Which doesn't answer the question - one out of how many photographers print their photos poster size so people would view it from 1ft.300dpi gives a viewing distance of 1ft. That's entirely reasonable for a poster-print hanging in a living room, when someone wants to take a close look to identify a feature or person.
Sure there are some who do, my point is those are rare. E.g. I've seen plenty of pictures larger than poster hanging in people's living rooms (I have two in my apartment), just not photos.
