We spend so much time on our couch. It really deserved a needlessly in-depth study like this . . .
A new survey of 2,000 Americans found the average sofa is six years old . . . and has $1.55 in change hiding in the cushions.
It’s also been napped on 36 times (seems low) . . . CRIED on 17 times . . . gone through 32 extended hangouts with friends and family . . . and been through 21 sick days.
Here are four more stats from the survey . . .
- 70% of Americans said they like their current couch and think it’s comfortable.
- On average, people said you should graduate to more “grown-up” furniture by the time you’re 28 years old.
- The top furniture purchases that make us feel grown up are a dining room table and chairs, a nice couch, and a good mattress.
- And the top pieces of furniture we’d like to replace are our mattress, our couch, our bed frame, our dining room table, and our TV stand.
