I have a weak spot for overly-stylized Victorian furniture. So, when I walked into a vintage/antique shop and saw this sofa with its gaudy turquoise-and-gold brocade pattern, gold frame, and claw feet, I knew I had to buy it. It's obviously not from the 19th century, but it's a fairly nice replica. It needs some steam cleaning but is otherwise in great condition. I'm pretty thrilled to be replacing our current hand-me-down plaid couch.
Even Bam Bam is impressed.
