Sad Sad Sofa

My friend Susan is moving this week from Chicago to San Diego. I cannot imagine why! We have glorious, dramatic season changes here, and a lovely lakefront. She sold a lot of her beautiful like new furniture. We got a very nice, long sofa and two classy looking side chairs. We are so happy to be able to banish this horrible sofa to the junk heap.

That's it, outside in the rain. I like to think it is weeping tears of humiliation for being so excessively uncomfortable, and for the upholstery fading well before it should. We will never ever buy from Thomasville again after this expensive travesty. Our experience with this purchase reminds me of the Chevy Vega my parents bought when we were kids, and it was such a horrible car, it ruined us for Chevrolet forever.

We feel much sadder about Susan moving away! Farewell, Susan! Safe Travels!

We had a similar experience with a Broyhill sofa before, but I think we did buy Broyhill again. I'm surprised someone hasn't snatched up your sad sofa from the curb already... you know how that goes! Sorry your friend is moving away, but happy you got new furniture. :o)

It really is sadder looking up close. I sewed up slipcovers in a slightly different denim, but just on the bottom seatcushions. We did vacuum it out for the curb! In my experience, our neighbors go for kids toys, but not old sofas.
