    Letís make fun of furniture manuafacturers

    Let’s make fun of furniture manufacturers and some of their clients. Probably I am one of those! Haha. I just signed up for the app of a high end online furniture purveyor, Perigold, which is a subdivision of Wayfair.

    i’m an old fogey and there are so many things to make fun of on that site. So so many. Oh my, good Lord, and oy vey!


    There tends be a lot of old fogeys on this website so perhaps you will enjoy my tour through the land of ridiculous.


    First on our stop today is this sofa.When I first saw it I had to do a double check of the website because I thought perhaps I ended up on a thrift store site. The sofa is actually for sale, new. You could pay a lot of money for it.


    Everything about it says circa 1986. I’m not gonna tell you how much it is and you are cheating if you look it up. But I would like you to guess how much you have to pay to have the sofa in your living room. Although I wouldn’t be surprised if many of us don’t already have this sofa in our living room from decades ago!

    How much do you think it is? This is on the higher end of spectrum in this higher end website just to give you a hint.

    The number of incredibly ugly very expensive sofas astonishes me. Who buys these things? Arabian princes? These are too gaudy for even Donald Trump.

    The floral sofa with design sensibility circa 1986 is $11,420.

    yes.

    of course those circa 1978 pillows in that quilted grey poly fabric drives up the price I guess.
