Get there early to fulfill your Hot Wheel fantasy and snag a primo parking spot under the chair. The chair is bolted down really well- no chance of a Hollywood style heist by a collector of oversized furniture.

This giant chair is set up in a parking lot. It is over one of the car lanes, so it is set up to be driven under.

It's the big chair next to the LA Mart in Los Angeles. I saw this when I was out for jury duty and took a pic to blog about it. Saw your site and thought I would share my picture.

Made of oak, this 40-foot-tall chair was made in Friuli, Italy, by the same company that built Italy's 60-foot-tall chair, the one that dethroned America from the World's Largest Chair title. This taunting "peace offering" ambassador chair itself ranks among the World's Largest Chairs.
