Original concept was a 1937 surrealist sofa by Salvador Dalí. That wood-and-pink satin sofa was shaped after the lips of actress Mae West, Dali found her fascinating tho' the sofa was a commissioned piece. Later pop culture of the 1960's and 1970's took the motif and ran with varying designs . Usually in red and often called "Marilyn " lips (after actress Marilyn Monroe who was a larger than life and more recent cinema sex goddess) .
