Praise for Production Design, or in this case, Chairs.

Every Frame a Painting gives applause to something that's often overlooked: whatever you're sitting on. The chair.

I haven't thought much about chairs before, but they do have a big influence. I guess the one piece of production design that's stuck out to me before is what people use to write, and what kind of paper/handwriting goes with that. You can not only get some time periods set from that but also can kind of judge their style a bit.
@timeturnerjones, I haven't either that's why I found this particular video essay interesting. Also, yes, definitely writing utensils/penmanship/hand writing is so cool to look into in film. The one film that's sticking out in my mind that uses handwriting as a way to show character development is Shane Carruth's Primer. Have you seen it?
@paulisaverage I have not! But, now I have something to add to my watch list for the week :D Lemme get back to you once I give it a watch.
@timeturnerjones It's definitely a movie you have to watch more than once. It's so out there at times but once it finally hits you... It really hits you. Fun fact about the film: When I first heard about it years ago, I heard that they only spent 5000 dollars to make the whole film.
