    Nice. I know a chair is a chair and all that, but these styles are freaky close to each other.

    Do you happen to know where she got it? I know a couple of people who might be interested in that.
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    You folks do realize that Tamriel is heavily modeled after Earth, yes?

    There are very few things in game for which their isn't a reasonable facsimile in Earth history.

    My guess is it has something to do with Chim, but it might have to do with ease.

    The furniture like this in game is based on some tradition Indian and Asian-Pacific influenced furniture styles.

    You can buy them from various retailers online, such as the one below.

    Hey! That's pretty awesome! So who came up with the idea first?

    One of the neighbours threw it out (can't imagine why, since it seems to be in perfect condition), and my mum decided to pick it up!

    We believe it's an Indonesian design, but other than that I have no idea where to find one.

    Yup, I've been told it's a curved 'Java (teak) bench', though I've also been able to find it online as a Bali bench.

    Either way, one version of it can be found here, for the real loregeeks who can't live without one:

    Mind you, this was just a quick google search and there are most probably waaay cheaper alternatives around. ;)

    Much of the Vvardenfell furniture has been inspired, or directly copied, from eastern and asian sources, both current and historical material. You can see it on these benches, on the heavy japanese influence, especially all the lotuses, on the historically accurate pellet making tool and in lots of other places. As long as it's kept within the setting of the game and the race, Dunmer aren't asians after all, even though some elements of their culture may be inspired from the region, I think it's a pretty cool feature. It also makes the homes decorated with these furnishings seem more real and lived in, at least that's the feeling I get from a lot of places on Vvardenfell. Again kudos to the design team, you guys really deserve more praise.

    Ah, that explains the Dark Anchor spawn I heard on the way into work.

    Edit: Turns out it was just a train... :(

    Just because you don't like the way something is doesn't necessarily make it wrong...

    If you look at places that make furniture from the naturally shaped wood from trees, you'll find stuff that looks a lot like Telvanni furnishings.
