. And what people love most about the Mah Jong system is that you can mix and match the cushions and seat backs to make any style arrangement you wish, and create a customized room which you can change as frequently as your heart desires... you can create small and large sofas, loveseats, lounge chairs and...
