Vintage Vibe - The World’s Most Comfortable Chair

Looks and comfort are our main criteria when searching for a chair that's meant to be more than just something to display in our home.

And if you're looking to put your feet up on something comfortable and with good back support, we have something perfect for you. The G Plan Vintage Sixty Two swivel chair has got the looks and the right support with its not too squishy, yet not too firm foam padding. It has a design borrowed from the classic wing chair but so much more stylish and it could definitely make it to the top of the people's choice awards.

Comfort by design

What makes the Sixty Two comfortable? Its iconic design is a very popular one and you might already be familiar with it. Created in 1962 as 6250 by G Plan it quickly became known as ‘The World’s Most Comfortable Chair’. And now, renamed as The Sixty Two, it’s distinctive winged design, soft foam cushioning and deeply buttoned back, provide the ultimate in comfort. For added luxury, it rocks and swivels too.

Dating back to 1898, G Plan is one of the UK's largest furniture brands and has become a benchmark for British design. Their aim is to create supremely comfortable and stylish sofas that are designed to be lived on.

It's all in the detail

Incredibly cozy and comfortable the Sixty Two is a versatile piece of furniture that could complement a classic sofa in the living room or could easily be included in your bedroom’s décor. Originally upholstered in black vinyl, but other colours were introduced later, this magnificent chair is today available to order in a choice of 47 beautiful fabrics and 15 luxurious types of leather. Make it yours with matching or contrasting buttons for an interesting look tailored perfectly to your individual space.

It's the perfect place for you to indulge in your favourite read or just enjoy your own thoughts.






You only live twice

Made famous by the 1967 James Bond movie, You Only Live Twice, as the supervillain Blofeld’s chair. The 6250 chair can also be spotted in the Beatles film Help! (1965), where it's part of the furniture in the Beatles house. At some point in the film, John Lennon sits in the chair playing the guitar.

In 1982 the chair was discontinued, but in 2012 G Plan brought the model back, renamed as 'The Sixty Two'. Each piece is carefully handcrafted by a specifically selected craftsman at the G Plan Factory, based in Melksham, England. This chair will continue to be an icon for many years to come.
