** When Lord Snapcase (not-yet Homicidal Lord Snapcase) replaces his successor Mad Lord Winder, the first thing he does is ask if the chair swivels. The secretary responds he can get a skilled swiveler first thing in the morning.

* The Iron Throne in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' is intentionally CoolButInefficient. Aegon the Conqueror took the swords of all the defeated lords of Westeros and forged them with dragonfire into a scary but still very sharp throne, saying that a king should never sit easy. Kings often cut themselves on the throne, and legend states that it has killed at least one of them.

*** The Speaker of Canada's House of Commons also gets a big fancy chair, minus the built-in toilet. Unlike Britain, everyone else also gets a chair, but they're rather basic compared to the Speaker's chair. In addition, the Canadian Senate actually has ''three'' thrones, one for the Speaker, and two more behind it for the monarch/governor general and his/her spouse (generally only used when Parliament is being opened or the King/Queen is visiting Parliament).

* The Eastern Empire from Mercedes Lackey's later ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' also features a throne of blades, except it's all the personal weapons of every leader the entire line of Emperors has conquered in ''hundreds of years'' of history.

* The Eastern Empire from Mercedes Lackey's later ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' also features a throne of blades, except it's all the personal weapons of every leader the entire line of Emperors has conquered in ''hundreds of years'' of history. They've also been completely melted down before being added to the throne, so there's no risk of injury if you lean back incautiously.

* In one ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'' story, the protagonists were hired to fetch a pillow from a deceased wizard's mansion; Yeagar took a fancy to an Elysium Barcalounger, a fancy chair that had ivory mead cupholders, a Footrest of Pediatric Joy, and Stuffing of Plushiness covered by Upholstery of Mighty Massage. Not believing their employer's warning that [[DontTouchItYouIdiot everything in the house except the pillow was trapped, cursed, or both]], he [[TooDumbToLive convinced Nodwick to pick it up]], and... Well, what happened to them was hidden by a GoryDiscretionShot, but Artax needed a ''squeegee'' to collect their remains before Piffany could use healing magic to restore them.
