    You can only pull them off if you are German. And then, it just makes me dislike Germans.

    Wide open. We're also considering shelves in the corner where the stairs turn 90º. It's essentially dead space, and we have shoe organizer (more appropriate for a closet, and not very efficient) on one of the wide stairs. It's just that the shoes are right at eye level when you walk in the door. Sucks. We could also steal some space from the garage to put in a bench and shelves for shoes, but that would mean actual construction. Again, sucks.

    I thought they were lumberjack hats.

    No, it's bitchin'. It even has an elevator with breasted doors, but no closet.

    I don't know what a breasted door is, so I googled:

    A display cabinet with gifted bottles of XO cognac that have never been drunk. A large air conditioning unit.

    I'm envisioning a cocktail party in someone's carpeted house with a bunch of people holding martini glasses barefoot. It's a rather nasty sight.

    If you were having a cocktail party, you wouldn't expect guests to take off shoes.

    I'm sure it's happened before in San Francisco.

    I've heard that in San Francisco, the native people wear their shoes indoors on a day-to-day basis, reflecting a laissez-faire approach to both morality and sanitation (as opposed to economics, with regard to which the local practices defy all attempts to decipher). Yet, during indoor tribal gatherings that one might consider analogous to a modern cocktail party--such as might include drum circles and/or hallucinogenic drug use within a foyer--the San Franciscans are known to go barefoot. Some theorize this custom indicates a worshipful desire for intimacy with the Earth Goddess, yet San Franciscan culture's unprecedented and boundless openness to physical intimacy of all imaginable sorts would suggest, should such be the case, the local people would simply never wear shoes all. Indeed, many do not.
