​Woman Who Thought She'd Got A Bargain Sofa In Hysterics When It Arrives

​Woman Who Thought She'd Got A Bargain Sofa In Hysterics When It Arrives

She ordered a $249.99 (£187.69) L-shaped sofa for her new home, only to realise it was a kids' item

A woman who thought she'd managed to bag a bargain was in hysterics when her new sofa arrived - instantly realising she'd accidentally ordered a piece of furniture for children.

Pinky Jones, 36, ordered a $249.99 (£187.69) L-shaped sofa and ottoman set for her new home, expecting the arrangement would be big enough for her family - which includes her fiancé, Joseph, 38, and five children.

When the sofa arrived, however, she realised it was barely big enough for her, let alone her brood.

Jones, from Florida, said: "My fiancé was in when it arrived and he said it seemed small. I thought maybe it needed to be assembled to make shipping easier but when we opened it, it was just a tiny sofa.

"I had to laugh, it's literally a baby sofa.

"I would never have dreamed I was buying it for a child.

"I thought it was going to be an actual sofa, big enough for my living room.

"It didn't say anywhere that it was for a child and it was listed in the living room section on the website.

"It said it seats five so I thought at least the five kids would be able to squeeze on it and me and my fiancé could sit on the beanbags for now."

She bought the 22-inch-tall sofa from Wayfair, which sold it with a patterned ottoman and five tiny cushions.

The property manager continued: "I was looking forward to it arriving because we don't have any furniture and I waited ten weeks for delivery.

"It's annoying because now I have no furniture in my living room but I've had a sad childhood and I've been homeless.

"I've been able to buy my own house now so I've been given too many lemons to complain, I just found it hilarious."

Before returning the item, Jones took a photo of herself posing on the miniature sofa, posting it on Facebook.

The image has now gone viral, having racked up more than 59,000 shares.

Jones added: "I didn't expect it to go so big.

"I posted it on Facebook just for my friends and when I came back to my phone it had just blown up.

"I couldn't believe it."

As the family are still waiting for their refund, they are now fundraising via GoFundMe for a new sofa. So far, they've managed to raise $20 of their $500 target.

LADbible has contacted Wayfair for comment.
