    What kind of seats do you have in your home theater? I am in the process of finishing my basement, with a dedicated area for home theater being set aside. I will have 2 rows of seats, with the second row elevated about 6" off the ground. I plan to get reclining home theater seats and am interested in knowing what type of seats everyone here has.

    If you have any pictures, that would be appreciated as well.

    I just picked up the Lane Hopkins and love them. Very well built and comfortable. You can place them against the wall and still recline if that is a consideration. I have a loveseat in the center and a seat on each side.

    I ordered 8 of the La Z Boy Matinee seats. Will arrive end of January (hope I am finished construction!). The layout is a love seat in the middle flanked by a single seat on each end angled in.

    The site is http://www.lazboy.com/ourfurniture/c...e_theater.aspx

    Bill,
    I looked at the Berklines and they were about half price compared to the Lanes atleast here locally and I didn't even factor in the price that I heard I could get from AVS(AVSCIENCE.com). The Lay Z Boys were even more expensive so I ruled them out.

    Personally I preferred the Berklines but it's all a matter of taste.

    I was pretty much sold on them until I decided to go with a typical couch/Conversation piece as they called it since I don't have a dedicated room. If I had one, I'd bought the Berklines w/o blinking. They were around $450 a piece in leather when I inquired a while back.

    I haven't decided on a manufacturer, but I am currently planning 2 chaises with a single recliner in the middle of them in the front row with 3 recliners in the second row.

    I also have 8 Lazboys. Here in Illinois they can be purchased for $629 each for the microfiber which has the feel of suede. Everyone who has been to our theater raves about how great they look and how comfortable they are.

    For anyone living in Texas, I bought my HT seating at Infinity Leather:

    The one's I bought, ended up costing about $650.00 per seat. They can be seen on my Web Site.

    Not sure what your budget for seating is but I just order 2 rows of the black and purple seats from this site.

    4seating.com

    Very good pricing plus FREE buttshakers per seat.
