Attention couch designers: you're great when it comes to adding comfort and features to your products, but clearly you have no idea what happens once your blueprint actually becomes reality. So let me clue you in: somewhere, some human being is going to have to pick up that monstrosity, and in only a small percent of cases is that person Lou Ferrigno. Please do those of us who don't perform squat thrusts at a professional level a favor and plan accordingly.
Not only is someone going to have to lift your masterpiece, couch designers, at some point they're also going to have to find a way to jam the thing through a doorway to get it inside a house or apartment. You know, a doorway? That thing you walk through 50 times a day that's three-feet-wide and close to corners, walls, and staircases? Or do you all live in a warehouse?
Here's a thought, couch designers: since couches are the most popular pieces of furniture in the average household and all, what if you tried making one that DIDN'T automatically funnel crumbs, keys, and all of life's other invisible debris straight into a gaping wedge-pit underneath the cushions? You know, like ONE time? Just to see what happens?
On a related note, would it also be too much trouble to try making a couch that DOESN'T leave a clearing underneath it that's tall enough to trap small objects but not tall enough to stick your hand in without laying your entire body out flat on the floor? Or maybe one you could raise or rotate so you don't have to lift or move it just to vacuum down there? IS THIS REALLY THE BEST WE CAN DO?
Just because everyone loves the amazing advancements in couches over the years doesn't mean they ever should've been made. Cup-holders? Mini-fridges? Recliners built RIGHT INTO the couch itself?
What's next, bed-couch hybrids? Entire families just vegetating in front of a TV together in individual beds, only moving when it's time to reach down and grab another Mountain Dew from their own personal refrigerators? News flash, couch designers: we already have living rooms like that, they're called HOSPITALS, and if you all keep this up every last one of us will end up completely immobilized in one soon enough.
Granted, the concept of separating a couch into individual units does sound amazing and would make moving MUCH less frustrating BUT THAT'S BESIDE THE POINT!
