We have made a lot of assets already. It would be idiotic to build a brand new chair every time we needed a chair. Just as Starfleet wouldn't get the corps of engineers to design and manufacture a new chair every time they needed a new chair. They would likely get some copies of a chair they already had the plans for.
That said, what you see is not 10 seconds of work, and Implementation does matter, as that often requires more time than the asset creation in the first place.
I'm sorry if you are disappointed with this project. Don't queue for it, don't spend your Dil on it, and save it for one you do like.
The reusable assets you mentionned are not the main selling point in the other situations. There's a universe of difference between reusing a chair in a new episode you would sell and directly selling that old chair.
