Look at the sad Old Couch. It is sad, being left out on the curb, such as it is, to be rejected, even by the garbage scroungers. Our next door neighbor will come out, the next day, to save the couch cover. But the couch, alas, is too far gone for redemption.
Here is the New Couch, purchased at Form + Function. They delivered it today. It is smaller, and so makes our living room, such as it is, appear larger. This is just the first in many future purchases to make our small home into a viable living space. Next, contemporary shelving, a mod chair, a secretary, some art, a coat of paint, and a rug from Overstock.com. We may join the 21st century yet!
