Paspartout and I recently purchased two new sofas – two and three-seaters, black leather, very comfortable – and finally ditched the god-awful feather-spewing abominations we’ve had to put up with all these years. Now, whilst that in itself isn’t exactly post-worthy (although the feather thing is certainly something worth celebrating, in my opinion), I would however, like to share with you, dear readers (both of you), the care instructions that came with them. Sit back, relax, be careful not to spill your tea on your sofa, and hopefully the following (reproduced verbatim) will amuse:
