Discarded Couches of Portland: SEASON 2

On my way home, I took this discarded chair as a sign that Discarded Couches of Portland was gearing up for a new season.

new discarded couch of portland

I thought couch-discarding season was over when the weather turned cold and rainy, so I was happily surprised Thursday morning when I saw this beaut sitting on a quiet residential street. It’s right across from a park, so you could presumably use the couch for a nice picnic, if you wanted to lug it across the street.
I put it up on Discarded Couches of Portland, so go check out all the discarded couches I saw this year.

Just for kicks, here are two couches currently languishing in a warehouse in SE Portland. Will they ever find a good home? They don’t get to be included on Discarded Couches (because technically they haven’t been discarded so much as forgotten) but you can think of them as a bonus.
