One of the more subtle products placed in Bond films are Swan Vesta matches. The brand is mentioned in the Ian Fleming novel You Only Live Twice and we can see Swan Vestas in the movies On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), The Man With The Golden Gun (1975), Moonraker (1979) and Octopussy (1983).

In the movie SkyFall (2012), we can spot an Anglepoise Type 1228 Desk Lamp on the desk of M (Judi Dench) and Bill Tanner (Rory Kinnear) in M's new underground office.

Judi Dench as M has a taste for designer furniture in her office. In The World Is Not Enough (1999), Die Another Day (2002) and Casino Royale (2006), the same Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman can be seen in the back of her office. The Eames chair can also be spotted in You Only Live Twice (1967).

In SkyFall (2012), several Parker pens can be seen on the desk of M (Judi Dench) in her new office and during the public inquiry with the minister.

Thanks to the Christie's Bond at 50 auction in 2012, we know that a David Linley letter knife and letter tray were on M’s desk in Quantum of Solace (2008). The auction sold the letter knife and tray including a prop letter, envelop and a note.

In M's office in the film Quantum of Solace (2008), a Louis Poulsen PH 4/3 table lamp can be spotted. The lamp stands behind M (Judi Dench) in the office filled with Interstuhl chairs and Bene furniture.

On M's desk in SkyFall we can see a Sony ECM-Z60 sophisticated zoom microphone attached to the speaker set, identified here earlier as the JBL On Tour XTB. M (Judi Dench) uses this set to call agents handsfree, while standing behind her desk.

On M's desk in SkyFall, a JBL On Tour XTB speaker can be spotted. The device seems to be placed there as a speaker together with a Sony ECM-Z60 microphone as a conference speakerphone setup.

On the desk of M (played by Judi Dench) in the movie SkyFall we can see a Tolomeo Basculante Tavolo table lamp. This model was designed for Artemide by Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina in 2004.

On M's desk in SkyFall we can spot a small statue of a dog with a british flag. This statue is a Bulldog with Union Jack created by Royal Doulton, an English company producing tableware and collectables since 1815.

In the 2008 movie Quantum of Solace, we see the new ultra modern office of M. M herself is sitting on an Silver Chair 262S, and there are two empty Silver Chair 101S in the room. The room on the other side of the glass wall is furnished by Bene.
