I've complained before, once or twice, about how aggravating it is for a set designer to find the perfect sofa for onstage. Or, for that matter, a barely-acceptable-sofa. So I had to laugh when I got today's call from a set designer friend - so excited! He'd gotten hold of the perfect 1950's sofa in great condition and for free! He said only another designer would understand.
