Music fans are being offered the opportunity to share a seat with the likes of Bob Marley, Bono from U2 and Grace Jones.
Metherells Auctioneers, of Halesworth, are selling five sofas once owned by Island Records and used in their office cinema between 1990 and 1997.
Auctioneer David Metherell said that the sofas had been part of a “bohemian set-up”.
The certificate of authenticity states: “During their time of service they were sat on by musicians Grace Jones, Bono and The Edge of U2, Bob and Rita Marley and Brian Eno.”
They were also slept on by Jazzie B of Soul II Soul.
The lot goes on auction tomorrow at 10.30am and are estimated to fetch between £70 and £100.
