Do you ever feel like you have a hard time finding a sofa big enough for your home? Well maybe you should have a look at Sykkylven’s record-setting longest sofa on Earth. On June 14, 2009, 300 volunteers from ten different furniture companies of the Norwegian town Sykkylven gathered to assemble their sofa across the Sykkylven Bridge. The sofa measured 2,920 ft. and 9 in, ten times longer than the previous record of 212 ft. set in Greece.
Guinness World Records adjudicator Kaoru Ishikawa was on sight to officiate the record. The event was a part of the 100 year jubilee of the Norwegian furniture industry.
