Van Pelt is redecorating, and it needs your help. Librarians have lined up samples of four chairs, three stools and a table past the main circulation desk, all of which seem to be imported from the Sims. Disregard the colors and fill out a survey card with your thoughts and feelings about the new furniture you’d like to see in VP.
But if you can’t decide, UTB is here to fulfill the press’s role in democracy, to help you separate the chairs from the thrones.
First up is the orange chair, which looks like it’s about to get slimed.
Then there’s the blue chair. Armless. Legless. It is a minimalist lump that will not catch you if you fall asleep.
The red chair is a little disturbing. Moving on.
The white chair rises from a single leg, like a martini glass or a flamingo. The sinewy mobius strip back conjures the infinite. Under The Button officially endorses the white chair in its candidacy.
So, all of the stools are horrible pieces of crap, and the stool as a category is a disgrace to the furniture world. That being said, the best stool is the one with the orange cap and the circle cutouts. It’s mod, and mod is in right now, so it wins.
Note: All stools rocked a bit when UTB quality control experts gave them a little shake. Another notch for the stools, which really don’t belong in a library.
The table is running unopposed, and we wish it well.
