Consider your sofa. It is in the living room, taking daily abuse from sitting and spillages from tea, coffee, and other consumables which have stained it beyond what the scotchguard claims. No wonder it hides things and money from you. It’s almost like it’s a strange revenge plan. You can’t find your remote control? It’s been eaten by the sofa.
The same goes for everyone’s sofas. Deep inside their innards is who knows what lurks. You might even be thinking about buying a new couch. Why not pop along to vintagesofawarehouse.co.uk to inspire you with some new ideas for a Vintage Style Sofa? Why not take a look below at some of the strange and wonderful things that people have found down theirs?
A chocolate bar. You might not think it is remarkable, but this particular bar was discontinued despite its continued popularity. At the time, the missing chocolate bar was probably blamed on the dog! On discovery, the owner had sold it for 200 pounds on eBay! It was likely that there was also two hundred pounds in loose change down the back of that sofa!
Imagine finding two thousand five hundred dollars instead of £200? A dental nurse found the money after a random search. It was thought that the money was stolen.
Buy a couch and get a free cat. The couple purchased a couch from a charity store and decided to put it in their living room. The couple noticed that the sofa began to pulse and move. The man was a little concerned as he approached the couch with caution. Imagine the relief and surprise he felt when a cat stuck its head out and meowed for help. It was collected by the owner after he saw it in a TV story. In another instance, a snake escaped from a couch!
Most of us tend to hide things behind the couch in an effort to “out of sight, out of mind”. A Michelangelo print was not meant to be displayed behind a sofa like this, but it’s where an original sat in the 70’s and 80’s. It has been dated and it could be by the famous artist.
A well from medieval times. The well was not in the couch, but the couple that found it had grown tired of the dip in the floor under the sofa. The couple ripped the floorboards up to discover that they were sitting on top of a medieval well.
It’s better than an old sock, I suppose.
