But how did it start this wear your shoes indoor?

Im sorry, if I'm culturally challenged, I really don't understand. (ok you have back pains, but couldnt you keep a pair of indoor shoes in a bag if you went to someones house? I dont mind the shoes so much if they were clean, but no shoes you wear outside are clean.

Fine at your own home, (your home your rules/your cat litter) but it seems really rude to keep dirty shoes on at someone elses home.

What about putting up "no shoes please signs" (like the non smoking signs" for those family members that dont get it, just point and smile)

Oh and mention the poop they are probably dragging around your house on their shoes if they argue.

Then its a Danish thing as well. Or maybe its only an American thing to leave your shoes on.

But why do you need your shoes on is my question?

Yeah it is all a matter of how you grew up I guess. I was taught that besides slippers, shoes is something you wear outside. Plus we had carpets, and with 4 kids in the house my mom was just trying to keep the floors clean.
It didnt use to bother me so much, if people kept them on. But I never really understood why keep them on. after I had a child, and with all the crawling around and putting things in his mouth, it is a rule. Everybodys shoes come off. Shoes regardless if they are not muddy or dusty are full of germs and dirt. Not something I want him touching or eating. It does also keep the noise down, I also live in an apartment.

Yes take your shoes off when you are in someones house. I remind people if they dont. Its is such an obvious polite thing to do. Seem to me, that its not so common in America, not sure why, but to me I always remove my shoes at someone home. The streets are not clean, the car is not clean, the public bathroom is not clean, the garden is not clean. The least you can do is remove your dirty shoes. And yes they will be dirty.

I also cant stand people flossing or cutting their fingernails outside the bathroom. Ive had guests do that in my living room.

lindsey kathlene :

Farsø stolefabrik is Danish. Your chairs are Danish modern. I dont think you can take the backrest off, without risking breaking it. It was probably glued together. Danes speak good english, so if you find an email adress for the company, they might be able to tell you which chairs you have and if you can take them apart. Or contact a skilled wood maker and ask for help.

Im not sure any of them are Wegner chairs.
