The Hugo, a modular and elegant lounger
GOODS & SERVICES • FOUND Object
Six days after this piece arrived — 30 weeks after we ordered it — our 10-year-old daughter’s friend exploded a stress ball filled with a neon gelatin on the chaise. Desperate, they tried to blot it up with bathroom tissue, which shredded on impact. The babysitter, a high school senior, wiped at the purple with a Tide stain stick, further laminating the substance into the fabric.
Months later, after hours of blotting and scrubbing, the stain is gone, reduced to a faint sear only on our retinas. The couch remains, defiant, having taken our best punch. It is an ethereal lounger with a backbone, modular and elegant. We’re adding another piece. –Josh Albertson
