Actually, according to Furniture of Dalton, modern sectional sofas sprouted in popularity during the 1950’s, at a time when iconic American designers, such as Charles and Ray Eames, redefined the shape and style of furniture.

Hefer – his real last name — grew up in Johannesburg with a decidedly unartistic background. From high school athlete to army conscript to graphic designer, he eventually landed at Hunt Lascaris advertising as a commercial artist. From there, he evolved into his current work, armed with plenty of self-described “big ideas.” Hefer has said that his designs spring from a single question: Why does a chair have to be a chair? His collective works are a vivid representation of the fact that it doesn’t have to be.
