If you are a science fiction buff then you will love this next piece. Today’s inspired work is the James T. Kirk Captain’s Chair, a piece of furniture that can make any collector excited. If seeing the hit blockbuster movie over and over again is just not enough, then maybe you want to bring the sci-fi magic into your home or office.
The chair is mounted atop a wood and steel platform, which, similar to the leather seat and fine oak arm rests, is meticulously put together. You also probably wonder if it has the 360 degree swivel action that Kirk’s one had, and the answer is yes. The device runs on a standard AC adapter, so you will need to place it within reach of a wall outlet. If you are a stickler for accuracy and detail, you should know that the James T. Kirk Captain’s Chair is constructed directly from the design conceived by Matt Jefferies, the lead set and art director on Star Trek from 1966 to 1969. The chair is conceived with a working suite of command alert buttons, many of which activate reproduced famous sound effects.
This meticulously detailed and full-scale chair is a direct copy of the one used in the original series, and while you can’t pilot the Enterprise with it, for $2,900 you can own the ultimate geek-chic furniture piece.
