There are plenty of gaming chairs. There are very few gaming chaise lounges. In fact, as far as I can tell, Hendrick’s Gin is the only company to try and make the latter.
Priced at a mere £2999.99 (just under $4,000 USD), the gaming chaise is designed specifically for tabletop gaming – although Hendrick’s freely admits that it’s “the world’s longest, least technical and most inconvenient gaming chair.”
Aside from looking extremely comfortable, the gaming chaise comes with some more unique features, including a “fully analogue” speaking horn to let you bellow at those not lucky enough to be in your seat, retractable arms to hold cocktails, concealed compartments to hold games, and “subtle anti-racing stripes”.

“Although we enjoy video games as much as any iconoclastic gin distilled in a tiny seaside village in rural Scotland, it seems to us that current trends in gaming furniture have resulted in chairs lacking in worldly sophistication,” says the Hendrick’s description of the chaise. “We’ve chosen to remedy the situation with our very own gaming chaise, designed to accentuate the pleasures of a range of leisurely diversions, from card playing to chess, backgammon and other board games — not to mention the pursuit of human conversation (over cocktails of course) with all its feints and complexities.”
Sadly, if you’re really into the idea of a comfy but functionally confusing bit of gaming seating, ballots to buy the extremely limited item have now closed. We can only hope that this sparks a revolution in the extremely quiet gaming chaise space. But it probably won’t.
