Go with the red and gold
The amount of fugly couches still being produced is quite astounding, such as this red and gold number.
Just yesterday I was shopping for a bed with my mates Frank and Elaine - took them to the den of blandness that is Harvey Norman, aka Ikea without the Swedish meatballs. They were looking for a bed and you can do worse than Harvey Norman (but we did better at Forty Winks - my ability to find a bargain was once again affirmed, F&E were so impressed with the groundwork I'd done recently for my own bed purchase they're now hoping I may need to buy a car or computer in the next few weeks).
Anyways, was left rather speechless as I walked in the door and saw a rather hideous purple faux-suede number. Unfortunately no pics available. But it's quite shocking, really, that a place that should be selling middle-of-the road, inoffensive furniture would bother stocking such fugliness. And at a cost of about $3000. That's just shite.
