So ugly it's cool...maybe


Perhaps I've gone a bit mad, but I kind of like this thing. If matched with the right wall colour and a few awesome cushions, this set could be ugly/fantastic. But I could be wrong. Before I make a huge mistake by bringing it home, what do you think? Ugly/fantastic or just plain ugly? Keep in mind, it's on Dublin Waste, and therefore, free.

I think it has potential.

I'm unsure :( but I reckon you'll get it and turn it into something very special with a little imagination

i say get it, paint the wood white, and recover it in yellow and pink stripes.

redo the covers and it will be amazing!

Yeah recovering it would look pretty awesome...if my covering skills weren't so under-par. Never actually tried it before to be honest.

Cover it and paint the wood and you could be onto a winner. We got one similar to that years ago- it had a plain brown fabric so was a bit less offensive and the wooden frame was very similar but more rounded. I have to say it was very comfy and was fairly stylish after we'd made a few alterations!

I say: no way, unless you're willing to totally revamp it. I like that it has built in cushions and the leg shape is good but that's about it.

so ugly it's cool...i'm just wondering did you ever do anything with this settee set? i actually like it and i thought that maybe in the correct setting with a funky few cushions and a retro coffee table to go with you've the perfect retro-mosh vibe going on for you or the right client...
would love to see a picture if you did get it...
