At long last now we know what people are talking about when they reference the big chair in Anacostia! Perhaps the most random site I’ve seen in a while.

    There is also a big green chair in the Glover Park area around 35th and R.

  • Formica Jones

    Finally, a chair to sit my big fat ass.

  • Sahar

    This makes me long for a resurgence of the glorious furniture store commercial where they sang “got a big fine couch, won’t you back that thing up!” because the closing line of that sweet jam was “across from The Big Chair in Anacostia!”

  • Pennywise

    In Geneva, Switzerland is a similar giant chair missing one leg which is somehow a tribute to landmine victims. I am sure someone could get on CNN if they did a Big Chairs of the World google map sort of thing.

  • Pennywise

    Is the furniture store there still open?

  • Ro


  • Manner Park

    Whoa, I thought I was back in NC for a minute….

  • Golden Silence

    Are you talking about the furniture store that made this horribly ridiculous commercial? (Warning: Unattractive and out of shape men dancing topless while talking about “back that thang up!”)
