Similar or the same model chairs can also be seen in Goldfinger (1963) in Goldfinger's private jet that brings James Bond (Sean Connery) and Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman) to the United States. A 6250 chair can also be seen 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 a guitar.
• Its distinctive big wings and soft foam cushioning with deeply buttoned back provide the ultimate in comfort. For added luxury it rocks, glides and swivels too.
• This striking vintage armchair, order 0481174 30, is in exceptional original condition, retaining its original Vandyck draylon brown upholstery, G-Plan label, star design oak base and castors.

The chair used in YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE was auctioned at Julien's on December 5th 2014, selling for $16,250. The auctioned chair was acquired in the 1980s during a liquidation sale by Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom and later purchased by David Reinhardt from the Ian Fleming Foundation. Over the years, the base on the chair has been replaced due to wear and tear (compare with the set photo of Blofeld in the chair). The seat cushion has been restuffed as well, but the rest of the chair remains as it was during filming.

G PLAN
The furniture that rebuilt Britain. A benchmark for British design since 1953, G Plan is renowned for design innovation and evolution. G Plan has a fine heritage and the Sixty Two is one of their iconic designs. G Plan’s origins go back to 1898, when Ebenezer Gomme began handcrafting beautiful furniture in his workshop. In 1953, his grandson Donald launched the G Plan brand and with it a post-war furniture revolution, as he took the then radical step of selling sofas without matching chairs. Over the years G Plan has created some of the most enduring and iconic furniture of the 20th century, blending beautifully balanced design with the perfect mix of style and function to produce high quality furniture.
