to think the Iron Throne looks like a bloody uncomfortable, pimped IKEA chair....

Really don't understand why they're all fighting over it.

There's some lovely tapestry/wooden chairs knocking about. Why don't they just sit on one of them?


Or have I missed the point..?

It's symbolic, innit? Of lots of swords or something.

My throne will be a big squishy man chair thing.

It will be stuffed with the hair of my enemys

Stokes Thu 13-Mar-14 21:45:21

I've sat on it - it feels like cheap, plastic garden furniture.

YOU'VE SAT ON THE IRON THRONE?!?! envyenvyenvyenvyenvy

I have also sat on it, whilst holding my perfect son. I certainly did not quote Cersei whilst doing so. No.

Nor is it my Facebook profile picture.

I have a relative who is a recurring extra who recently died on screen in a very gory scene.

All these little things make me seem much cooler than I really am sad

perplexedpirate Thu 13-Mar-14 21:59:51

I have a friend (of a friend) who was a similar extra!
I wonder if it's the same one.
How is everyone sitting on the Iron Throne and I'm not?

There was an exhibition of stuff from the show. I went in Belfast, but I think it travelled around.

Littlegreyauditor Thu 13-Mar-14 22:02:55

Yep, Belfast. It was in Titanic for a few days, so obviously I took my 8 week old to see it. priorities

Cuckooforcocopuffs Thu 13-Mar-14 22:03:59

I went to that exhibition in NYC last year.

TheOrchardKeeper Thu 13-Mar-14 22:04:15

I sat on it in Belfast. It was made out of plastic though and really awkward to sit on...but totally worth it for living the dream grin

Littlegreyauditor Thu 13-Mar-14 22:04:29

My relative is female and is also a stand in for a major character perplexed if that sounds familiar?

TeaMakesItAllPossible Thu 13-Mar-14 22:18:34

I wish they had chairs like that in IKEA. I would buy just one and myself, DH and 4DSs will fight each meal time to sit in it.

I will be a short brunette, shite at sword fighting Brienne of Tarth.

I need a new friend who can get me some sitting down action.

Jolleigh Thu 13-Mar-14 22:28:19

I'd buy the iron throne if Ikea started selling it.

I'd put it in the garden smile

Binkyridesagain Thu 13-Mar-14 22:30:42

I don't care if its uncomfy I would still do Sean Bean whilst he sits on it.

perplexedpirate Thu 13-Mar-14 22:32:39

My friend is male and is now deaded by chopping.
I'm going to have to look into this, I long to sit on the ikea throne!

McFlurry Thu 13-Mar-14 22:32:40

I have sat on it. As has my DD who actually appeared in S3 so is obviously the rightful heir to it cos that's how it works, isn't it? grin

Tis uncomfortable and a bit cheap looking, to be honest. I'd rather rule from an Ikea Poang myself.

RhondaJean Thu 13-Mar-14 22:35:21

I'm thinking a lazee boy would be a good option to rule from.

The one with the little built in cooler would be ideal for the longer day of regal duties.

Fecklessdizzy Thu 13-Mar-14 22:36:03

Wow ... I bet the allen keys that come with it would be really doom-laden and scary and the little man on the instructions would have a HUGE sword and a pile of ickle cartoon severed heads. And a dragon. Possibly a dire wolf too.

Seconds Binky's SB-related letcherousness ...

Littlegreyauditor Thu 13-Mar-14 22:39:49

When I rule I shall reign from the comfort of my large Buddha bag.

I love mine apart from that time I got stuck in it whilst very pregnant.

NinjaBunny Thu 13-Mar-14 23:00:05

They need to stop beheading people.

It's a waste of good actors.


MomOfTwoGirls2 Thu 13-Mar-14 23:17:35

I want Daenerys Targaryen to sit on the iron throne.
I will be sooooooo pissed off if she is killed off.

RiverTam Thu 13-Mar-14 23:25:46

it's a waste of hot actors <mourns Robb Stark in all his brooding moody lushness>

YouTheCat Thu 13-Mar-14 23:27:49

Hodor for king! grin

Dp sat on the Iron Throne at the weekend. Said it was quite comfy.

Binkyridesagain Thu 13-Mar-14 23:29:56

Stop it with the spoilers! I'm reading the books not watching the TV series (I do google the characters though to make sure they are as I imagine. I am not disappointed)
