Lakers Furniture Is Elegant and Tasteful

If you're anything like me, your passion for basketball, however ardent, is nothing compared to your love of interior design. If only there were a way to combine the two pursuits! How often have you said to yourself, "Self, that ottoman/recliner set I recently bought looks awfully sharp, but I would gladly trade the deep brown leather it came in for the garish hues of my favorite NBA franchise." It's a difficult paradox we've all confronted at one point or another. Trust me, I've been there.

Luckily, human ingenuity is here to save the day! For reasons that I don't care to explain at the moment, tonight I Googled the phrase "Lakers furniture" and was met with a treasure trove of gorgeous purple-and-gold furnishings. Like that chair to the right! That would beautifully tie together any living room, would it not?

Quite obviously - no, it would not. Gorgeous was perhaps not the best choice of words. Monstrously ugly?  Yes, that's the description I'm looking for.

The repellent pinnacle of this design genre, however, can be found in this eBay listing, which I urge you to visit immediately in lieu of whatever boring crap you think is more important. It's not at all clear to me what this guy's actually trying to sell. (He calls it a "remote control couch holder," although my guess is he's misplaced some modifiers there.) What is clear to me is that he's captured on film the most plug-ugly couch outside of the former Eastern Bloc.

For what it's worth, I don't think the couch itself is available for purchase, as clearly no one would pay 30 bucks for it.
