True,but this does make me think of an old Confucius proverb; He who farts in Church sits in his own pew.

The chairs will go with our Prouvé walnut dining table (black base). The Prouvé Standard chair is obviously in play - but feels a little bit too much like school seating. Also considering various Carl Hansen and Finn Juhl designs. The shortlist as it stands is made up of theseView attachment 1566030
Am I missing any great options? We already have some of the series seven counter chairs and don’t want to match with those

Somewhere between the standard chair and those Danish designs is this risom side chair:

(If Kierkegaard knew this word, and had access to my poasts, it would have freed him from his troubles).
You strike me as one of those individuals who tries to weave Nietzsche into every conversation @ cocktail parties in some feeble attempt to dissuade others from snapping their fingers & ordering you to fetch them another Scotch.

Yes, I do attempt to weave Nietzsche into every conversation at cocktail parties, but this is a merely ploy to increase my tips.

You strike me as the sort of fellow who discusses what color ascot he wore to Alberto Ascari's funereal (get it? you mixed up morning dress with mourning dress cos you're an iGENT, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH).

See, I'm real fun at parties.

anybody try a bench at the dinner table? i think we will end up doing this, either freestanding on one side or a built-in that wraps into two sides (although i am allergic to the idea of building-in lately)
We're doing a built-in dining room bench in our renovation. It's flanked on both sides by floor-to-ceiling towers with side-mounted sconces that frame a window set. I wasn't super thrilled with the idea initially, but it lends a ton of storage and, living in a narrower home, provides maximum flexibility for the space.

FWIW our carpenter is adding a jog to the bench so that it's easier to enter and exit/you don't feel glued between the table and windows. I'll let you know how it turns out in a few months.

I wrote my college thesis on Nietzsche.

If you saw God get up from a subway seat, would you sit in it? (for the sake of argument let's assume god does not take the form of a beautiful woman)
Your premise does not follow logically in your hypo. In this scenario, God is a deranged bum coming at you with a shank. Do you let God kill you, or do you kill God? He smells like rotten eggs.

This is the essential Nietzhchean dilemma in a nutshell.

For even though in Nietzsche God' death is a fait accompli, there is the nagging question of whether or not this is a good thing. We need to go back and see WHY WE KILLED GOD. Would we do it again if we had the chance?

This is a weird fit in the thread. I'm in favor of killing god. Now we are free to show each other our credenzas without shame!
