    I got a one like this at close of estate sale for 12.00. I just wanted the frame. I said I will take it for 12.00 or you will give it to Goodwill.

    I had it in the room that the tree fell in. I still have it in my garage. The arm was broke from the tree. But upon re-upholstery that can be fixed. Everyone is was like, “why isn’t that going into the dumpster??!!”

    So there it sits in my garage till someday—maybe redo it and use it.

    Mine has a bit of a lower back—same arms.

    Mine is from Sears as the tag says.

    Lovely couch and this reminds me that I’m on the hunt for a 50’s sectional. I saw one on the amazing “Mad Men” and of course haven’t seen a scene with it in again.

    However, it would be perfect in our living room – with lines like the couch about. Suggestions?

    Mary-Frances – shop your local Salvation Army store regularly. Sometimes you find those gems. I’ve bought occasional chairs for $10 and had them reupholstered (I actually have two Danish Moderns right now that I’m waiting to reupholster when I have extra cash). A friend of mine found a cool half-round sectional similar to the Mad Men one (if you’re talking about their living room, where they danced once) and she had hers reupholstered as well.
