While apartment-hunting one fine summer day, you happen upon an apartment that's perfect in every way (including location, ridiculously low price, etc.) EXCEPT that there is this god-awful sofa smack in the middle of the living room. Due to some strange incident involving the previous owners, a blowtorch, and an economy-size vat of superglue (the real estate agent refuses to elaborate), the sofa is completely immovable.

Perhaps "god-awful" is an understatement for this couch: it's rust-colored and spongy with lurid orange flowers and brown leaves embellishing its spongy surface. This indecorous and frankly nasty piece of furnishing seems to have been spawned by some sadistic and low-budget manufacturer in the early 1970's.

And it's not like you can just avoid the living room: it's right off of the entrance of the apartment, and is a really nearly perfect room - barring of course the hideous sofa.

What would you do? (And, NO, you cannot just throw a sheet over the sofa and be done with it.)
