Famous Looted R70000 Couch On Tour

A couch worth R70000 that was looted during the July unrest from a Springfield store has gained popularity and is now on tour.

“Our famous blue San Pablo Leather Corner Couch is currently on a tour in Gauteng and is being featured in the malls that our stores are located in,” said Leather Gallery’s co-owner Greg Parry.

After photos on social media went viral of a couple sitting on the couch on the curb, the search for the couch began and it was located in an informal settlement in Quarry Road West. The couch was restored and sent back to the showroom floor of the store.

“We decided to take the famous blue San Pablo Leather Corner Couch on tour as it has received such a great reaction here in Durban at our showroom based at our flagship warehouse and head offices,” said Parry.

“The blue San Pablo Leather Corner Couch was such a light in those dark times during the looting and went viral on social media and in the news, making people forget about the terrible things that were happening around them just for a moment and lightened their moods.

“We hope to continue this tour and will keep our customers and community updated on our social media as to where it will be going next so that everyone can get a selfie with the actual famous blue San Pablo Leather Corner Couch.”
