Now it's your turn. Are we being too harsh? Or can you find more things wrong with these two pictures? We have a feeling it's the latter -- so get in here and let us know what you see!

This morning, our friends over at Curbed pointed us toward World Architecture News' feature on the Cooper Square Hotel, which spotlighted the first-ever photos of hotel's lobby and finally offered an explanation of the building's curious shape. (It was actually meant to evoke "a face starting small at the neck and widening upwards" and not so much a shark's fin or a sail).
When we first glanced at these lobby shots, we thought they were kinda "meh" like the rooms. After looking at them for longer than two seconds, however, it seems that we've arrived at a conclusion: we're loving the spectacular natural light -- and that's about it.
We're not interior designers, so perhaps we are missing the genius of the whole concept here -- but then the fact that we're not interior designers should really give our opinion a little bit more merit, no? We're hotel guests. We're the ones who are supposed to use this space and like it.
And, frankly, we don't. Let's play a game we at HotelChatter like to call What's Wrong With This Picture? Here, we'll get it started with what we can see right off the bat:
· The decals on the doors create a bit of a sushi restaurant vibe.
· That couch does look comfortable. At all.
· That rug just doesn't fit. Something is not quite right. Maybe too much going on with the flowery doors and the rug together?
Oh, and there's more! Check out another shot of the lobby after jump.
