I seem to recall having had more than one testy tete-a-tete while perched on the edge of this very piece of furniture. The original prototype is owned by Dr. Hilarius who makes use of it in psycho-analytical practice (having obtained it in the hotly contested, but rarely mentioned crying of lot 48). Rest upon these eggs and tell me of your childhood…

For those suffering from martyr complexes or entertaining Christly ambitions – take your choice – we suggest the following design. Portraits of Saint Sebastian recommended but not included.
