    My poor house has been overrun by people. Far more than we have dining chairs for. As a result, I have decided to seat them in a collection of the most uncomfortable chairs in the world, hoping that they will leave early.

    Our tastes could not be more different! But I appreciate that there are people out there who like this stuff - I think it's interesting, I just don't know if I could live with it myself.

    it's like a DWR expo. I like, for the most part, though I imagine I'll just be sticking to some basic Eames wooden chairs for the table.

    Perhaps [​IMG] will understand, but this reminds me of the scene in The Two Towers where all the trees gather for a meeting.

    Good move on keeping your best glassware locked up as well.

    Well, that is not how it is set up normally. We were having more people than we usually would, so we emptied out other rooms, plus my wife's office. Normally we use Cappellini Tate Chairs. Glasses are Lobmeyr, which vox claims to love, though perhaps he has never seen them in real life.

    of course.

    If I'm ever in SF, make sure you stick me on the tractor chair.

    Probably the most comfortable at the table.

    I'm impressed that you reenacted the party from Sleeper.

    I've tried it myself, but it never has worked out quite right.

    For those of you who do not know: movie was filmed in poo's co-op.

    Not bad, but the contrasting emo black curtains are hideous. If you just had some normal white wooden blinds, the place would look good.
    The camera sucks. The curtains are bronze with a high sheen to them. They are really not that dark in person.

    After returning 2 rugs, a sofa, 2 lounge chairs...we finally settled on this setup. The recliners are anything but stylish, but they work well in this room and are just plain comfortable.

    Nice sofa.

    Thanks. She hated it, but it seems to be the first thing everyone mentions when they come over, so I never let her forget that I picked it out [​IMG]

    Best? No, I do not know. But for the love of god please never get anything that is featured in the Robb Report (like those pool tables with elephants and shit carved into the legs) [​IMG]
