With patch 3.2.2, the Temple Chair decoration can be purchased for 1 credit and sold back for 100 credits. Eric Musco has commented on this warned players that it is considered an exploit.
Temple Chair (Basic) Exploit | 06.23.2015, 07:07 PM
In today’s patch, we placed Temple Chair (Basic) onto the Esstran Exports vendor for one credit. After bringing the servers live today we noticed that currently, you can sell the Chair back to the vendor for 100 credits. Obviously, this is not intended. As stated before, when these issues arise we want to make sure we get out in front of it as quickly as possible and are open with you about what is being done.
For the time being, please do not buy and sell the Temple Chair (Basic) in this manner. This behavior is considered an exploit. We will be addressing this issue as soon as possible. Once fixed, we will investigate and then take appropriate action for use of this exploit.
Thanks everyone. I will pass on update as I have them.

I see some confusion in the thread and wanted to clarify that seeing the Launcher messaging does not indicate that you personally have done something against Terms of Service. This messaging is displayed to the entire player base as a means to inform everyone that we are aware of the exploit and that participating in it will result in action.
If the launcher messaging brought you to this thread thinking that you have been banned or otherwise had action taken against you’re account, don’t worry – we are just trying to get the information to everyone as they log into the game.

Quick update. We have already begun taking action against players who have used this exploit and will continue to monitor the situation. Separately, we are working to get this fixed ASAP and are hoping to get it out today. I know many of you have questions about what is being done, how players are being tracked, etc. I will pass on specifics on all of these things once the issue has been resolved and all action has been taken.
I do want to reiterate, do not participate in this exploit. We made sure to notify everyone ASAP that this was an exploit and that action would be taken against its use. We are taking this issue very seriously, and appropriate action will follow.

We are continuing to remove players who are using the exploit from the game. Currently, players found to be exploiting are all receiving a 7-day suspension. This in no way means that this is the only action that will be taken against them. A 7-day suspension is the minimum suspension we are currently giving out and it removes the player from the game, giving us time to further investigate each account.
After investigating each account (and transfers to related accounts) we will go through and take additional action, including removal of credits, items purchased, and adding additional suspension time up to and including permanent suspension all based on their severity.
Again, we ask that you please avoid use of this exploit. I will continue to pass on updates as I have them
