Hi, what seats are these? Looks like what I would get for my new place. Thanks in advance!
Eames lookalikes
Originals will cost around 8k
Lookalikes around 800-1.5k, depending on quality.
The better ones are quite comfy.
Look at Lush for local ones, or Taobao for cheaper ones.

Thanks matix. And that price killed any hopes of me buying that chair. LOL

Yeah pete, I am contemplating that already when I showed it to my wife. She told me i'm SJB. Shen Jing Bing.

If given a choice, I will get a recliner with a headrest like those in the car so that the rear surround speakers are not blocked.
I find my stressless 3-seater headrest really too big. Like a wall of cushion. Bought it when I was having 5.1

Those with big headrest, do u feel that u cannot hear the rear well?

For good value and comfy Recliner, check out seahorse. Real leather, less than 1k for 3 seater of it recall correctly. But same problem of high headrest blocking and reflecting sound. I also compromised on sound for comfort.. Haha

To seat comfortably, you need at least the 2 arm rest ....

..so 3 seater is a no no to me.

Just sharing some info from my own sofa hunt:

For HT fans, you should get a comfy sofa, which is far more important than just the looks. After all you will be seated there for hours on end.

Avoid chairs / sofas which have too high backs and cover the sides too much as they will block the sounds from the rear speakers.

Remember the chair should allow you to sit with your eyes at the same level as the centre of your screen.

For under 2k, you can get a decent 3 seat sofa.
