The iconic Mah Jong sofa greets you at the door of the newly opened Roche Bobois store on the corner of Hudson and De Waterkant streets. Celebrating 50 years since its creation in 1971, when designer Hans Hopfer created this modular sofa, the Mah Jong is dressed in new fabrics designed by Kenzo Takada, Jean Paul Gaultier or Missoni Home and set on elegant platforms that enhance its silhouette and make it even more comfortable.

Take a few more steps deeper in-store and you’re met with the equally elegant Profile sofa, which combines a 1950s-inspired shape with a contemporary base. The rich velvet upholstery of this best-selling sofa exudes sophistication and comfort. A few more steps and it’s obvious why Roche Bobois has become the world leader in luxury furniture, but you’ll have to go and see for yourself.
