A Seat for a King

I wish I had one of these. Believe it or not, it even has a chess connection. Can you tell me how?

Is it Bobby's from 1972 (or 1992)?

Right. This particular one is neither the '72 nor the '92 chair used by Fischer. Well, I don't think so anyway because I just got this photo at random off the net. But yes, you're right, it's the Fischer connection I was alluding to.

The chair is called the "Eames Executive Chair" and Fischer specifically requested one of these for his Reykjavik match against Spassky.
