The Changing Form of Home Theater Seating

The hJaymar sofa seating with chaise in gray at Custom Audio Video's showroomome theaters of days gone by often sported cushioned leather seats custom made from fine leathers and including comfortable reline and headrests designed to work well in a dedicated television room or multi-row home theater. While this classic form is still sometimes sought after, many more options and styles are available that will help a room get beyond that traditional home theater look.

Today’s combinations of styles and configurations from individual seats, sofas, and chaise sectionals can bring a more comfortable and casual feel to a room where one might retreat from the world to binge some favorite shows. With both predesigned and custom designed options, interior designers and homeowners can have carte blanche finding the perfect seat to match a room’s layout and décor.


Why Consider Seating from an AV Specialty Manufacturer?

Build quality is a combination of experienced design, quality materials, and knowledgeable assembly. However, manufacturers that make seating specifically for home theaters and media rooms pay attention to specific factors that support the best experience possible when watching beloved movies and television shows.


A few such details include:

  • Proper headrest design to not block audio from surround sound speakers,
  • Cupholders and remote-control storage to keep items tidy.
  • The right levels of cushion and recline designed to make the seat comfortable for a two-hour movie but not a place for a nap.
