Vintage 1970s Percival Lafer MP-163 “Earth” living room set. This set is truly a remarkable find! The set is in time capsule quality in absolutely beautiful original condition! You would be hard pressed to find this set in such incredible shape and complete with everything you need. This group includes a standard size sofa, armchair, two ottomans and two end tables. The two end tables can be pushed together to create a coffee table. If you’re into Lafer, you’re in luck! We also have another set of parquet wood Lafer end tables that are sold separate from this group. Even better, we have an additional Lafer coffee table and set of matching end tables (sold separate). Inquire if you are interested in any of these additional Lafer pieces.
We’ve had several Percival Lafer sofas and chairs over the years, and this MP-163 “Earth” model 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 scoops allow 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. Beyond the comfort, It’s not easy to let this set go, knowing how awesome it would look in my house. It’s a time-capsule quality assemblage that should be in the museum of Brazilian Modern Design. Procured from the original owner who purchased in Oregon in the late 70’s, where it sat virtually untouched for decades. The end tables and seating are prominently labeled with both paper (underneath) and metal tags (on fronts)
This reddish cognac leather is really the quintessentially perfect color for the style and tone of the solid rosewood frames. 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 backs are a smooth, seamless curve of stretched leather that nestles onto the frame. The leather has been thoroughly cleaned and conditioned. The color and texture are uniform throughout with no visible discoloration.
