The hotel corridor furniture positioners' art is multi-faceted. There are moments when they create settings that speak of the fragile nature of human communication or they place a single chair that evokes Edgar Allan Poe. Here are some examples. Try not to have nightmares.
It has three legs. It looks like a spider. It serves no useful function... AND IT'S OUTSIDE YOUR DOOR!!!
"This holiday can we practise being in an old people's home by sitting outside the lift in a semi-formal manner on those chairs with the big cushions that smell slightly of wee?"
Some people are hardened to the discomfort of having a bit of a sit-down in a corridor of a hotel. That is why some establishments cater for these people with seats that don't have the devil-may-care ambience of comfortable upholstery. The only people you will ever see sitting in these chairs are members of hardline Christian religious sects who haven't liked anything since the 19th century and who only have sex through a hole in a piece of hardboard.
It's three in the morning. You've been working late in your room and you realise you've left the charger for your phone in the car. You leave your room, walk down the corridor, open the fire door...
AND THERE'S AN OLD LADY SITTING IN THE SOLITARY CHAIR AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS!!! And she's knitting or something.
