As we reach the half-way point of the Ugly Couch Contest, I figured I should feature a couple more "Ugly" couches. You know it's an ugly couch, when the previous owners wouldn't let you buy their house without taking ownership of the couch. Here's Jolene's story and couch:
I think we can all agree that this sectional hearkens back to a simple time; a time where polyester leisure suits and disco music were our only cares. Come, have a seat. Feel the caress of bullet-proof artificial multi-tone brown and green brocade under your seat, and the still-present sheen of artificial wood paneling under your hands. What's this? You're having a party? Simply wheel out the portable coffee table from one of the two docking stations and a grab bag cheezies from the secret lazy-Susan chamber in the centre of this sectional. This fantastic couch was actually a condition of sale on the house we just purchased. Even with new paint and flooring, this magnificient beast had to stay.
A common theme this year is also, "Getting rid of the 'bought when we were married' sofa". Here's Kathy's couch:
We got married in July, 35 years ago. My Fiance found just the "perfect" couch in Winnipeg when he went to pick up the tuxedos for the wedidng. So the day after our wedding we went to buy this "just what we've been looking for" couch before leaving for our honeymoon. We didn't want to take the chance that it might be gone by the time we got back. It has served us well but I think it is time for a change.
