The abandoned sofas of Los Angeles

May I present to you the abandoned street couches of Los Angeles as compiled by Keith Plocek. Apparently ‘these artifacts say more about us than just laziness. They tell stories of butts and passion and bad television, and maybe even birth and death’.

There’s quite a few different kinds of sofas here – ‘The whole living room on the curb’ sofas, the ‘see-through sofa’, the lone cushion ‘sofa’, and unfortunately, the ‘toilet’ sofa, which is just as bad as you can imagine.
