Five classic chairs from 60's spy movies

  • The sheik's (Eames) executive lounge chair atop his hydrofoil in "Modesty Blaise" (1966)
  • The swivel (Eames again?) chair Derek Flint straddles in the poster for "Our Man Flint" (1965)
  • The chaise longue James Bond is dropped into, falling from a chute in the Tokyo underground (Tanaka's HQ) "You Only Live Twice" (1967)
  • Blofeld's super wide supervillain wing chair in his volcano lair (accurately lampooned in the Austin Powers trilogy).
  • The tan leather armchairs in the Pentagon in "You Only Live Twice" (Ken Adam again). 1967 was the high water mark for cool movie chairs.
