I'm of the belief that every communual room in your home should have some sort of a conversation piece. You know, something a bit unusual that guests can notice upon entry and then later point to when the conversation starts to dry up a bit and they need something fresh to talk about.
Honestly, it's more of a courtesy than anything else. Sure, it can be a bit of an eyesore if you pick something really outrageous. But when it's all in the name of keeping the good times going and the conversation flowing, nothing is off the table.
If you're in the market for such a decor piece and have about $95,000 burning a hole in your pocket, I think I've found the perfect couch for you.
