I haven't yet decided if I should be helpful, or just make fun of this. I have reserved this spot.

Ok; they 'mass' produce this chair and hand the tools to complete the job to the average dimwit. Probably not terribly hard to accomplish this successfully.

Also, the legs are likely made from multiple layers of the same wood, laminated together in a form allowing them to consistently bend the legs and adding strength and resistance to bowing/twisting that would be otherwise more likely to occur from putting this to near your heating duct than attaching the legs. This is not the same as plywood since the grain will all be traveling in the same direction.

Sometimes I really wonder about the sort of people this forum attracts.

If I walk into anyone's house and they tell me to take off my shoes, I'm turning right around. Between that ridiculous germophobia and all the soy that you people drink, I'm surprised China hasn't invaded us already.

i was a no-shoes household as well, and for the most part that how we roll in the apartment.


i wear some LL Bean slippers with a light rubber bottom around. I love them.

I'm always amazed when ppl are wildly offended by being required to take their shoes off. It can be annoying, but that's about the start and end of it.

Blows my mind how that chair could be ~$700. "Designed" or not.

I grew up in a no shoe household. Any child guests were also required to remove their shoes but adults were not.

In my own home today I never wear shoes, but I also don't ask guests to take theirs off.

If my host is barefoot, I personally have no problem going barefoot as well. The only reason I wouldn't is if the host signaled he'd rather me not.
