I missed out on the seats Kmart / Sears had but I need to order seats now (or soon). What are the best budget seats out there now ( powered or non powered is ok). I need to have them in groups of 2 or even a love seat setup would be ok but price is the main concern. Thanks!

Savageone79,
I'm not sure exactly what your budget is, but check out the Coaster Pavillion and the Albany 8630. The Albany 8630 is an incredible chair made in the USA for the price- larger scale and very comfortable. The Coaster Pavillion has been out for a while and features a manual ratchet-style adjustable headrest. Good luck in your shopping.

IMO if your budget is sub 400 per chair then I would do the following - in order

1). Call Ken, Roman for sales and close outs (possibly Berkline)
2). Check eBay for new seats but research the sellers before buying ( Eros, seatcraft brands are sub 300 each )
3) consider used (CL & eBay )


You may sacrifice quality and comfort with options 2 and 3.....

I personally like these but they come with only 30 day warranty : http://www.interiorexpress.com/home-...-row-of-2.html

Looking at some of the Seatcraft stuff on ebay is mighty tempting too. I only need 2 seats and my budget is < $350 per seat.

Thanks for the feedback. I was needing to stay in the 300-400 a chair range or $1200-$1500 for the set of 4.

On eBay I've seen rows of 4 of the Seatcraft EROS going for around 1000. From what I've read, they seem to be a decent chair. Naturally made in China, but not bad for the price

The Interior Express chairs are good for the money. They are basically Coaster clones. They have a 30 day warranty whereas the Coasters have a one year warranty. The price difference is minimal between the two. There is much more feedback available on this forum in regards to the Coasters. The IE chairs are very similar but you will find less feedback on these.

Can some one post any thoughts on budget seating they bought or own? I need to buy soon and don't want to get the wrong seats!

Although, Im not home. Purchased some from HT Outlet on ebay. They had some Seatcraft Majestic , that they were discontinuing. Got three rows of 4 , all for about $3000. Although I haven't sat in them yet , the wife said they were good and comfy. I'm not a big fan of mushy or real firm seating, and she said it was just right . And for the price I couldn't complain

For those still looking for budget seating, Interior Express is giving 10% off this weekend if you use the coupon code "SPRING". So tempting, but my room isn't close to needing furniture yet....

Just ordered some from 4Seating. Hopefully it all works out. They are having an 8% off sale right now as well so saved a little extra money!

Looks like a good choice - how did it work out for you? What options did you get?

And how was the overall experience with 4seating.com? I've seen both good and bad things on here...

I am trying to decide between the Albany 8630 with power or the Klaussner Lunar with power. The Lunar is listed as top grain leather and the Albany 8630 is bonded leather. The Albany is US made and the Lunar is from China. The Albany is 3.5" longer 69.5" vs 66" when reclined. The Lunar is about $300 less.
