Retro? No!, Ugly? YES!!


This couch is reminiscent of those seen at the Howard Johnson's Motels. I am not sure that this did NOT come from there at one time! It kind of smells like it might have been there. When you sit on this couch you are almost at floor level - of course the camping mat we use to hold up the cushions works a little bit. Do not attempt to sit on this couch if you have bad knees - you will have to roll to the floor to get up! HELP me get a new couch!!!!!

Wow, Just like my dog it skipped a shampoo.

I have recently been in several furniture stores and I have to say---they no longer even make this style of couch. Hopefully, this couch's owners will be named the winners so they can bring home something modern.

How much would it cost to spend the night on this couch? It looks like a retro Howard Johnson's piece of furniture!

The colors of this couch are sooooooo nasty and depressing. How would you ever decorate to match it?

Not only are the cushions completely uneven (the middle one is a good 2 1/2 inches higher than the other 2) but once you sit down, you need a friend to pull you back up.

What a depressing couch! It is so ugly and bleak. These people really need to win this contest so they can get some nice, vibrant colors in their home.

I have seen this piece of furniture in person and believe me, it is much worse than this picture conveys. The funniest part of this couch cannot be viewed in the picture. It has these square arms that have not been seen in at least three decades.

This couch looks worse than the one our dog sleep on at hunting camp!

What was the original color is this couch? I have looked at the pic over and over and cannot tell! What is wrong with the cushions? It sits so low----how in the world do people get up from it?

My heart truly goes out to the owner's of this "couch" and I use that term loosely! It is, by far, the most unattractive piece of furniture I have ever seen. They deserve to win this contest!

This smelly, sagging old couch is only a little scary, but trying to get off can be quite hairy! Help her get a new couch so her knees don't hit her in the face, when trying to sit in this space! Be gone with the scars-- send this baby to Mars.

Wow, this is ugly and sounds very smelly. It seems you would be better off just sitting on your camping mat. Good Luck.
