My friend Kim clued me in on this one, so I just had to see it for myself. She said that a retro style couch won the Live with Regis and Kelly Show's Ugly Couch Contest. The winning sofa was submitted by Sylvia Stern, which bagged her $5K in cash...enough, I suppose, to buy a new couch.
My friend must be sorely mistaken, though, because I wouldn't exactly call the pattern on this couch retro. I was expecting something more along the lines of a Pucci pattern. This just looks like a giant python to me. But, hey, that's why *I'm* the one writing a retro blog!
