Description

We’ve had several Percival Lafer sofas and chairs over the years, and this MP-163 “Earth” model sofa is by far the most comfortable. The scoop style and high-back design cradles and supports the body all the way up to the head. To put it simply, it has a “gangster lean”. The scoop allows your butt to sink down with a slight elevation of your legs. High enough for tall people to have head support, and low enough for short people to have their feet planted firmly on the floor. It’s a time-capsule quality couch that should be in the museum of Brazilian Modern Design. Procured from the original owner who purchased in Oregon in the late 1970s, where it sat virtually untouched for decades.

Complete matching living room group with any of our Percival Lafer end tables, coffee table or lounge chair with ottoman — sold separately. Please inquire for details and pricing.

This butterscotch cognac leather is really the quintessentially perfect color for the style and tone of the solid rosewood frame. As tasteful and inviting today as it was 4 decades ago, the diamond-sewn and pinch-tufted upholstery drips with texture and character. This parquet patchwork of square, interlocking panels covers the fronts, while the back has a smoother curve of stretched leather that nestles onto the frame. The leather has been thoroughly cleaned and conditioned. A few square panel sections appear to have been replaced. These replacement panels are not an exact color match.

Barely influenced by northern European design compared to most of his colleagues in his early days as a designer, Lafers’ work has always been traced back to his Brazilian roots. The diffuse use of local woods, the strength and hardness of his elegant designs and the warm colors of his fabrics and leathers, make him a fundamental figure in the evolution and affirmation of Brazilian design, both inside and outside the country’s borders.
