Damn their hides. The rich have all the cool things. Like this leather chair that takes up a bunch of space and only seats one. That’s because the rest of the chair is devoted to hiding some of your other rich accessories, like your billiards stuff.
It helps keep your overpriced pad all neat and tidy. Who cares that it looks freakish and pompous and only seats one. If you want two people to be able to sit during a Billiards game, you’ll just buy two and store some more expensive stuff in the second one. Ahhh, it’s good to be rich and buy fugly things.
