Panasonic EP-MS40 Massage Chair

Used to be that buying a massage chair meant consigning yourself to having a Star Wars-worthy mechanical throne sticking out like a sore thumb in your living area. The Panasonic EP-MS40 Massage Chair ($2,500) puts this idea to bed with a simple, slightly-retro design that will mercifully blend in to plenty of decors without looking like there's a cyborg trapped on the inside, while offering up every bit of the neck-, back-, and leg-pleasing massage action of its Terminator-like cousins.
