The United States' Largest Chair: Anniston, Ala.

The World's Largest Chair was created as an advertisement for Miller's Office Furniture in Anniston, Alabama.

Publications International, Ltd.

Laying claim to the largest chair in the United States has been a back and forth affair over the years, starting with a 12-foot-tall Mission style chair built in Massachusetts in 1905. Contenders over the years came from Tennessee, North Carolina and Vermont, before settling on a three-story plus armchair that serves as an advertisement for Miller's Office Furniture in downtown Anniston, Ala. This 33-foot chair was built in the 1980s and is said to trump numerous other big chairs scattered across the planet. This actual chair itself is formidable, with 10 tons of steel behind its construction. A chair in Italy stands at the world's tallest at 60 feet; just don't tell the fine people of Anniston.
