I haven't looked at theater seating in a good while.  What is currently everyone's favorite?  Any good budget friendly brands to be aware of?

Octane Seating. easy to work with and easy to spec.

But falls apart in a year.

I no longer spec furniture. I know its a profit area im losing in but to be honest, between the ordering, picking out fabrics, ordering issues, etc etc and then anything worth a damn is out of most peoples budget, its just not worth it anymore. Plus you get the calls when a kid spills something, a light fails, a motor fails etc. I have a job where the client chose to provide Octane seating (fine by me) it didnt even last a year, and the motors were replaced 2 times in once chair and once in two other chairs. The LED lighting has quite working on most of them too.

there are two people.....spend a fortune on seating, or spend $500 a chair. The problem is the fortune people have very specific wants so the constant back and forth is miserable to deal with.

I donít agree. You can get a great chair for $3-4k each. You donít need to spend $7-8k. Or $10k (but Iíll provide it if you want it). No one can possibly think that a $500 theater chair is worth a damn. Iíve always enjoyed doing theater seating. Great options great quality out there. Premier home theater seating. Acoustic innovations Fortress. United Leather. Lots of options

I wouldn't call 3-4k a "budget" chair though. However, the Fortress stuff for 3-4k is pretty awesome and theater-like. I've only done one order for eight seats and they were great at every step.

We've used United Leather for years. Not the cheapest but FAR from most expensive. I recall but one issue in five years (to fix a lose bolt on a foot rest).
