A couple of weeks ago AT:LA blogged Sure Fit's Ugly Couch Contest. Well, the votes are in, and Julie Lee of San Francisco is the winner! Can you guess which of these 20 semi-finalists has been crowned ugliest of the ugly?
Here it is! Yikes.
Julie's submitted the hideous 30-year old couch to the contest four years in a row. She says, Here was my chance to finally make my living space more presentable and tasteful. It's time for the couch to go. It's functional, but it really is just so ugly. It's 'loud' and screams of the 70s. It's orange, yellow, brown and…greenish? It has a floral pattern all over. And the fabric is some kind of chenille or velour or something strangely fuzzy.
Julie won a $5,000 home makeover with Kim Myles, designer/host of HGTV's Myles of Style, and Sure Fit. We're looking forward to seeing the results.
