The Lord Raffles Lion Throne Chair
stunning center piece
Got this for my husband for Christmas, and he absolutely loves it! HUGE chair, arms do NOT fit under normal desk, but throne is big enough that there's plenty of room to sit & eat/work without sliding the chair all the way under the table. Everyone notices this piece & it really makes a statement. Please be aware that delivery guys will NOT bring this into the house, so you have to argue w/them to open the chair & make sure it is in good condition before accepting delivery of such an expensive piece. I don't know yet how it will hold up over time, but the design itself is fantastic. I also got him a matching knight, so he can feel like King Edward while doing homework w/kids :)

Great chair. Nice carvings
I gave this as a gift to my husband. He's been wanting this for a long time. When I purchased it, he said "he feels like a King." He really loves it. Great product and we have the other matching chairs too. Fit perfectly in our Mediterranean theme dining area. I will recommend. It's comfortable too.

Talk of the town--and you're going to need a new table.
I bought these from Design Toscano over ten years ago. Only now are they starting to show wear from being moved six times. They are absolutely huge, so they do NOT fit under a standard dining room table. DT has one that it WILL go under, or you're going to have to raise the legs on yours. I'm 5'5, and if I sit properly in the chair, my feet don't touch. They are amazing conversation pieces, and every time I move, there's a bidding war for these. They've been loaned to theaters for productions, used in photo shoots, and children have curled up and slept in them. They, sadly, are like horses, a good pair of heels, or diamonds--you can't own just one. I highly recommend.
