Anybody using recliner to watch movies at home?
« on: February 01, 2018, 14:32 »
I'm thinking of buying a recliner chair like Stressless for a more comfortable position to watch HT and listen to music. Anyone using recliner in the living room? Do you place it center facing the TV? Doesn't that look weird since the sofa is there? Put the sofa to the side and only a single recliner in the front of the TV also looks weird.

No one else in the house watches TV except me, so functionally speaking it is fine. But just looks weird for house decor.

In order not to look weird, put two or more recliners in front of TV :)

Then it will look like a posh home theatre!

Buy reclining Sofas and save space when not in use. Some brands like HTL and kingsliving allow even the centre seat to be reclined.

I don't know if it would fit in with your room, but you could consider those Ikea POÄNG chairs. The advantage is that they're very light and easy to move around if necessary. I find them very comfortable (although a padded arm-rest would be nice) and for me the headrest angle is just right for watching movies and listening to music.

King Living's King Cloud III is the best looking recliner in my opinion.

many who patrol this forum have spent a lot more on AV equipment, perhaps this cost can be justified since it's a much larger part of the body that you will be pampering with this...

do agree with what you said, esp those that bought 30k sony projector or processor, i don't see why not having this sweet recliners to bump up your theatre experience.

I’m looking at the Stressless range for my HT too. Thinking of 3 seats for the first row and maybe 3 or 4 seats for the second row. I find them very comfortable although pricey. Too bad they don’t seem to come with a built-in leg rest though.

Wondering if anyone has any recommendations for comparable range for recliners?

Also thinking about buying the stressless chairs/sofa. The current sofa is giving me backaches (if sat too low), and neck aches (if sat high). Saw many nice HT sofas on Google, but none of them from Singapore.

GV gold class seats would be nice!

Any contacts or good recommendations for seats available in Singapore?

I went to htl and am very pleased with a recliner sofa. They do have individual recliners too.  Prefer the look using it for about 2years with no problems but i akso use a cushion to prop up the back
