Build Your Kingdom Around Your Throne: As Seen on TV
Looking around the web, one can find a variety of exclusive and highly customized office spaces featured. Creatives will pimp their work area with as many bells and whistles necessary to reflect their personal style and character. The shots below exemplify just how decked out some people are willing to commit to having an original space, in which to get things done. These pictures were pulled from the Lifehacker Workspace Show and Tell Pool.
But if you are a fan of medieval cable television shows and want to make your computer room/home office more unique than any other in your freelance network, you are gonna want this underneath you!
Yes, that is a life-size, cast iron reproduction of the lead throne in the HBO hit series Game of Thrones. It can be yours for a mere bag of shells at $30,000 (and toss on another $1,800 for safe passage to your kingdom). And if you think for one minute that this won’t send your Klout, Kred, PeerIndex and PeekYou ratings thru the roof when you start posting pictures of yourself issuing decrees and proclomations on Instagram, then read some of the comments of those that have been
crazy warrior enough to grab one;
By Con King of IT from Los Angeles…
I replaced my regular office chair with one of these. The entire company usually refers to me as the Tyrant of IT. Now I have the chair that goes with it. I sit in this thing like a boss and just glare at people who come in with ridiculous requests.
By Not a half man from Kings Landing…
My kids wanted a good education. They just got it. Kids, you have to work hard so you can spend hard money wisely…like your father.
Personally I think a person would have to be a certified loon to spend $30g’s on a chair they saw on a tv show. What happens if the Game of Thrones jumps the shark and gets cancelled? Or even worse, picked up by Netflix with a significantly lowered production budget? And if that seat is worth that much, then how much is the Oval Office, presidential seat from the West Wing worth? And how much is the command seat from the bridge of Enterprise gonna set you back?

The Game of Thrones Iron Throne is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. This custom chair is designed to mimic the seat of kings in the Seven Kingdoms. On the show, the Iron Throne was constructed by Aegon I Targaryen, the first king of the Seven Kingdoms. He made it from the swords surrendered by his enemies. Legend has it, it’s made of a thousand swords that took 59 days to hammer out into a throne. Spikes and jagged edges in every direction make this one very intimidating lounge. Our version is constructed of hand-finished, hand-painted fiberglass and fire-proof resin that’s been twisted and turned to re-create the Game of Thrones design. Now’s your chance to own this very special custom-made piece of furniture that, by all appearances, is more closely related to art. Extra large in size, it measures over 7′ in height, close to 6′ in depth and 5.5′ in width. Calling it “impressive” is an understatement.
A Throne By Any Other Name
Yes, that does say 7 feet tall, 350 pounds! So, get rid of what you don’t need and make room!
My advice to anyone
that would listen with that type of (let them eat) cake to throw around would be to wait a season or two to see if the show is more than just a flash in the pan, or at least until they offer to throw in lower lumbar support. But if you must get this exorbitant piece of TV memorabilia or feel compelled to cross throne off of your wish list, check it out here.
