    The giant angle-poise lamp is cool but I don't like much else. Why do people arrange their living room furniture around the walls like a waiting room?

    I do not know why in cases where there is plenty of room, but when there is not, it is about the only sensible option-to do otherwise in a smaller living room makes it look cluttered and chaotic IMO. If I had room(like at my former place) I would break it up into 'sections'.

    Agree, but in this particular house there's enough seating for about 20 people in the living room and it's all arranged around the walls. You could at least place those pairs of chairs in a more random way. It's a big room but if there isn't enough space then remove some of the furniture and arrange it differently like you say.

    It looks like it is arranged for some 'encounter meeting' or something where there are 25 people and they need to all be arranged around the perimeter so they can all 'interface' with eachother or some such shit. I agree that this particular room is too big for that kind of layout.

    the layout is weird and also the little side tables... it looks like some kind of hipster airline v.i.p. lounge.
    i do love the big dining room table and also the small round one with the mismatched chairs.

    Ha ha ha! No shit. I meant it's set up like a "summer" house. It looks so cold to me.... plus you'd have to heat the whole space with it being so open plan, not so ecological....

    The French are not economical, or ecological. Now egotistical...


    Just kidding La Folie!

    And what does 'Mont au Ciel' (sp?) mean?

    It is a street name. Or it was a street name. I am not sure of the spelling.

    I thought it meant 'street to heaven'..I now just looked it up. 'ascends to heaven' it was a street going up a steep hill and ending at a convent. Makes sense then.
