I'm repulsed, yet strangely attracted

Warning: The Surgeon General has determined that the irony levels necessary to enjoy this room may lead to bleeding from the eyeballs and eardrum prolapse.

Is it a room, or a torture chamber? Let's look at the factors that make me opt for the latter.

A wall of pictures held up by nothing but friction.

Built-in chairs that will compress your spine when you eventually sit on that one hard spot.

Fireplace surrounded by nylon carpet.

Ledge around fireplace that's just perfect for sending you tumbling into the coals.

And the capper, a spiral staircase, wrapped around a fireplace, with no bannister!

Yep, it's a torture chamber, all right.

And it does not even have a TV!! Definitely a torture chamber!!

Seriously though: it might not be very practical but I kind of like it. It looks cozy to me.

Yeah, in a "I know better, but..." kind of way, I like it, too. If you had an old TV cabinet (replete with rabbit ears, of course) that you could hack with a flat screen and place in that room, it would be one sweet retro pad.
