I Have The World’s Ugliest Sofa – Please Give Me a Klaussner

So my wife has been complaining about the old sofa in the living room. She wants to replace it with something new (expensive) and elegant (more expensive). I did some searching on the Web for sofas and ended up at World’s Ugliest Sofa Competition at SofasandSectionals.com.

The competition is pretty straight forward. You have to send in a photo of your ugly sofa with a few words describing how it got so ugly. The winner will get one of 15 brand new Klaussner sofas.

My Ugly Sofa – Please Take It Away and Give Me a Klaussner

Ugly Sofa

First of all, my sofa has a really ugly color. It’s an eye soar and doesn’t match the hardwood or the color of the wall. It just doesn’t belong in the house! The sofa is around 15 years old. Now you might be thinking it looks in pretty good shape for 15 years but that’s because we never sat on it because it’s so ugly!

SofasandSectionals.com needs to save me and my family from having to look at that ugly sofa by taking it away and replacing it with a brand new Klaussner sofa. We will be forever grateful. I’ll be sure to post some photos of the new Klaussner in our living room so everyone can see how great it looks.

I highly doubt anyone has a sofa more ugly than my sofa so I think my chances of winning are pretty good. If you think your sofa is more ugly, which I doubt, then go enter the contest and win one of those 15 Klaussner sofas.

    It doesn’t look that ugly. I bet the winner is going to have a sofa that’s got stains, tears, and things utterly disgusting. You should ugly your sofa up a bit more, John πŸ˜‰

    1. John Chow says:

      They’re giving 15 new sofas away. I’m sure my sofa is ugly enough to win one of them. πŸ™‚

      1. John Rampton says:

        I wish it was voted on by users which it doesn’t look like it is. Then you’d for sure win!

        1. Hey John, D3so,

          I think that both of you are a bit leaning too much to your view. D3so doesn’t see the mmild stain or light spot on John’s sofa, while I see it on the right side of the bottom seat cushion. Surely the sofa could look much worse than it does, so D3so is partially correct.

          John is overdoing it heavily when he says his sofa is the ugliest in the world.
          The color is not that bad and it does’t look like the cheapest sofa either. At 15 years old it’s in a good shape.

          My only question would be this: If you never sat on it why do you still have it after 15 years?

        2. John Chow says:

          If it was a vote system, I would win all 15 sofas! πŸ˜›

      2. Well, I guess it might make it into the top 15 so you can win a sofa, but it won’t be number 1.

        1. ikki says:

          sure, like i sai before, i ve seen uglier sofas

    2. Bob says:

      Sure. This sofa is not ugly. Well, for some rich people maybe it is. LOL. John if you could give me this ugly sofa of yours, I would be very happy. We don’t have sofa either.

  2. Jason says:

    Hey John,

    You sofa burns my brains when I look at it and I hope you win, it looks like you deserve it. It looks comfortable, even though it is ugly as sin, that might hold you back in the competition.

    Good Luck!


    1. dotCOMreport says:

      It does look comfortable and I hope it doesn’t hold you back. Maybe the fact that you are giving extra exposure might count in your favor?

    2. Fairooz says:

      It looks comfortable! i dont find it ugly to win! πŸ˜€

  3. John Rampton says:

    I swear I have the same sofa in green and it’s like 6 months old… funny how couch styles don’t change much… What I’m surprised at is that you have kept it for that long… lol

  4. Keep trying who knows you will be one of the
    winner for a brand new sofa !!

  5. Kirk Taylor says:

    Why wouldn’t you manipulate the sofa in Photoshop for added insurance?

    1. John Chow says:

      I think that was against the rules.

    2. Yea, a photoshop sofa would do the trick!

    3. Abhik says:

      What happen when they find that out?

    4. Fairooz says:

      That wont be fair i think!

  6. Gyanguru says:

    Keep trying, if any voting is required, I will vote yours.

