This Insane Gold Skull Throne Is Fit for a Supervillain
This is like something out of a Bond villain’s lair.
Everyone secretly loves a villain. There are subtle scientific reasons why we gravitate towards the Voldemorts, the Ernest Blofelds, and the Darth Vaders of our culture, but there’s also a more obvious reason why being bad is good: when you’re the villain, you get a super sweet hidden lair. And what better centerpiece for a sanctuary of doom than a giant fucking gold skull throne?
That appears to be the logic behind this giant Gold Skull Armchair, a throne fit for a Bond villain’s hidden bunker handcrafted in Paris by HAROW. Crafted from steel, fiberglass and black velvet, this reinforced armchair comes coated in 24-karat gold. The function of this piece, according to the designer? “Establish its domination.” Obviously.
There’s no way you’ll ever buy this — it costs $500,000, for God’s sake — but it’s still a thing of beauty to look at. And when we finally take over the world, well, we know where we’ll be toasting our villainy from.
