Anthropologie, a mainstream purveyor of everything boho-chic and whimsical, is under fire for what the internet is calling #couchgate.

The apparel and housewares company listed its Pinterest-worthy Edlyn Two-Piece Chaise Sectional on its e-commerce website. The usual price tag for this sofa is around $8,000, but in a series of unfortunate events — which still haven’t been clearly explained by the brand — the item was listed for free.

Free couch?! Normally, free couches are worn, smell questionable and are shopped for on Craigslist. Of course loads of Anthro fans were down with a stylish new sectional for the unbeatable price of free ninety-nine (plus shipping and handling).

Unfortunately, however, this was not reality, but a “glitch,” as the company is calls it. Nobody would be getting a free couch after all, not even those who’d successfully completed the transaction.

Naturally, the Internet was totally cool with it, everybody understood that mistakes happen and went about their business in a calm and courteous manner….just kidding.

…but an apology isn’t a great substitute for a free couch — you can’t waste a Saturday morning reclining on an apology.

Ultimately, it’s too-bad-so-sad for the would-be free-couch owners. Or there’s always Craigslist…
