Recommendations For Full Leather Seats

Hi all,

I'm in the market for 3 full leather HT seats for my newly re-constructed basement. Looking at a curved set of three. My research so far has taken me to consider Palliser, Elite, and Jaymar. Although the Palliser's are less expensive to begin with, the prices between the three get a lot closer when full leather is in play. These are the specific models I have been looking at: Palliser Autobahn, Elite C1-M, Jaymar Panther.

Being that this is fairly large investment I'm curious as to the boards opinion of the construction, quality, and durability of the mentioned chairs/brands.

Thanks

I've had clients with Jaymar and Palliser, I'd rate both good with Jaymar better than the Palliser. On another note, Why full leather rather than leather match? I have leather match with in my theater and never missed leather on the surfaces I don't touch.

That's a great point with the leather match. How is the durability on the vinyl portions? Any issues?

Additionally the reason I mentioned the Elite C1-M is because of the sale they are running. You can purchase direct from them for $1950 per chair (advertised on web site). The only caveat is you can't customize them beyond the cup holder color. Full leather and 10 year warranty. The only difference between the C1 and the customs (according to Elite) is that the upholstering is done overseas. The assembly is done in Canada.

The sections of the chair that have vinyl on a leather match chair are the surfaces you don't touch like the backs of the back rest. For that reason wear is not an issue.

I have 4 Palliser all leather seats and LOVE them. Soft. Comfy. Lovely.

Good luck with your choice. Im sure whatever you choose it will be great.

I ordered head rest cushions from HTMarket (all leather) and they are sweet. I mostly use them for added lumbar support and love that you can move them up/down for desired position. Sometimes I use two; one for a headrest and one for back support.

No movie chair is ideal when reclined, for viewing AND neck/back support lol. I'm getting old!

So I ended up going with Palliser Autobahn's in full leather after consultation with wife. I ordered from HT Market who had a great price and seemed to have a good reputation on the board.

Thanks for all the input and thanks to Roman for reaching out.
