...that's just ridiculous.  Check out the "Shair" a chair you can literally share with others.  Really neat idea.  I myself have had some seating issues in my new apartment.  Although my apartment is great, it is small and I don't want to clutter it up too much (I'm sort of a minimalist at heart).  I like a clean open room and too much seating can definitely hinder that, but it also is inconvenient when you have a gathering.  Maybe the Shair is just what I need!
