A modular black leather sofa with innovative articulated arms ( can be up or down into the unit) the back lifts off to reveal some storage.


Amazing as a pairs of chairs, or two smaller sofas. These four pieces can be arranged as two pairs single chairs, one large sofa, or two smaller sofas.


Labels to the underside. Size relates to one unit. Brazilian architect, furniture designer, and product developer Percival Lafer championed.


Often referred to by collectors as the "best-kept secret" of Mid-Century Modern design, Lafer made an indelible contribution to Brazilian design. Lafer studied architecture at the prestigious Mackenzie Presbyterian University in São Paulo.


Soon after graduating, Lafer’s father passed away unexpectedly, leaving the family furniture store to his sons. Lafer was forced to abandon his career in architecture before it had begun, diverting instead to furniture design, a career he could pursue more easily due to the nature of his inherited business.
