A BOLD CHOICE Roche Bobois, the prominent Parisian furniture company, has been celebrating its iconic Mah Jong sofa collection for over 40 years. Originally designed by Hans Hopfer, Roche Bobois’ newest line of Mah Jongs is crafted with vibrant Missoni Home fabric. These comfortable and effervescent furniture pieces will add a pop of color to any room, making each sofa stand out on its own like a unique piece of artwork. You can now purchase these conversational pieces at the brand-new Roche Bobois showroom in Paramus, the first New Jersey location to open for the luxury brand. People of the NY/NJ metropolitan area have known and loved Roche Bobois for its lavish Madison Avenue location in the heart of New York City. The storefront transitioned across the Hudson late last year, giving New Jersey residents the chance to experience Roche Bobois’ lavish showroom on their side of the river.
