I suspect I will never own a white sofa. Despite my desire to someday have one in my house, my three black cats have conspired to prevent it from happening. I hate that feeling of wanting something and knowing I can never have it (well, at least as long as these three felines - whom I love very much - still walk the earth...). It's one thing not to be able to afford something, but to be denied a sparkling, white seating area just because one's pets choose to shed fur and emit various unpleasant fluids all the time... well, that's not fair.
I guess I will just have to continue living vicariously through images such as the examples shown here. So, is there something you want for your house but know you will never have the opportunity to own? Come on, let's commiserate together!
