There's a building in the Bay Area that has furniture affixed to the
outside wall. Colorful chairs, some lamps, a chaise lounge, a TV. The
chair legs are perpendicular to the wall, so it looks like the
furniture is defying gravity. The building looks like your average
apartment residence, with white paint and a fire escape and some mural
art below. Is this public art or just a crazy landlord? Where is it?
How long has it been around?

It's called "Defenestration."  It's at 6th & Howard Street. It's been
around since 1997. It's an art project.

There's also a little write-up about it on

I hope this helps.
