PVC sofas and emotional armour

Padded leather/’leather’ (re: smelly PVC) sofas are a big favourite among Malaysian home owners, as seen in the above three living rooms sourced on iProperty.com.

To achieve this sort of aesthetic, one can easily resort to any furniture store often situated by highways (Old Klang Road is best for quantity). Quite typically they come in sets of three — an armchair, a 2-seater and a 3-seater — a perfect way to satisfy the need for a “very matching and coordinated” look. Most of my aunts would agree.

For added comfort and style, little square pillows should be added as an accent. These come in handy when one needs support for lazy neck-bones during long midnight soap operas on TV3. They also make good emotional armour during awkward conversations with relatives/friends as the little square accents can be hugged in front, promoting a sense of security, much like a little shield. In this aspect, little pillows can also cover embarrassing or sensitive parts of the body when one is not feeling so extroverted.

PS: I have boxed off the phone numbers to the agents, in case you were wondering what the green bars are for.

  1. we used to have such pvc creatures in our living room back in penang. ours consisted of two small armchairs, put at the end of an L shaped 5 seater couch, making it an elegant 7 seater. they were also lime green and covered in pen scribblings and pen-made holes courtesy of us kids. but as we got older, my mum had them reupholstered with to marblish sky blue pvc second skin.

  2. Your parents do have very cheerful taste my dear!
