Build Your Custom Theater Chair

Boddy Bala

“I founded Elite HTS because I have a passion for great film experiences. I believe that the comfort you have when watching an incredible performance is just as important as the sound or video quality of your home theater. At Elite, it’s about more than just building a great home theater chair, it’s about giving you the most luxurious experience possible.”

A Little History

Elite HTS was founded nearly 20 years ago by our President and CEO, Bobby Bala. With an established career in film, CG animation, and video game design Bobby saw what was on the market for home theater chairs and knew that he could craft a chair that was far superior in quality, comfort, and design. Our first ever order was built out of an old abandoned barn. Now, nearly two decades later, Elite HTS has grown from those humble beginnings to a state-of-the-art facility in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada that is known for manufacturing some of the world’s most exclusive and customized luxury home cinema seating, shipping them to discerning customers worldwide.

Our theater chairs have been featured in some of the finest VIP cinemas and show-floors in the world, including the Venetian Hotel in Macau, Harrods in London, and the Technicolor Film Services screening rooms in Burbank, California. With this pedigree of clientele, our luxury home cinema seating must be built and engineered to withstand the use of countless daily visitors while still remaining sturdy and comfortable for years to come. With each of our heavy-duty theater chairs weighing in excess of 165lbs (75kg), they are built to last and come with a 20-Year Warranty.

Each of our chairs must also fulfill the criteria of our 4Cs Diamond Standard of Comfort, Craftsmanship, Customization and Customer Service. In addition, before our chairs are shipped they are individually inspected to make sure they match the rigorous standards of our Diamond Elite Certification, a 10-point checklist that ensures every Elite HTS chair exceeds industry standards for build quality, durability, and function. 

Finally, the Elite HTS team is honored to have achieved an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau for twelve consecutive years. We are also DUNS registered and members of CEDIA and the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID).
