Sophistication and Glamour: The Enduring 007 Style
The iconic Paul Conti ‘Model 6250’ Armchair by G-Plan is a luxurious and masculine design that was made famous by super villain ‘Blofeld’ in the James Bond film, ‘You Only Live Twice’. We are pleased to offer this iconic design in this weeks new vintage arrivals.
While any James Bond film revolves around the girls, the gadgets, and the action – we think the interiors tend to steal the scene. Inspired by the enduring 007 style, this week we’re showcasing some of our favourite Bond interiors paired with our sleek designs that are sure to impress.

This rare vintage offering is a 1960s top of the line offering from G-Plan who coined it “the world’s most comfortable chair." It also featured in the classic Michael Caine movie 'Get Carter'. Caine's character Jack Carter puts an end to Cliff Brumby who slumps back into the chair...What a comfortable way to go.
