A public art project held in Chicago in the summer of 2001. Each piece was based around a sofa, a chair, an ottoman, and a TV together in some sort of configuration. Each piece was designed and decorated by local artists and they were then placed at various places around the city. People were encouraged to sit on the furniture and just generally have fun with it. Unfortunately the furniture was made of hard fiberglass in order to stand up to the elements, so sitting on them wasn’t exactly comfortable. After the summer was over the pieces were auctioned off and the proceeds were donated to charity.

Overall the exhibition was seen as a big failure compared to the Cows on Parade exhibition in 1999.
