Home theater seating isn’t a beanbag chair or an old plaid recliner like your grandad used to have. It’s smooth. It’s leather. And it matches. If you’re going to spend the money to build a theater in your home, you should make sure you have decent seating to go with it. You wouldn’t put old, ratty, threadbare towels in your newly renovated bathroom, would you? We thought not. But what are your choices?
First let’s take a look at Seatcraft. Available in good, better and best — singles or sectional — these chairs come with a cool gel padding and memory foam to give you the softest, most comfortable seat of your life. Cup holders are standard, of course, but you can optimize yours by going with the light-up version — no more groping around in the dark for that bottle of Sam Adams. But what if you prefer a glass of chardonnay? Get the wine glass caddy — a sleek, silver arm that holds onto your libation for you like a silent personal assistant. Other options include neck pillows, tablet holders and ashtrays — oops, we mean “cigar hosts.”
Another popular brand of home theater seating is CinemaTech. Also available in three price points, CinemaTech seating comes in a variety of colors and options. Motorized inclines and steel frames are standard on all models, but the higher-quality choices offer better-grade leather in more color options, wider arm widths and nicer cup holders.
Fortress Seating is the top of the line, offering scores of models and endless configurations. Each model is available in a variety of fabrics and colors, some mix-and-match. You can get recliners, chaises or a unique combination especially suited to your family’s preferences. Fortress also offers a variety of accessories, including those little lights on the sides of the seats to help you find your row. This kind of option is likely popular with high-profile types like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who built a $35,000 home theater in their $20 million mansion in California. Read all about it here.
