Furniture styles change and there are regional variations and of course beauty
is in the eye of the beholder…. But I thought it would be fun to make
a thread of furniture designs we find unattractive, hopefully in a good-natured
way.

I ran across an ad for this chair for sale today and I thought it was real
heinous, but you know somebody will love it somewhere.

Ooh! Nasty. That would only look good after half a bottle of Jack Daniels.

Wow, takes me back to my childhood. My Grandma had a set like that only from real leather. The couch was a ‘fold down’ or futon and everytime we visited I had to sleep on it.

think, Hot, Sweaty, stick to the skin…... But it did smell like real leather and remember that smell to this day.

This piece is from the bedroom set my parents bought in the 60s. Note the typical 60s “futuristic” look, with the sharp-edged trim, and the short, round legs. I call it the “Jetsons look”.

That 60’s piece is probably back “in” now. I could see the wife saying “awe, thats cool, you should make one”

This piece gets a special mention, because it is still in production.
It exudes cheapness, yet still has an appeal to a certain generation.
No amount of Jack Daniels could improve this in my opinion.

The horror!

Loren, I haven’t seen one of these since I was a kid. I think I’ll save your picture of it. Down here in Texas, I bet those would sell. I may have trouble finding turquoise leather.

Actually that chair looks like something a friend of mine from college in Tucson owned.
