I inherited this couch when my father passed away in the 1970's. I reupholstered it once, but unfortunately through the years the material that I used has deteriorated and become so scratchy that nobody can even sit on it anymore. The leather straps, on the Mediterranean style arms, have broken and so has some of the cushion zippers. Not to mention that various puppies through the years have destroyed the log style throw pillows. This is not a couch in my basement or attic, it is the only one I have. I cannot afford to buy a new couch and I'm hoping that I can win one.
