So we have this one month old sofa for sale. It's this one here, upholstered in the graphite fabric:


Size is 200 x 93 x 80cm (wxdxh).


I can also take some photos of it if you'd like to see the actual thing, which is located in Paraparaumu right now. It's got sprung cushions and a removable upholstery that can be dry cleaned or ScotchGarded. It's really comfortable, and we're slightly bummed out that it's got to go. The cushions also come completely out, rather than being fixed in. Because it's big, comfortable and dry cleanable, it'd be perfect for an office, or a rumpus room (visitor and kidproof). It will fit nowhere else in our weirdly shaped house.

Awesome story:

What happened was, we got this sofa at Nood in Wellington a few weeks ago before moving into our new place. They gave us an information sheet with the two, three and three plus chaise seats on there. We got the three seater in the 40% off sale, paid $1079 for it, and we went back to the store last week so we could get the two seater. But it turns out that the information sheet they gave us was old, and Nood don't actually sell the two seater any more. To make matters worse, the colour it's upholstered in is only available on this sofa.

So our options were (the offer was buy one get one free) either spend $1800 on another three seater (and find something else that cost $1800) or $3000 on the chaise (and find something else for $3000 to get 'free'). Or get something else completely contrasting and make them match. Which I didn't want to do (#firstworldproblems).

Naturally, we whinged like crazy at Nood, and to their credit, or to shut me up, they offered to get the two seater made specially for us. But because their factory is overseas, it's going to take 5 months to make it and ship it. Which clearly isn't going to work for us. :)

So we're going to buy a whole other suite, dreams crushed, etc, and we're having to sell this one. It fits comfortably in a HiAce (because I picked it up in one) but it's big and heavy (63kg). You'd have to get it from Paraparaumu or arrange someone to come and get it, but if it's the former option we'll be happy to help you out. Hell, we could arrange anything. We got it in here by ourselves (delivery messed up) so we can get it out again (this is me and my partner, who is tiny but apparently strong, like an ant).

Full disclosure: Nood are doing buy one get one free at the moment, and there's a 50% sale coming up soon. That makes the effective current new price $900 + delivery ($80 local to Wellington, $125 to Kapiti). A cat has enjoyed sitting on this for a few weeks, but because this is the internet, we think that could only increase its value.

There is no specific asking price - just send me a PM and make me an offer. Worst case scenario is that I could say no, or give you a counter offer, because I enjoy haggling.

Thank you for reading. -v switch off. :)

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

I am the Geekzone Robot and I am here to help. I am from the Internet. I do not interact. Do not expect other replies from me.

I still vote for the cushions tongue-out


Chiming in here, because Chris is relatively new to Geekzone, to say I've met him and he is a straight-up guy. You can trust his description and his honesty. I also know the story of this sofa and can vouch for it being genuine.

Thanks Elpie! :D

I should also say that we're not fixed on cash either. We're buying a different suite anyway. We've just moved into a new house, so we have major appliances but we're short on outdoor stuff, and I'd be keen to trade for that, or electronics. It'll go on TradeMe next Friday. We just want someone to get some use out of it, and we know it'll go for a song. :)
