Often, the best way to truly appreciate something is to return to its beginning. The Throne is the original chair that Secret Lab launched in 2015. The company has been staying astride of the needs and wants of gamers ever since with an exceptional, evolutionary line of gaming chairs. Today, we are fortunate to be able to explore this evolution with the Throne 2018 edition.

    Does the dog come included? I'm not really ready for that kind of commitment from a gaming chair.

    That was just to show you how it's so comfortable even you dog will want to steal your chair when you get up like dogs do.

    Recommended Height is only 4'9" - 5’3” when the average male is 5'11", This is a very petite chair using a standard generic base with a better than average upper cushioned seat for Very Small people. A Bit Shocking for 399.00 us

    Well certainly a chair not designed with Meghan Trainor in mind.

    Holy Moly! That cost is ridiculous for a chair. My neighbor just bought the chair below for under $100 and it looks and feels great.

    $300+ dollars and the armrests are on a single post? LOL. You will want a chair where the armrests bolt on to both the bottom and back of the chair for support or in a month they will be loose and wiggle.

    Secret Labs, if I am remembering correctly, is based in Singapore. East and South East Asians (both male and female) generally tend to be a lot lighter. If they followed through with the pattern we see with brands such as Vertagear (California based) and Noble Chairs (German), some models will be for larger er heftier physics.

    I wasn't sure about the armrests at first but they feel really nice especially if you don't like to wear long sleeves a lot.

    It's also pretty awesome they've applied the same quality throughout their line to a smaller chair, I think this will really appeal to many gamers and streamers who enjoy quality especially when it feels as good as it looks.

    When did average male height become 5'11"? My googling shows it's up to 5'10" now for the US. Still that 220 pound max isn't great...
    The Con was hilarious though!

    People keep trying to build a gaming chair that is like a recliner that is comfortable to sit in.

    See the future...just get a recliner and build a lap desk for your keyboard/mouse and any other peripherals you use a lot.

    Did that a couple years ago and will never go back to any type of "computer/desk" chair.

    And you will not spend 3-400 bucks either most likely.

    It also reminds me of the recliner/toilet from Idiocracy.

    Lol it feels odd actually owning a Throne, look out Game of Thrones! I'll be watching it in 2019 sitting on this amazing chair. Still so comfortable and great to use!
