6 great chairs on screen

We’ll let you decide what makes these chairs ‘great’. They may not be the most stylish or functional of pieces. In fact, some look downright painful. But they certainly leave a lasting impression. 

Dr Evil’s rotating chair
The damn thing won’t stay still. And how’s an evil mastermind meant to maintain respect in his moon base and fire a ‘laser’ at Washington DC if he can’t even sit still on his command chair? Ideally furniture shouldn’t make you sick as a dog.

Marie Antionette eats cake.
Now, this is luxury. Cake, comfort and shoes – what’s not to love? Of course, it’s not something worth losing your head over.

A sit down with Michael
This image is typical of every second in the Godfather films – it is meticulous with attention to detail. Impeccably dressed and exuding equal amounts cool and menace, Michael Corleone’s comfort stems from the confidence of authority.

Agent J style  

There’s no denying the stylish appeal of the egg shaped chair. With the interior design of the first Men in Black film borrowing heavily from the 50s it made sense that “the best of the best of the best” would be sitting in these. In similar circumstances, we’d suggest at least putting some nice carpet down. 

The Iron Throne
One word describes the Game Of Thrones throne. Ouch. For a longer description author George RR Martin describes it as, “…Ugly. Asymmetric. It’s a throne made by blacksmiths hammering together half-melted, broken, twisted swords, wrenched from the hands of dead men or yielded up by defeated foes… This Iron Throne is scary. And not at all a comfortable seat.” Yes, it’s a chair only a mother-in-law can love.

Comfort control

After serving up a cold dish there’s no better place to relax than in a stylish, comfortable chair. Revenge is known for both a twisted plot and well-crafted design. Victoria’s ‘Queen of the Hamptons’ routine is obviously worth emulating, as we’ve had many requests for such a chair.
