The 30-plus times I’ve gone about setting up an apt., or a dorm room, or my high school bedroom even, I’ve always opted to line up the furniture at oblique angles—catty corner against the wall. Maybe slanting the bookcase, for example.
But when I started re-organizing my apt. in a sudden rush after work on Wednesday, I was lining everything up flush against the wall—perfectly parallel.
We’ll see if it lasts.
