    Today, conversation pits are objects of fascination, relics of a time when living space was oriented not around a wall-sized flat screen and portable computers, but around looking at and socializing with other human beings in real life. If we want to get back to some actual face-to-face time, what better way to do it than in a cushioned burrow designed to host an intimate gathering?

    I thought the Mad Men fad was over years ago.
    I'm for defending all rights for everyone.

    I wouldn't necessarily put that in my house, but that's pretty cool.

    It's a huge waste of space.

    You are at eye level with dirt and hair on the floor.

    Someone falls into it. Lawsuit.

    Seems more applicable for a ski lodge, hotel lobby, or a college union building than a residence, but still pretty cool.

    I prefer a raised dais for my throne.
    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.
