The Lord Raffles Lion Throne Chair
Hand-carved mahogany signature piece is an investment in European style
You've come to expect the unexpected from Design Toscano, and so we've purposely outdone ourselves by combing the Gothic castles of Europe to bring you this exquisite Medieval antique replica throne chair! Originally created for Lord Thomas Stamford Raffles, who founded the British colony of Singapore, it features deep, large-scale solid mahogany hand-carvings of royal court symbols and massive growling lion heads that require over a week of work by a single artisan. The 8-way spring tied seats and deeply cushioned backs are hand-upholstered and double piped on both sides in a heraldic jacquard of aristocratic gold, burgundy, and navy. Our regal Gothic throne is topped by an ornate hand-carved mahogany coat of arms as an investment in fine European styling.
Throne: 36"Wx37"Dx68"H. 86 lbs.
Stool: 24"Wx24"Dx24½"H. 35lbs.
Was: $2,250.00
Now: $1,999.00

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unbelievable craftsmanship quality I love this chair. the photo does not give enough credit to the massive size of this beautiful chair. this chair is really big. the intricate carved lion heads must be six inches in diameter. the measurements listed are correct otherwise. I would recommend this lion chair if you have the room, you will be amazed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
