Ugly Never Wears Out

This really retro Home Interiors plastic wall décor reminds me of a couch I rescued in 1979.

The green-rust-brown-beige busy floral fabric was an industrial strength petroleum-based woven vinylly substance that appeared to be indestructible.

The horrible thing had begun its life with a family in a Texas living room, was replaced by something attractive and moved to their basement, migrated to the porch and came to rest in my apartment on the way to the dump.
I moved it to Kansas City where it lived for seven more years until I gave it away and it headed east to St. Louis. It was still in great shape.
Ugly never wears out.
