Searching trough the forums only lead to older threads with dead links, but I am certain there are still people working out cup holders.

I am searching to do an addition to the otherwise "ordinary" seats I have for the theater room.

Unless I find anything better, I am thinking of going "arcade style"

Certainly there's something more appropriate that exist?

I am eager to hear about it.

Normally use a table when sitting at the couch .. tables next to chairs.. so if you want hand and table free maybe one of these?

A "coffee table"?

that couchcoozy is a great idea. Thanks erichoya!
I was more thinking about something you could snap on the side of the couch somehow, some sort of chairside thin table or something.
I guess I'll have to rely on side tables.

Get this or similar:



Cut a square into the armrest fabric/felt with the diagonal a little less than diameter of cupholder.
Pull out and away edges.

Cut out a circle underneath using a holesaw or similar.

Smoothen edges so they won't cut into fabric.

Slide in cupholder over fabric for that nice factory look.

You should do this if you can clearly feel hard surface below padding. Also it is a risky endeavor
as you could theoretically ruin the sofa. This would be a pink ban grade violation in my home.

Probably a home/auto upholsterer will also do you a good job on this project.

I use an end table or coffee table. Maybe something like this would work for you:

Seriously? The same useless joke twice in the same thread? Come on, you can do better.
