The 4 C’s - Qualities a true theater chair should possess
♦ CONCIERGE SERVICE
Our home theater seating uses only the best cushioning foam that is manufactured with maximum resilience technology for hours of comfort and support. The foam is high in density and supportive, yet still soft and very comfortable at the same time. High quality flex webbing is used to support the foam instead of traditional springs, so no need to worry about old squeaky springs after a few years. Ergonomic, Chiropractic endorsed lumbar support eliminates virtually all lower back pressure build up.
Additional Features Include:
– A precisely fine-tuned lumbar and upper back support system
– A unique dual cushion system that provides equal weight distribution for the thighs and buttocks
– Premium, high quality foam that is not too firm, or too soft
– An optional adjustable headrest that fits perfectly in the nape of the neck
– Choice of soft, medium or firm cushion options.
“The low back cushion has the optimal shape and angle to maintain the ideal lordosis (curve) of the lumbar spine….. In conjunction with the dual cushion system, the overall effect is to allow for a more relaxed body position giving maximum comfort and thus longer endurance while sitting.”

Whether our client is a famous celebrity, professional athlete, or a home theater aficionado, we must adhere to the highest levels of quality, customer service and confidentiality.
We will be the first to admit we may over-engineer our product, and our construction methods may be a bit overkill. However, this strategy gives us the peace of mind that we will most likely not have to service any theater recliner once it leaves our facility.
In the rare case of a repair or replacement, our unique modular design allows any part of our theater chair to be detached and taken apart in minutes with a few simple tools. For example, our German engineered recliner motor can easily slide out of its cradle and be replaced with a new motor within minutes.
Our knowledgeable team of Project Managers are always just a phone call or email away, and we strive to provide quick resolutions to any issues that may arise.
Our unique 3D layout design service is a complimentary service for trade professionals. It allows our clients to pre-visualize their theater room design and media room seating from multiple angles. In addition, platform dimensions, aisle depths and optimum number of seats per row can be planned precisely.
Simply fax or email us a rough sketch of your room with measurements. We can usually provide a detailed 3d rendering within 48 hours. Visit our Layout Ideas page for layout solutions and inspiration.
The overall weight of a home theater chair can provide many clues as to its construction and quality. Entry level and mid-range seating typically weigh only 75 to 100 lbs per seat. Many times, this can mean the chair has been constructed poorly using “thin wall” wood construction and a lightweight, rickety recliner mechanism.
Elite home theater seats are the heaviest in the industry weighing in at an average weight of 170lbs (77KG) per chair. This weight is accounted for by our 3/4” thick, fortress wall framing construction, and our heavy duty, “thick and chunky” industrial grade recliner mechanism which comes with a 20 Year Warranty.
Low quality foam can start to lose form and support in as little as 3 months. It is very important for any type of home theater furniture to use premium quality cushion foam that is high in density and supportive yet still soft and comfortable. Elite HTS offers soft, medium and firm foam options. More than 80% of clients choose our standard medium foam.
Many of us have had to endure an uncomfortable experience at our local Cineplex while constantly shifting and adjusting to relieve the build up of pressure in the lower back and neck. This negative experience prevents you from escaping into the world that you are watching on the screen. A true theater seat provides excellent ergonomic support and is specifically designed and engineered for hours of home theater viewing. A true theater seat provides ESCAPISM.
We collaborated with renowned Chiropractor Dr. Grant O’Neill to create a theater recliner that provides optimal ergonomic support and comfort while still staying soft and “cushy”.After a lot of precise tweaking and adjustments of various foam types,placement and angles, the final creation is what we feel is the most comfortable theater chair available.
A good quality recliner mechanism can be spotted by having thick steel brackets, reinforced steel bracing, and a smooth, silky reclining motion. A poorly designed mechanism on the other hand will have thin, weak brackets and a rickety reclining motion.
Also, a manually operated mechanism such as a lever design for example, will only have limited recline positions. A motorized home theater recliner however, allows the user to recline the seat to a fraction of a degree thus offering much more freedom and control. Motorized power recline comes standard with all Elite HTS seating.
One of the most common flaws of any type of home theater recliner is a poorly designed frame. This can be the difference between a recliner lasting 2 years or 50 years. The main problems associated with a poor frame design are shaky/flimsy arms, excessive squeakiness and accelerated breakdown.
Usually the main cause of this is the use of low quality cheap materials such as rejected plywood or the use of wood that is simply not strong enough or thick enough. Also, if just simple nails are used to build the frame,over time they can become loose from the constant shifting and bending of the wood frame.
It is highly recommended to use a combination of fitted joints, screws and glue to construct a strong frame. Lastly the arms of a recliner should be reinforced at the highest point possible. This prevents the arms from shaking and moving. If an arm is reinforced near its base, then it will most probably be prone to cracking and breaking at the joint which in turn will cause shaky/flimsy arms over time.
We provide complimentary fabric and leather samples so that you can experience and feel the buttery soft quality of our materials first hand.
Whether purchasing a theater chair in top grain, Italian Valentino Leather, or our revolutionary Silk Leather material fromJapan, you can be assured that only the highest grade materials are used.
It is important to be wary of thin leather products which can easily tear and vinyl match theater chairs which claim to be 100% leather.

What do I need to consider for my home theater setup?
If you don’t have the right seating, then it won’t matter how big your TV or projector screen is. Being uncomfortable while trying to watch a movie, or not being able to see the screen properly, can really impact your enjoyment. So make sure you take into consideration these aspects of your home theater setup when you begin searching for home theater seating.
How much room do you need for home theater seats?
As we can custom-design home theater chairs for you, there is no limit on the size of your room. However, an ideal home theater room will be no smaller than 6 meters long and 4.5 meters wide.
What is the best shape for home theater seating?
Depending on the size of your room, you could choose seating that faces directly forward or curves around slightly. If you’re not sure which style of seating you need, you can get in touch with our helpful, knowledgeable team.
How high should the second row of seats be in my home theater?
If you plan on having a second row of seating in your home theater, then you should plan to have the second row of seats elevated by at least 30 centimeters above the first row. However, this will also be affected by how high your TV screen is elevated from the floor.
