Tech Tuesday – Top Home Cinema Seating to suit every budget
This Tuesday I want to talk about what you park your bottom on for the duration of a film, here is FRC’s Top Home Cinema Seating
Home Cinema Seating is one of those parts of home entertainment that often gets over looked. Not as bad as the cables, but it still gets missed off the budget.
There is little point in spending all of your hard-earned cash on your Dream system if you have to sit cross-legged on a hard wood floor to watch a film.
What you want is something that can hold your bum adequately for up to 3-4 hours with out the dreaded NUMB BUM syndrome. We tolerate that in the Cinema, but at home we want the ultimate comfort. The cushier the seats the better.
OK, you might already have a three-piece suite that is comfy, but wouldn’t it be nice to have some dedicated Home Cinema Seating? Here are our pick of seats you can buy, some cheap as chips, some ridiculously priced, only suited for Footballers.
La-Z-Boy Cool Chair – £1000
I know it is almost a cliché but I couldn’t do an article about Home Cinema seating without mentioning the Daddy of chairs. It has massagers, super soft padding, a FRIDGE, and even a connection for a phone just so you can ring the wife to get your dinner on the stove!!
FATboy – £150
Of course if you are a vegetarian, or just do not fancy a bit of skin vs cow action there are alternatives out there. The FATBOY is a huge man-sized bean bag that can be shaped in many different positions, so you can either slouch back or lie horizontally while you watch the latest blockbuster.
Premier Seats – FROM £1200
Now we are talking. Drinkstuff have these bad boys, they come in red or black suede, they have fridges and back massagers installed. You can get them in singles or in rows of up to five. Ranging from £1200 to £5000 with these installed your guests will really know you mean business.
X-Rocker Deluxe – £400
Just to show we haven’t gone seat mad, here is something that is verging on affordable, but still keeping the high-end features. I soft leather-covered recliner has underarm storage and a 3 channel sound system which includes stereo speakers and a SUB under your bottom. Pretty good for the price huh?
And for the Home Cinema Geek that MUST have everything….
Ovei – £50,000
OK, OK, I know most of us haven’t got £50,000 to blow on anything let alone a home cinema seat. But let us imagine we are a poor over payed sports personality, with a fifty grand wedge burning a hole in our pocket. Then what we need is the Ovei. It is a fully enclosed home entertainment pod, catering for any of your needs, be it relaxing with a film, listening to music or gaming with 13 yr olds from Kansas, it can do it. Engineered by McLaren and designed by Lee McCormack each capsule is completely bespoke and tailored to the buyers personal taste.
I am so gonna get one…..OK I won’t…
