The material itself made your skin itch every time you sat down or lay down on it.
When my grandmother gave up housekeeping in her old house, she gave me all of her furniture. She told me that she needed to downsize now that all the kids were out of the house and grandpa was gone. She wanted to get one of those small apartments where all of her other friends were now living, now that they were in their 70s. I couldn’t wait to take over her old furniture. I kept picturing the old wooden bed that they had upstairs that she and grandpa used for all those years they were together. I saw the furniture in the room that I used to stay in whenever I went to visit grandma and grandpa. It was the most beautiful canopy bed and matching desk that I had ever seen. I wasn’t really thinking about the sofa and chair that was in her main living room. That sofa and chair were the ugliest green material that I had ever seen. Every time you sit down dust comes out of the pillows. The material itself made your skin itch every time you sat down or lay down on it. When I walked into the house, grandma was so pleased to show me everything that I was now the owner of. When I saw the green sofa and chair I almost choked. The only thing I could think to do with that old sofa and chair, was to take it to the reupholsterers. Only the help of a reupholster was going to make that sofa and chair able to be used.
