  1. The Ball Chair. Used by No.2 in The Prisoner. Perfect for rotating around in when someone come into your office (maybe stroking a Cat as well?) so that you can face them the Globe chair is a bit of Sixties kitsch that is still popular today. The vision of Finnish designer Eero Aarnio. No.2 kept changing so this chair allowed him or her to slouch, show menace or lounge threateningly all in one.
  2. The Iron Throne. Used by The King/Queen of Westeros in Game of Thrones.  The source of much debate and War as to who should sit in it the Iron throne was the top seat in the kingdom as whosoever sat in it ran the seven. As it was made from the swords of the armies defeated by Aegon Targaryn and forged with Dragonfire it wasn’t the most comfy of seats and a royal decree of a few pillows was not uncommon.
  3. The Emperors chair. Used by Darth Sidious in Return of the Jedi. Being the head of a galactic empire takes a lot of time so you need a nice chair with a nice space view in your new Death Star. Obviously it has to be able to rotate 360 degrees so that you can look out the window at the rebel scum’s fleet being destroyed and then spin it back round to the task of getting a replacement for Darth Vader. It’s all coming together rather well isn’t it?

  1. The Throne of Xerxes. Used by Xerxes in 300. This is a massive solid gold throne featuring intricate gold lace work steps a padded oval back and two huge horned Aurochs pointing out the sides abd two lions at the front. It’s also a Palaquin which means that you need a hundred slaves to cart you around in it. Might be a little over the budget but hey who’s the boss!
