It's been a while since I was last looking at HT seating and now I find out the Berkline is gone. Crap.

Anyway, so I'm looking at what is a good alternative to Berkline and the specific model I was looking at.

I am looking for 2 rows of 4 seats with a relatively high back (I'm 6'4") and affordable (all for around $5k).

The last round, I zeroed in on the Berkline 45187 ( Beyond the look and feel, I liked the high back (44.5").

I'm still seeing the 45187 for sale online, but Berkline's bankruptcy is a non-starter.

So, any suggestions?

Thanks, much!

45187 is a domestic group, and unless someone stocked them (I really doubt that they have them) they are not available any longer. The imported version of that was Berklien Reno 12003. Actually it was a version of the 45094 - same chair but with the tray and storage compartment.

For your budget there are better alternatives out there, thought.

If you liked the 45187 you will most likely like the following models:

Lane 103- Lane actually is making what was the Berkline 12003 in the same factory. It's the same chair as the 12003, just now called the Lane 103 with the Lane brand name and warranty.

Lane 222- This is the Lane 103 but made in the US in Lane's factory and with LED Cup Holders.

RowOne Plaza- Basically the same chair again but a little bit of a step up in quality from the Lane 103. Available in both bonded leather and leather match.
