"I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not f*#k, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane." - Looking for Alaska by John Green.
I sat on this quote as they sat on this couch. I am glad they did not hook up on top of me. A sofa has dignity that most do not recognize. Please leave the lovemaking for the bedroom not the living room.
Though I would have to say that there is a certain longing for comfort that I can understand. I'm a couch after all, I'm supposed to give people a place to reflect upon. Or to stare blankly at a wall. The point is the soft cushions that embrace your ass. Without those, all is lost.
-Danish teak couch, 75" long (6'3") 26.5" tall, 26" wide
-All cushions have had foam replaced and covers washed
-New straps have been added in seats as well as new clips.
-Seats are supported by a secondary wood frame, probably poplar or maple as it is very strong to hold the strapping.
-"Made In Denmark" stamps all over.
Well hello readers :)
I see you've found me. I am a pretty surprsing piece of furniture. I'm the colour of autumn in the Gatineau hills; like that Irish Setter that you knew as a child. The hue that comes to mind when someone whispers, "metamorphasis".
I come from a passed time, one where sipping bourbon was a pleasure and men bought Buicks for their wives. I'm tweed like a hunters jacket on the misty moors. My legs may show a ding or two but's to be expected from a chair like me.
If leaning to the rear in interior contemplation is your desire, I've got your back.
Please let me share your indoor habitat. I fit in with many an unusual fellow. Why just yesterday a fine adventurer from Spain sat upon my springs. Last month is it was a gentle English lady, a woman who appreciated a fine seat.
I am a chair of strong constitution and material integrity. To know me is to understand traditional modernity. I'm a well spoken dreamer; a wanderer of living rooms and studies.
