Own Jack White’s Old Sofa!

 

Sadly, not recovered in white-and-red motif, however…

By Fred Mills

That sickly, grandmother-pink object in the photo above is currently for sale on the Nashville area Craigslist for a mere $450 and listed as “Vintage Sofa owned by RockStar.” Technically that should be past tense – WAS owned. As you’ll discern from the description, it once was used by Jack White.

What’s fascinating is that the current owner opted not to leave the couch in the condition it was while in White’s possession, but instead had it recovered. Clearly not someone with any sense of what music memorabilia goes for on auction sites. Picture thousands of dollar signs flying past your eyes. Seriously, have you ever seen an uglier piece of furniture?

This is an amazing sofa and a great center piece to any room! Antique
and vintage with unmatched charm and quality. Solid woodwork, Goose down
cushions and new fabric!

Interesting history on this sofa. It belonged to Jack White from the
White Stripes. Their last 3 albums all won Grammy Awards for Best
Alternative Music Album. Jack was done with the couch and ready to
discard it, that’s when I acquired it directly from him. I recovered it
and it turned out perfect but I have moved and no longer have a place
for it.

You can call or text me anytime at 931-510-7630 for more info or to schedule a time to come inspect.
