4 doubles or two rows of 4 with middle loveseat?
Okay, I'm down to one last selection with my Palliser dealer. I wanted to get 8 chairs, two rows of four. He had an order of 8 seats (4 sets of two chairs- basically center aisle splitting each row) get returned for a different color and he's motivated to offload inventory on hand. Arm rests between all seats. It's not the exact configuration we went in thinking we wanted, but it's a great deal, and I get to deal with a local dealer in case any issues come up down the road vs the online guys, plus I've sat in these seats, I know what I'm getting. Online pricing is about the same anyways, although I will have to pay tax...
We had thought about getting the front row with a middle love seat and then a back row of 4 regular seats. It's about $300 cheaper to go with a middle loveseat since that piece is cheaper without an arm rest- but we would have to order it since he doesn't have one on hand. Considering the overall cost of the chairs it's basically the same. I can get the regular chairs now, If I go with the loveseat option it's a little cheaper but we'd have to wait the standard 8 weeks for those middle seats to be made and then put 2 of the chairs he has now on the ends, and use 4 chairs of his for a straight back row. Plus there's always the chance of lot changes between fabric (Pheonix Antracite, polyurethane leather look alike). We would be using 6 of his chairs plus the new loveseat.
The wife kinda wanted the middle loveseat but she's not demanding it. When it's me and her, great. When it's me and the guys watching football, not as great. I actually think the center aisle may be a better approach so people don't have to climb over each other in the back row as much.
Just curious what the audience thinks. Seems like most folks go for arm rests all the way across.
