From the Bottom Up: Home Theater Seating

From the Bottom Up: Home Theater Seating

Back in the fledgling days of home theater, when the term was hardly commonplace and most considered having a big-screen TV the pinnacle of the notion; if you asked most people why they’d put the time, money and effort into watching movies at home, you’d hear about comfort nearly every time. Just a few years ago, going to the movies was an uncomfortable experience; seats were hard and tight together, and it was luck of the draw whether there would be someone in front of you with a hairdo so big you’d miss half the screen.

Back then, home theater seating was superior to the theater experience just by virtue of not being a hard-backed chair; simple couches won out. But today’s theaters are competing hard for our movie-going dollars; to maintain superiority, home theater designers have come up with incredible seating options that can make your viewing experience better than the best seats in the local cinema.

Whether you’re designing a dedicated home theater space with its own style, or a hybrid room that can be used for other purposes when not watching movies, home theater seating today comes in a wide variety of styles and fabrics that can stand out loud and proud — or vanish in the existing decor. No longer simply a big chair,  home theater seats now feature integrated touch-screens, fully-adjustable levels of support to match every imaginable body type – and, of course, intuitive cup holders and snack trays that tuck away when not needed.

From individual recliners, to banks of seats, to feature-rich convertible couch designs with coordinating accessories including light fixtures and curtains, today’s home theater seating gives cine-plex owners a run for their money.
