More than just a place to sit

I can think of a couple sitcoms where a character had his own very special chair that was HIS and no one else's. When I was a kid growing up in the 70's we watched All In The Family. Archie Bunker did NOT want anyone else to sit in his chair. It was his own private territory, and no one else was allowed to inhabit it.
Then, in the 90's, I watched Frasier. Frasier's dad, Martin Crane, also had his very own chair. He wasn't a compete jerk about it like Archie was, but it was clear that the chair was very important to him. Frasier thought it was an eyesore, but he loved his dad enough to allow the chair to be kept in his apartment when Martin moved in with him.
So, if I was in a sitcom, what kind of chair would I want for myself?
It would have to be comfy, of course, and it would have to be unique.
Here's one which might just fit the bill. Listen to the name: it's the Human Touch HT 7450 Zero Gravity Massage Chair. Sounds like it should be on the bridge of the Starship Enterprise. I love it.
In fact, let's just have my sitcom be a sci-fi story. We'll be zipping through space, and a bunch of angry aliens will be shooting at us because we used up the last of the toilet paper at interstellar rest stop #42009.54. I won't care, though, because I will be enjoying all the massaging action of my special chair.
Archie Bunker, eat your heart out.

I just saw a similar chair, except it's for sexual escapades, and it's 100% washable. It has built in stirrupy things.
So Archie Bunker can eat Edith out.
