The internet is no stranger to out-there furniture - but the latest items to go viral are truly something else. Twitter has discovered some incredibly expensive upholstered items inspired by (believe it or not) the cheapest meat sandwiches around. The $7,100 hot dog couch, plus matching $4950 burger armchair, have taken the internet by storm - for all the wrong reasons. People can't believe the price tag of these supremely odd (and some would say ugly) items. For more shocking additions to the interior range, plus the best of the internet's reactions, get scrolling.
As a community, the internet loves a collective WTF moment.
There's something about the power of something weird that brings us all into agreement - which is nice in such a divisive world.
Even better when it's a collective "nope."And one item this week has everyone on Twitter collectively shaking their heads in disgust.
Here's the offending item.

While others are taking it as an inspirational message.Hey, if a company can sell something this ugly for this much money, it makes your own pipe dreams seem way more reasonable.
Find the furniture a little out of your price range?
For the more budget-conscious, you can settle for the $94 egg folding chair https://t.co/jaoJ6fi8kN https://t.co/ZGsS1NHCYL— Kim Bhasin (@Kim Bhasin)1568310708.0
