Does anyone know or have a guess as to why this change is being made? It appears in the preliminary release notes for update 10 on Bullroarer, which means it will likely go live:

"The Seer's Orb has been changed from the Small Furniture category to the Thin Furniture category."

I guess it isn't a big deal, but I do like the look of the Seer's Orb as a central piece in a room - which won't be an option if it becomes thin furniture. Maybe there's a reason behind it, I just can't come up with it.
