Mah Jong

In the 1970s, Hans Hopfer created Mah Jong sofas.  Loungy orange sofas that are modular like a Mah Jong are perfect for creative types.  You can organize the sectional pieces however you like.  We also love them in alternating fabric choices for a total Bohemian vibe.  Check out Roche Bobois for a rich Mah Jong composition that will fill your senses with delight!  If you’re doing apartment living and need the space, two easy sectionals gives the same effect.

  1. I am a child of the 50’s and 60’s and I remember how popular orange was during that period. It also gave us avocado green and an obnoxious yellow. This all seems very ‘retro’. Feels good to reset every now and then.

  2. My high school was orange carpeted and orange everywhere! Maybe there was something to that.. nice read! ?
