Agreed, it is not.

Don't make me post examples, Pio. It's not fair to make society pay the price for your own shortcomings.

You are overthinking this.

Here instead is some awesomeness.

I Googled real quick and didn't see previous mention on SF, so bear with me if you've seen this before. There is an apartment building designed by Corbusier back in the 50's, called Unité d'Habitation, and located in Marseille, France. One of the apartments, known as "Apartment 50," is privately owned and remains virtually the same as how Corbusier had it built. From time to time, the owner invites various designers to decorate the apartment as they see fit. Like I said, awesomeness.

A TV isn't always bad, but I do think its prominence signals what is wrong, it isn't necessarily wrong in itself. I don't mind dragging out my laptop if I need to show somebody something.

as one of the one-living roomed 98%, i find a tv in the public space a lot less appalling than a tv in the private space (bedroom). but honestly, and i'm saying this with a lot of love, ya'll are a bunch of freaks.

I really don't like those rooms. They look like playsets (which I suppose they are). I hate to go SH on you, but I think it is because they don't look like places where people live.

+1 [shuddering at the idea of going SH]. it looks propped rather than lived in.
what kind of message does it send when your "public" space includes only two hard-backed chairs? "nice to see you! don't loiter!"

I agree, like waiting rooms in cosmetic surgery offices. Not homey and comfortable. That is just me though.

The placement of the chairs was what got me. The only think that looked real was the bed, and that was because of the fake (staged) impression that someone had momentarily rested on it.