    1. Fairooz says:

      Even me too would do! πŸ™‚

  7. Michael Kwan says:

    Aside from the color, it’s not that bad. At least it’s in halfway decent shape. πŸ˜‰

    1. Hey Michael,

      This is the color of royalty. It may not be fashionable right now but color is a personal matter and some people may still like it. To me it’s not that bad although I wouldn’t pick it but can imagine as lot of worse color than that.

      Besides, they must have liked the color when they bought it.

      The quality of the sofa is above average although not expensive enough to match John’s income now. 15 years ago it must have been more than good enough.

  8. GTA 5 says:

    Haha it is ugly but not that much ^^ At least it looks very comfortable πŸ˜‰

  9. Bash Bosh says:

    Well its not that much ugly… but anyway good luck with a contest! And yes, it looks comfortable too πŸ™‚

  10. If the color is so ugly, why did you buy it in the first place?

    1. John Chow says:

      I didn’t buy it. It was a gift.

  11. jhoni says:

    wooowww…….that is not ugly sofa….i have more worse then yours hehehehehe!!!!

  12. ikki says:

    haha is not tha ugly

  13. It probably won’t win the contest, it’s not ugly enough.

    1. ikki says:

      im agree with you

  14. Thats a nice big soft and cushy soft you have John…..its not as ugly as I thought it would be …

  15. Roger says:

    That sofa doesn’t look good with the hardwood floors. That is at least one good thing about our sofa, it matches the floor! I’m with you John, it’s not the greatest sofa, but on the other hand, at least you have one.

    1. Roger says:

      I meant not the greatest color.

  16. Toby says:

    So you’re making $40,000 a month…according to the book.
    Buy a new sofa!
    Problem solved.

    1. John Chow says:

      It’s not how much you make, it’s how much you keep! Why pay when you can get it for free? πŸ™‚

      1. But the one you are getting for free, is not always the best in the world for you.

        Buying one of your choice will make you more happier, Isn’t ?

        1. Abhik says:

          It will also make his wife happier that him πŸ™‚

          1. Sorry i missed your wife. After all she’s the one wants it really badly

    2. Maria says:

      hi John,

      I have to agree with Toby, I just finished looking at the your free e book and this is the first blog I have ever read in my whole life! yes I guess I ve been living under a rock but I don t really get it… and I do agree with Toby if you re making 40 000$ a month, you can just get a sofa and not talk about this cause if this is blogging its kind of useless… I guess I try to find some of your other blogs and read a bit about some other things discussed cause so far I don t really get.

      1. John Chow says:

        This blog is call the MISCELLANEOUS Ramblings of a Dot Com Mogul. That means I can blog about anything I want. Get it now? πŸ™‚

        1. Hey John,

          Even if your blog wasn’t called what it is, you and anyone else can write on their own blog about whatever subject they want.

          Ungrateful readers who would milk you out of everything if they could have the audacity to complain? That’s what I don’t get.

  17. nintendo 3ds says:

    hahaha world ugliest sofa! now that’s a very creative contest and hey 1 thing that does add to your sofa’s ugliness is the color. #justsaying

  18. John, Your sofa is still in good shape even after 15 years.

    I dont think you can win the competition but there’s no harm in trying.

    Good luck bro

  19. It really doesn’t look that bad to me either, but sometimes pictures don’t show the colors as vividly.

    I love the hardwood floors, white trim, and paint scheme though. That is what my house is like. I love bright white trim against hardwood floors, and a soft color on the wall.

  20. Typhoon says:

    To increase your chances of wining just start taking dinner (because, dinner is always delicious than lunch most of the time) on that sofa and tickle your wife suddenly so that she fells something over it (you know what I mean and I hope she’s not reading this or she will know the plan) πŸ˜€

    To make it more ugly, put a xbox or playstation in front of that sofa and call yours or your daughter’s friends for a gaming challenge and then see what happens after a whole day of gaming!

