Ultimate Game Chair

So you’ve seen the Multimedia Chair and Armed “Movie” Chair, now check out the Ultimate Game Chair.

Gamers put their bodies through so much while playing their favorite consoles what with all the controller-holding, constantly staring at the television and not to forget all the sitting too. Why not give your body a break and treat it to some real luxury?


Stokke Gravity Chair

Priced at a whopping $2310, the Stokke Gravity Chair “can rest in a variety of positions depending on your mood or task; from upright as an office chair to rocked right back for those noon-time naps.” Company information here.
