Emperor Palpatine is one of the most iconic villains in the Star Wars canon. Played to perfection by veteran actor Ian McDiarmid, Palpatine is known for this menacing laugh, lightning fingers, and general theatrics. You, maybe not so much, but now you can at least sit proud like the Emperor in this incredible armchair from Regal Robot.

Inspired by Palpatine's black and purple throne seat – which is featured prominently in Return of the Jedi – this upholstered chair is the perfect office accent for any superfan. The chair sits on a chrome base that swivels so you can spin to face any steadfast ally or rebellious enemy. The chair is made in the United States and ships in about 8 to 10 weeks. It runs $1,499 – a steep price but totally worth it considering how truly menacing and perfectly crafted it is.
The chair is one Regal Robot's newest Custom Studio products. The company specializes in furniture, art, and decor; specifically Star Wars, but also nostalgia and space-themed objects and designs. (They even accept commissions!) If you like the Palpatine chair, be sure to check out other Star Wars decor on their site, including a Han in Carbonite desk and a replica of the Millennium Falcon in the asteroid field in coffee table form.
