Sad sofa story

Nicky at work sent me this wonderful sofa (Thank you!), which made my day however there is a sad story behind it.

‘It’s an old family sofa.  It started life at my mum and dad’s house for years and then moved to my brothers house for a few years before it took its last breathe of life!

My brother then stored it in a garage for a couple of years and never moved it, so big sister (me) took charge and arranged for it to be moved to my front garden and it is currently waiting for a council collection and it will be removed from our life forever.’

It really is amazing how many memories furniture and objects conjure. I think this sums up why I am interested in discarded furniture really well.
