On Saturday, Mella LaFrance took the tapered wooden legs off of her canary-yellow sofa, hauled it down five flights of stairs, and left it on the curb near her East Village apartment. LaFrance figured someone might take it home — just like she had when she came across it on a curb last fall. After putting it on the sidewalk, she expected never to see it again. So it was a shock when she saw the @StoopingNYC Instagram account shared a photo of her couch with “SEX AND THE SETTEE” spray-painted across it in black. “At first, I thought it was funny,” said LaFrance. “But then the ecofeminist in me really loved that couch and wishes it did go to a good home.” The post quickly racked up more than 7,000 likes and a wall of furious comments. One person called the graffiti “privileged,” another dubbed it “uncreative,” and someone else described the artist behind it, Adrian Wilson, as an “edgelord.” The overall consensus was that Wilson had doomed the couch to the dump.
