Found this incredible piece on the street in the neighborhood. Thankfully my friend April was there to help me load it. Lifting and carrying the top cushion is a two person job, let along the base. It is 6 feet long and 24 inches deep. I think it would make a great ottoman for the metal three-piece sofa I bought recently and put on my 3rd floor. Not sure when I will get around to doing something with it. The base looks like it was covered in ticking.
It looks like it was some type of sofa with a back attached to a base. My neighbor is going to saw off the metal pieces.
Here is what the back of the top cushion looks like.

Happy Monday Renee. What a neat old piece. Very unusal which equates to very cool! Can't wait to see the outcome with this one.
Geez, you're a freakin' human magnet for this awesome finds! And don't you just love ticking? It's way up on top of my likes list.
I posted on breast cancer awareness today and I'd like you to read it because I can pretty much guarantee it's a story you've not heard before. How do I know this? Because each time it's told, I hear, ".......I've never heard of that before!"
It's an important topic and October is an important time to focus on it.
Have a great day and thanks!!!
Oh my gosh, I want that so bad! I'm desperate to find something better than my dinky coffee table. Good find!
Can't wait to see what you do with that. What potential!
WOW...great find you have here...FREE is always wonderful!!!
You have a "SUPER DUPER" blog.
