Vintage velour


First of all, apologies for being off the radar for a few days. My new job where I actually get paid to write stuff for the Web is keeping me busy. But now I've got a handle on the whole HTML authoring thing, I should be cool.
Anyways, check this out. Obviously quite the fugly little number in its own right - love the carved wood arms. But what truly fugs it up is the fact that the cushions are reversible. Yep, that dark brown one on the left isn't just there because a bad accident happened to one of the cushions, it's actually the flip side of all the other cushions. Apparently it gives you "the option of having a summer or winter look". My only concern with a couch in summer is the sweat patch factor. In winter, I don't want my butt to freeze on it. Colour - not so fussed about. Call me crazy (and you won't be the first one to do so), but am not fussing over the appropriateness of my couch to the seasons. We are not in a flip flops vs calf length boots shoe option debate here - it's furniture. It's in your house, not wandering the streets.

What this couch needs is some cigarette burns, spilt alcohol, crisps ion the cracks and a bud or two that has migrated under the cushions.

How about an old sandwich, too?

I truly loathe that reversible thing. Although, with kids and a dog... the designer could be on to something. Hmmmm...

Hmm... How could you resist the carved wood arms and the double-face cushions, Rebecca?
