We have a winner! The World Wide Ugly Couch Contest winner '08 has been announced, and she's a 'beauty.
Head over to check the (almost) equally delightful runners up.
At this point I should really admit that I OWN an Ugly Couch. Oh sure, the monstrosity is hidden under custom slipcovers, but a gold cabbage rose print lurks beneath. Hideous yes, but the couch's bones, classic shape and rock-solid construction were far too good to pass up.
If you too own a couch that has more character than style you can submit it for next year's contest, for which voting opens on July 4th '09.
