As many of you know, we now have no longer bound furniture. The reason this is so important is because it allows us to truly understand the relationship between people. When we no longer have to take our seats, we can fully interact with others. We can sit with friends, be in the same room with friends, or be in a room with friends. This changes the way we relate to others and the way we interact with other people.
For example, if someone had to take their seat in a large, expensive, business-oriented conference room, would they feel totally comfortable sitting there? I doubt it. It wouldn’t be pleasant. The same is true for a large, expensive, business-oriented conference room. Would you feel comfortable there? Probably not. But if you’re in a room with a large, expensive, business-oriented conference room, then it feels like a cozy place.
There’s a different kind of privacy in the room. In a conference room you can have the same set of people when you visit them. You can have a group of people in the room who interact with each other, but it wouldnt feel comfortable.
No privacy. No intimacy. No intimacy. No intimacy.
The only thing that seems to make a difference when you are in a conference room is the audience. You know what’s going on in the room when you’re in a conference room right? You know what your audience is. The audience is the person who actually gives the most attention to you when you’re in the room. If the audience wants to talk with you, you’ll have to invite that.
I’ve seen people in the room who are totally comfortable with their own privacy, but I wouldnt feel comfortable asking them to leave the room. I mean, if I was a woman in a room with a man or a man in a room with a woman, I wouldnt feel comfortable inviting them to leave to see what happens, because it’s probably going to be awkward.
No matter how comfortable you are with your own privacy, youre going to have to be willing to move your furniture if the audience wants to talk to you. That might sound obvious, but people who are comfortable with their own private space sometimes need to be told when something is wrong with their personal space.
We’ve all probably had the experience where while sitting down to dinner with friends or going to the gym, you start to feel uncomfortable and you wonder what the problem is. There are lots of reasons to feel this way. The most common is that you’re not comfortable with your own privacy. The second most common is that you’re not comfortable going to bed with someone who doesn’t like you (or who doesn’t like you enough to make the entire evening a burden).
You don’t have to feel this way, because everyone has a space they like to be alone in. It is our responsibility as users of the web to make sure that everyone is comfortable and allows themselves to be comfortable. To do this, we need to help people feel good about the space theyre in. In order to do this we need to make it feel safe and comfortable, and that takes a lot of work, but the results can be amazing.
If you’re in a room with people you dont know well and are having a hard time getting through to them, it might be time to start using a new piece of furniture. Maybe it doesnt have to be a piece of furniture you put together, but you could make it feel a little more comfortable. A wall or two can help to make it feel more spacious or even make it look better. And don’t feel bad if its not a simple wood thing.
