Y'all, there's so much more. In fact, one could dedicate an entire blog to this.
And the hits keep coming.
Apparently NYC is stocked full of furniture upholstered with old Cosby sweaters.
This might be forgivable if the man was trying to sell it for $50, but really, the man is charging $200 for this. My only concession is that at least it's not advertised as beautiful. I do take issue with this claim: "multi-purpose solution for any room environment, guest room or basement." This sofa isn't a solution to anything unless the problem is "I need more ugly in my life."
Craigslist is full of ugly shit sold by overachievers. Would you pay $300 for this old ass grandma couch? Me neither.
Let's hope no one out there is willing to fork over $300 to turn their house into a Bob Evan's lobby. It probably smells like sausage gravy and beef tips.
Now this seller is selling their sofa for a reasonable price considering how heinous it is, but here's what I don't get...The ad reads, "I PAID ALMOST $3000 FOR THIS SOFA." That's not a selling point, it's an embarrassment. I'm trying to think of a time when something like this was ever so in demand that you could charge $3,000 for it. Just because you made a horrible life choice after seeing too many episodes of HGTV does not mean someone will want your crap more.
On a slightly different note, I've been watching the progress of a certain sofa intently. I was first taken with the completely ridiculously sized photograph the seller posted. Instead of realizing no one was interested in a couch that someone was clearly trying to hide, and posting a picture that might be useful, he's been reposting the same ad, cutting the price significantly each time.

TRY RESIZING YOUR DAMN PHOTO!Also, can we calm down with the Eames era claims. People are playing pretty fast and loose with the term, i.e. THIS:
Just because it's ugly, has clean lines, and has had multiple generations of bare ass all over it doesn't mean it's Eames era. Go ahead and search Eames era furniture on a NYC Craigslist and behold the insanity. Shout out to Lucy!
