IKEA Ugly Sofa Contest

Wow! Look what I found:

It’s an ugly sofa contest through IKEA. What struck me as ironic is this: Ikea makes some awesome looking furniture, but what lies underneath is ugly! The ugly sofa contest will consist of some nasty looking sofas, no doubt, but I assure you many will be great sofas... perfectly built with sound materials. You should not dismiss your old sofa or judge it simply on how it looks!

Needless to say, people will miss the irony of this contest. I’ve seen what lies beneath the cool exterior of IKEA furnishings. Although Ikea has some awesome stuff, the upholstered pieces are sad and poorly built.

Henredon Sofa Uncovered

There was a day when the name Henredon evoked visions of style and integrity. If you owned a Henredon sofa, it was certain to be passed down to your children and even possibly their children. Henredon sofas were structurally second to none. This is no longer the case... at least with THIS particular Henredon sofa. First let me mention that this was NOT an inexpensive sofa! The owner of this sofa paid a high price for the name. We removed the fabric on this sofa for reupholstery. To our surprise this sofa was a mess! It was made with plywood and fitted together with staples. Large gaps remained where the back supports of the sofa met the side and only 4 screws were used to hold this sofa together!

Custom Built Walnut Bed with Upholstery Fabric in a Cream Colored Tweed

These are before pictures of another custom walnut and upholstered bed, prior to staining and upholstering. The glue, screws and hardwood reinforce the structure of the bed.  Other custom beds made by other furniture companies are fabricated using staples, pressboard and possibly a screw or two.