    I hope you can resend them a new photo then if it is allowed in their terms.

  21. Carstarphen says:

    You are a creative thinker John,

    You did not just go out and spend money because you partner started complaining about the sofa, like many people would do. I guess that is part of the reason you are a successful businessman.


  22. Hi John,

    Better give your Sofa to me, if you call it ugliest.Just kidding:-)

  23. fas says:

    Anything free is good. right!

  24. Abhik says:

    It doesn’t look that ugly.
    If I enter in that contest, I am sure you’ll lose it to me πŸ™‚

    1. John Chow says:

      Go for it. A free sofa is a free sofa!

  25. ikki says:

    i think i ve seen worst haha

    1. Hey Ikki,

      You just keep repeating yourself. All your 3 comments are pretty much the same regarding this topic. And they say pretty much nothing. Why don’t you start thinking instead of spamming like a robot?

      1. John Chow says:

        If he keeps this up, I’ll be removing him from the Top Commentators List.

        1. If he at least paid any attention to what anybody is saying here. It would then be impossible for him to leave the kind of useless comments he does.

          At least out of respect to you he should make an effort.

  26. Techmaker says:

    John, don’t throw that good sofa away from your house. Try to change the color of your walls to match with your sofa. Then you will love to sit on it lol… he..he..he… πŸ˜›

  27. PPC Ian says:

    I like your nice hardwood floors. Agreed that the sofa is an ugly color. πŸ™‚

  28. Dan Lew says:

    I think you should put some holes and rips in and stain it up a bit to make it more ugly, that way you will have a better chance at winning!

  29. Kerwin says:

    Your sofa is fine. You should see mine. I’m certain I can beat you in the contest hands down.

    1. John Chow says:

      Then go enter. They’re giving away 15 sofas!

  30. JenJen says:

    That is not an attractive sofa, but by no means is it a winner of a loser. Go check out some other ugly couch contests and see what you think. Yours is gorgeous in comparison to some of these monstrosities. Here’s a link with some choice contestants: http://www.uglycouchcontest.com/2010.html

  31. Ginger says:

    Your sofa is hard on the eyes John. I looked at those Klaussner sofas because mine is awful. We paid an arm and a leg for the den furniture and it isn’t worth 1/4 what we paid. Looks great and sits like it is 30 years old. I thought hey maybe I could win a Klaussner too. But you know, they are so ugly I am passing on them.

    I am thinking I’ll invest in a few folding metal chairs and call it a day. I tried sitting on at least 100 sofas before we purchased the last set and after all the effort, doesn’t matter how pretty or ugly a sofa is. If they don’t sit well, they are trash.


  32. Fairooz says:

    I don’t find your sofa that ugly!

    Maybe You could sell it for an auction. There could be so many bidders because it’s John Chow’s sofa πŸ˜€

  33. Yeah dude, not ugly enough, you need some stains on that thing and perhaps even a poop stain or two to even give it a chance.

  34. Neon SRT4 says:

    This is not the ugliest sofa, i ever seen. Because, in youtube, i see a lot of uselss sofa. Your sofa is pretty good compare to them.

  35. haha. this is hilarious. But you know what, sofas are very important. Something I have noticed is that whenever you have guests, they will look at your house but they will have an opinion on you based on your sofas. So, if your sofas look like crap, they won’t be shy to tell you that you need an upgrade. My sofas are really ugly haha! I need a change.

  36. O.K, maybe it’s just me but I don’t think the red couch is that ugly……………common guys you remember your bachelor pad days!

    1. yes it’s not that ugly at all I rather find. I still think it needs a change. Black leather is the way to go. πŸ™‚

  37. Your Sofa is not an ugliest software i ever seen. I have seen lot of sofa. Your ‘s is still better than them.

  38. Design Flyer says:

    well Getting sofa for free is good but if you are not winning it then at least purchase a new one.
