C Is For Chairs

1 C is for Chairs

I did a quick inventory search on “chairs” yesterday. I was shocked at how many returns I had! From comfy, deep armchairs to straight-backed wooden chairs to cushy and not-so-cushy stools, I’ve got more than I could ever use and many I forgot I had. Some are gacha prizes, others from furniture sets, several are pose props but most are just single chairs that I saw and had to have. I rezzed out a few for this photograph – I could have included a lot more, but hey, I’ve got to do the credits 😉

Oddly enough, while I love home furnishings in Second Life, my avatar rarely sits, unless I’m posing for a picture. I find it strange that even when having friends over for a visit, we usually end up standing around, rather than sitting down for a chat. It’s not like there isn’t at least 100 places to sit on the island. And it’s also not like I couldn’t rez at least a few dozen different chairs or sofas or cushions or benches if what I have displayed wasn’t to my guest’s liking. I have noticed this when I visit other people’s homes, as well.

Is it a common SL phenomenon? Or am I just lacking in social graces? Do you sit when hanging around at home or going to see other people? Do you think people might be more likely to sit if I didn’t have my chairs in a pile?

    Nice composition. The Angel chair stole my attention first.
    As to standing around or sitting…I think its because our AO are static when we sit and less interesting. Anyway, easier to mingle
    if standing.

      Hmmm….could be, although a lot of chairs now have animations rather than static poses. And you could be right about mingling, but it still seems strange to me to be standing around in the living room when there are comfy sofas and chairs right there 🙂

        Probably true… i hear tell she’s a pretty picky bish.. prolly will only set upon a pink princess chair with glitter sparkles and what not. Not sure. . But that’s my guess. 😀 (I’d set on the floor if my Peep was near by. Xo
