Now this is odd, I would have thought those chairs to be thoroughly impractical..
blackdog: Oh I don't know, not very comfortable though.

Excellent contrast. So, white plays white smile
blackdog: Ah yes, well spotted.
This makes me think of a child's cot Mike, but the chairs look none too comfortable, reducing the thinking time and perhaps speeding up the game. I wonder if there is any actual difference between the 'teams'. This reminds me of the First World War Christmas truce, where the two warring sides met in no man's land and realised that they people they were trying to kill were just like themselves.
blackdog: Exactly Chad, it is an anti-war piece by Yoko Ono. It would make a fitting addition to the White House furniture given the current incumbent.
This set was not built for the comfort of ones knees or bum.
blackdog: I would certainly appreciate a generous cushion.
My first thought was the same as Chad's opening sentence on his comment.
blackdog: A simple construction but probably not very comfortable.

Very elegant, but not very comfortable
blackdog: Agreed Philine, it is actually an anti-war piece showing the futility of attacking another as we are all the same really.
Chess as civil war? Those chairs look very uncomfortable but I like the design of the table
blackdog: I guess they would be dreadfully uncomfortable, but I like the design. Just don't expect me to sit in one without a fat cushion.
