JK Rowling’s chair sells for £278,000


The chair that JK Rowling used while writing the first two Harry Potter books has sold for £278,000 at auction in New York, reports The Guardian. She penned Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets while sitting on the chair. The 1930s chair was one of four mismatched chairs given to the then little-known writer for her council flat in Edinburgh. Let’s just say JK Rowling is no longer living in a council flat or acquiring secondhand furniture.
