Imagine a sofa so abysmal that, for a moment, the people of “the worlds” cast aside their differing political rulings to rally together and detest on it.
This powerfully shitty piece of furniture exists in the form of a West Elm sofa identified “Peggy, ” and after one courageous and fed-up spirit, Anna Hezel, decided to publicly threw the sofa on smash, drastic measures were taken.
In one small step for West Elm, and one giant leap for furniture aficionados everywhere, customers who regrettably bought the Peggy sofa are being offered a full refund.
In Hezel’s original article on The Awl , beautifully entitled, “Why Does This One Lounge From West Elm Suck SoMuch? ” she intensely detailed the personal disappointment she faced following her buy of the wretched and disintegrating seat.
She delved deep into the supportive yet strange online “community of Peggy truthers” who shared her hate of this inadequate living room focal point and invigorated them to speak out.
Suddenly, #PeggyGate was born and beings began announcing their West Elm furniture into question.
In the end, Hezel successfully obliged her event and in a follow up section posted on Wednesday, she explained that three days after her original section “re coming out” she “noticed that all traces of the Peggy( including the Peggy chair and the Peggy sectional) had disappeared from West Elms website.”
In a statement to Hezel, a West Elm PR congressman explained that her critical feedback was hugely realized. The account read 😛 TAGEND
” … I want to assure you that this information is taken very seriously. Every inquiry received is reviewed and submitted to our manager unit and purchasers in the specific area. Its important to know that not all situations are like yours and we handle each of them event by event. We take necessary measures, internally, as we see fit. In this case Ms. Hezel, we regarded it was best to remove the Peggy sofa from our website.”
In addition to lift the furniture from the website, the company is now offering Peggy owneds “a full refund or replacement of orderings placed in the U.S. and Canada after July 2014. ” Mashable contacted out to West Elm for additional comment.
Justice has been served in the furniture world.
