The perfect secondhand sofa does exist, in some dimension of this universe.
That dimension is not the dimension I live in.
This is unfortunate, because we are in the market for a sofa for our second living room and we want to be mindful of our spending. And apparently, in the dimension I live in, that means limiting ourselves to jewels beyond our wildest imagination. Jewels out of The Twilight Zone. Or someone’s basement.
Take this Craigslisted jewel, for instance. Hello, DIY reupholstery job. (I hope?)
This next one “could use a light cleaning.” Or burning. A light burning. Yes. (EWlookatthosepillows.)
“Picture may show otherwise, but they are gently used.” Gently used by…dogs?
My guess? This one IS the perfect used sofa. But I’ll never know, what with the high-quality picture we have going on here.
Really, though, just when I thought my searches were in vain, I found this. Buy one floral sectional, get 15 matching accent pillows free.
I was not paid or perked by Craigslist to promote the sale of these sofas. Obviously.
