Apparently this is what 1999 was supposed to look like in the world of interior design. HAL would fulfill your every whim from your odd chair/console center. (Of course, he'd eventually take over the whole household and create a mutiny with the dishwasher.) And I bet if you sit on the chairs in the foreground you'd roll off the back immediately.
The one saving thing in this whole monstrosity is the dotted orb decorations around the console. I'd make fish bowls out of them. [Lileks]
