Perfect Staging ... for Game of Thrones Fans

Staging an empty listing is about giving prospective buyers a skeletal outline of how a home might look to make it easier to envision themselves and their possessions in it. But fans of HBO's wildly popular "Game of Thrones" series might take "skeletal" to a new level if a home is staged — or furnished — with a new chair.

The "Gold Skull Armchair" from French design company Harow offers a structure of reinforced fiberglass over steel, with 24-karat gold around the sides and back forming a stylized skull and "luxury black velvet" for the lucky buyer to sit on and curl up in.

Harow says the chair is "entirely handmade and handcrafted in Paris" and subtitles its creation "Artistic Furniture Built for Comfort & World Domination." The price tag on the chair is $500,000 — but if it helps to sell a few homes to power-mad tyrants or their fans, is money an object?
