Bad habits can be difficult to change. But, there are some habits we never want to get rid of because they work for our lifestyles or personalities.
Like putting like things together.
Like color coordinating the clothing in your closet.
Like using labels on shelves.
Like putting things back immediately after using them.
Do these work for you? They really work for me.
Well, when you put two people with two different sets of habits together, and both think their way of doing things is fabulous, who’s right? Especially, when one of them (me) thinks the other one (not me) is wrong? Does it really matter who’s right (yes)?
Aaaand, is there ever a time to keep a bad habit just because it’s too hard to break? Instead of breaking it (even though it’s wrong), maybe a work-around is better? So, if someone (not me) has a habit of not using hooks for clothing and prefers the floor instead, should the other someone (me) force that person into submission?
Or, should that person (me) find a work-around like this?
This chair by Lunar, that strikingly resembles a hanger, was designed to “honor, celebrate and playfully interact with those [bad] habits through their design.” Would some of us (me) find this, er, solution acceptable? Do we really want to “honor” a bad habit? Hmmm… Did I mention that these are the same folks who came up with the hamper chair?
This is just one of many bad habits that are out there, right? What about the others already invading your life? Should you look for an alternate solution or keep the fighting the good fight?
But perhaps the most important questions is this: Who’s right? The person celebrating life’s less organized activities or the person (me) who likes order…and using hooks?
Welcome to our regular “Transformers” feature (click link and scroll down to see them all). A transformer is a thing that started out as one thing, has been rehabbed, and now functions as another thing. A transformer can also be a thing that is really another thing all at the same time. Check out our latest find…
I soooo wish this new find was already on the market, but sadly, it’s not. It’s called Hampered Seating by Lunar. Basically, you throw your dirty laundry in it, and when it’s full, you sit in it.
It’s an interesting concept and I wonder if it would really work well as seating. It could be a nice conversation starter, though…but then that would mean inviting people into your bedroom or leaving the chair in your living room.
Check it out and let me know if you would use this transformer.
