ok. that is puzzling. But the shadows on top make me think it's not photoshopped, and if you look carefully, it looks like an air vent is underneath.... so maybe they *mounted* it to let the air flow..... which I would think would be a big undertaking!

A finished platform with a air register on front would assure guests that there is not a poltergeist in the room :)

Inside the platform, a flexible or solid dryer venting tube could convey the air from the wall vent to the platform register. A platform with a grilled wooden panel on front would have been even less effort.

Hmmmm ok let's think :

1 - The revolving fan turns so fast that it sends air to the ground which swooshes upwards et the walls with such pressure that the cabinet is suspended in mid-air.

2- This house was once occupied by Salvador Dali or René Magritte

3- A very strong person is holding the cabinet off camera towards the right in order to show that there is a vent.

4-It's actually the desk lamp that is haunted and is trying to fly off but the owners glued it to the cabinet to keep it from escaping.

5-The photograph was actually taken sideways and what we think is a wall is actually a floor with a cellar door and a ceiling fan fixed like a sconce to the wall.

6-They keep their helium balloons in the cabinet.

7 -The interior of the cabinet is lined with steel, and the house has a giant electro-magnet in the attic. The lamp is used as a weight to keep the cabinet from hitting the ceiling.

8 - The cabinet is placed on a very efficient "trompe-l'oeil" pedestal painted to ressemble the wall, border and carpeting underneath.

9-Someone is trapped inside and trying to communicate.

10 - someone who was in charge of fixing the speaker to the wall of the music room got it all wrong.

11- This room was used in a super-glue comemrcial from the late 1980s.

just a few suggestions :-)

Sara, are you just completely cracking up while you are writing these? I imagine you snickering, gafawing and snorking away as you write these comments. What the hell goes through your mind??? You are completely crazy--meant in a very good way!

Sara said...

It's true, anonymous. I do this to crack myself up more than anything else.

Scott said...

The big question is, since it's attached to the house, does it come with the house? And if not, what will the wall look like after they tear it down?

Tony Paul forgot one more possibility:

12. Someone jumped on the other side of the room just before the photo was taken and the floors are really bouncy.

One of our drug reps can levitate... perhaps he bought this house?!

Tony Paul, I think my fav. is #6. It makes perfect sense AND it made me laugh until I almost peed. Also, Start's comments are just about as funny as the blog itself. Please never go away, Stuart (or Sara!!!).

Stuart: ulta-Light Oak! Ha! that's the best one!

drjim said...

Actually, the owner is a scientist working on a Top Secret government anti-gravity project!

At least the ceiling fan isn't hovering several inches below the ceiling with no visible mounting connection?

Callisto said...

Mind is officially blown. Somebody call Ripley.

thinking they get high water?

How does the piano lamp figure in? Curiouser and curiouser.

Liz said...

Tony Paul's idea #8 makes me want to put all my furniture on trompe-l'oeil platforms.

bonnie said...

Tony Paul - I love #8 but the real explanation is #11

Maybe the owners were VERY Tall... and wanted their knickers to be more accessible. (or whatever they put in those drawers...)

Eeek! I'll give you a hundred bucks to sleep under it when it's full & heavy. Actually scares me as a parent of toddlers who might crawl under there. Hope that thing's secured to the wall EXTREMELY well.

Blake: maybe you're onto something -- it's made of sapient pearwood, and climbed up the wall?
