Just to clarify the fire I mentioned was NOT in the same building as I am referring to in the above post. Just thought I would mention that. Good responses so far. The furniture is a mix of solid wood and upholstered. I wish there was a way to post pictures or at least drawings on this forum. I see that 184.108.40.206. allows for APPROVED furniture so long as it does not obstruct the means of egress. Most of this furniture is not an obstruction issue as it is not in the main part of the corridor, but is off to the side in a completely open room. Due to the possible fire load and smoke generation ability of the furniture, I’m not sure who would be comfortable approving a situation with so much upholstered furniture. There is one of these lobbies on each of the floors.
