G-Plan was going through a bad patch in the early sixties, but the World's Most Comfortable Chair, introduced in 1962, was a huge success. The swivel chair was originally upholstered in black vinyl, but other colours were introduced later.

It makes great feature chair in a lounge. You can find them in a range of different colours.
