The best home theater seating is shown here from a select group of brands like Octane Seating, Palliser, and Fortress amongst a few others. Meticulous attention to detail and quality is required for the seating that you see in this category, and our selection process is based on years of experience and knowledge selling these theater chairs.
Some of the key features that make a truly outstanding theater seat are the type of frame used and how that frame is constructed. Are solid woods used or engineered woods vs particle board? Some top brands will use an all-steel frame. How do we grade the quality of the leather and where is that leather sourced from. Leather quality is based on numerous important variables, and it takes years of experience to fully understand what great upholstery will look like and how it will endure after years of everyday use.
One simple method to identify the best theater seating for your home is to look at the manufacturer’s warranty. Does that warranty cover all important components of the seating like the frame, upholstery, and the electronics? How long is the theater furniture warranted for? These are all important signs of quality and confidence in the end product. If a brand, for instance, is willing to warrant components for up to 5 years, that in the furniture world is an outlier and stands as a testament to the brand's belief in its products. Most furniture is warranted for one year, but some better brands will extend that warranty to as much as five years and lifetime on the frames.
