annals of bad design? seating facing away from the view

porch settees facing away from the view

We were AMAZED when we stumbled on this picture taken from a Sydney, Australia real estate listing : a porch with clunky, hard-to-move chaises all facing inside the house, away from the view.

    That’s how I’d arrange it. So I can read my book 😉

    It’s Australia. Even the toilets flush backwards.

    When looking at properties as a second home on the Chesapeake Bay, we were taken to one home on a lovely cove with lots of windows on the front of the house…facing the road. Not a single window looking toward the water — neither side nor back. So weird!
