so my boyfriend is studying industrial design, which is basically anything that can be mass-produced.  this quarter, their project was to design and build a chair.  i think i saw him, on average, about an hour a day, despite the fact that we live together.  it totally sucked, but i think the end result was probably worth it.  what do you guys think?

all done!


i think he said it's called (paren.).  don't know why, though...


under construction:


that's me, sewing the cushion cover.  i accused him of running a sweatshop:

I love love love love love it!

Is it named for parentheses, perhaps, because it's curled on either end?

a positive attitude may not improve the situation, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

hmm, lamantin, i don't know.  he hasn't let me sit on it yet. Undecided  i mean, there's no back support, but the cushion and the arms are 5" foam. 

and yes, it's definitely named for parentheses.  i was being facetious, but facetious doesn't come across so well in type.
