An obscure obsession, perhaps, but there's something irresistably entertaining about chairs placed halfway up walls. I remember as a young child seeing a cottage with a small child's rocking chair placed halfway up its wall. I was fascinated. Of course, that chair was probably purely ornamental.

The canonical, and in my opinion, best, instantiation of this phenomenon is Liam Gallagher in the UK version of the video to Oasis' "Live Forever" (the one where they bury the drummer). Liam, sat arrogantly halfway up a wall pouts at us through his sunglasses.

Pure class.

Alas, I have been unable to find any scans of chairs halfway up walls. It is the first thing I've searched for on the internet and failed to find.
