Well, could you?

(An extensively reworked post from May 2013.)

Or stack your books & knickknacks here?

It's just possible that some designers have gone to extremes
in trying to come up with a new look for furniture.

This must be the original couch potato,
but I don't think I could relax on it:

This looks like a good idea:

These chairs look like fun:

But these coffee tables & the lamp would take some getting used to:

I guess an animal lover COULD be comfortable here:

Or here:

Or here:

Or even here:

How about some more people (or parts of them) in your house?:

I'd rather be alone:

All I could think of when I saw this was
"You drive me up the wall!!"

She must have a pet beaver:

Imagine being hung over & trying to find some clothes in the morning:

This is too much for me--I'm going back to bed!:

I actually found four furniture jokes online:

Co-workers sympathized with a woman as she complained that her back was really sore from moving furniture over the weekend while her husband was golfing.
"Why didn't you wait until your husband got home?" someone asked.
"I could have," the woman told her, "But the couch is easier to move if he's not on it!"

A couple was in a furniture store lamenting over the price of a bedroom set.  The salesman told them, "Here's what you do.  You finance it, then you don't make any payments for a year."
"Who told you about us?" the woman snapped back.

A furniture sales rep was in Paris & noticed a beautiful woman smiling at him. They discovered that they had no language in common in which they could communicate.  The woman drew a picture of a wine glass, he nodded & they went to a restaurant & ordered a bottle of wine.  Then, on a napkin, she sketched two plates of food.  After a wonderful meal the lovely lady, with a smile, handed the sales rep a drawing of a bed.  And, as he tells the story, "To this day, I have no idea how she knew I was in the furniture business!"

"I used to sell furniture for a living. The trouble was, it was my own."
- Les Dawson

And even some furniture cartoons:

              I'm not really sure why I ran this post:

I'm getting that dreaded furniture disease.  That's when your chest starts falling into your drawers.

Redecorate any way you want.  After all, a man's home is his castle--in a manor of speaking----fishducky



  1. I could settle down on the sheep furniture. The humans? Nope.

  2. I couldn't deal with any of the furniture at all--LOL!
    Loved the furniture jokes! :)

  3. Some of that looked like it was designed by Dr. Seuss. At least it's all good for a laugh.

  4. You could get several of the sheep chairs for the bedroom, and count them at night. The hung-over drawers appeal to me, but I think they should be bolted to the wall in case of an earthquake.

    1. I don't think the sheep chairs could jump over a fence!!

  5. I was intrigued by the bookcase but the table hiking its leg cracked me up.

  6. That couch potato makes me hungry.

    Keep smiling, fishducky!

  7. A few of those guys on the knickknack shelf have apparently mastered the "tuck" technique. Or they're life-size Ken dolls.

    1. I wasn't sure at first that you had written "tuck". I guess it would be the same if you hadn't!!

  8. There's not a single piece of furniture that I like in the first half of this post, but I love the jokes and cartoons.

    1. I wasn't trying to sell furniture, just to deliver some smiles!!

  9. Those pictures were horrible! Particularly the sheep chair. But the rest was great and I love the IKEA house. That's so good.


Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
