For a whle now we have been struggling with this sofa. I know it looks TERRIBLE, but actually, it's not. It is very comfortable. And I feel back in it's day it was a very "good" couch i.e. expensive.
BUT! Yes, it is scruffy and awful. It was like that when we moved in and being quite honest our bold little cat has made it worse.
As a quick temporary fix I ordered a cover on amazon.
I don't hate it. But I certainly do not love. The color was described as "champagne" but ugh, to me looks more like mustard.
I really am a loss, but heck, it will do for now. Full stop.
