Anyone have these seats? They have the same profile as the 090's but with a different padding similar to the 45004. I'm strongly considering them and would like others opinions if you have ever sat in them or owned them. Thanks!

Being a Berkline dealer, we have had several inquiries about the 45003, so I dug into it with Berkline last week and was told that these is no model 45003. The new styles are the 45000, 45001, 45004, 45008, 45009, 45010, and 45012. Let me konw if you would like any information on any of these. Thanks, Paul Evans, Leather-Direct

That's strange given that one of the AVS sponsors has them listed on their website. See URL...

Makomachine,

This is 45003 and it has exact dimensions as the 090s. The only difference is in the shape of the back cushion. I sat in all the Berkline recliners. I have 090s for 4 years. If I had to do it again, the 45003 would be my choice...

If you have any more questions, pm me... There are certain things I cannot answer here on the forum, but I can give you some more info off line.

Roman -

Just looking for some other members impressions before I place my order. Sounds like there might not be anyone with these yet. How long have they been out?

The 45003 is an awesome set. It gives you the comfort of the 090, and even borrows some of the ameneties of the 094. Here's a better pic:

What are the amenities on the 45003 that are not on the 090?

Also, is there a price difference (without stating actual prices) between the 45003 and the 090? I just want to know if there is a difference.

The 45003 has storage compartments in the armrests like 094s and aluminum silver cup holder inserts.

No price discussions are allowed, but you know how you can get your answers ...

Is this true? I was looking at getting these chairs, but now I'm kind of concerned.

Is what true?

Are you asking if there is the Berkline 45003 style group?

Yes, there is!

After much online, and in store searching, I decided to order a set of 3 Berkline 45003 black leather grade 4 power recline seats (3) from Roman. He was very helpful, and extremely honest. My seats should be arriving at the end of feb. 07. I will let you all know how they work out.

I ordered 6 45003's with power recline from Roman as well - great customer service but won't be receiving them until end of March by request. I'll update the thread after I receive them.

I have just received my 3 Black 45003's from Roman this week. AWESOME chairs, GREAT service! I am very glad to have seen the posts referencing this model before I ordered the 090's. The small extras like the storage arms and stainless cup holders made a huge difference and I love the chair-backs.

That's great to hear. So you think they are more comfortable than the 090's? I like the concept of the padding compared to the 090's but it's great to hear someone say they love them.

What are the width measurements for the individual chairs? Roman's site shows the 090s specs when you click on the specs for the 45003's (but with the storage arms, I figure the 45003s have to be wider).

caesar1,

That is because these have exact the same dimensions as 090s... I do not have the spec sheet for the 45003, but again it is exactly the same chair with different shape of the back cushion.

Mako- I think that the backs are more comfortable than the 090's based on my trials. I like how the seatback is more plush and props the head up some while fully reclining.

UNC Nick,

Do you have a curved row? From what I understand, you only get the storage compartments IF you get the curved row (i.e. the v-shaped armrests).

Thanks. How do they feel?

I've got a curved row of 3. The storage compartments are only in the "wedge-shaped" arms.

The seats are very comfortable. The back is plush, but still firm if that makes any sense. I'm really enjoying them.

If you have the chance to toss up a few pics for us "dreamers" here, go ahead

I really only have hands-on experience with the curved sets of three, but I think that each of the wedge arms add another inch to the equation, since I get 114" versus the 112" of the 090.

Hope that helps!

I'm considering the 45003's for the next powerbuy (c'mon ROMAN!!), but I need to know if the storage is ONLY in the curved row arms, or do the straight row arms also have storage? I was looking at 2 straight rows of 4, but storage may be a deal breaker. I have also seen a storage unit available that is about double-wide of the regular arms. I may have to resort to that on the front row if I can't get the configuration I want with storage.

Any advice??

Ed

Ed,

Be careful what you wish for - you may get it

The 45003 do not have storage compartments in the straight armrests. The compartments are only available in the wedge arms. The separate consoles will add to the price...

I also am considering the 45003's but can't find anyone around me that sells ANY berklines so I can at least try something similar to it out before I make a purchase. Anyone with the leather or leather/vinyl combo able to elaborate on how good it is? I have 2 small dogs (miniature pinschers) and I don't want them to be able to leave marks on the furniture (they bounce all over the place). Also, how good is it about not absorbing spills or anything? I want to get all black but just curious if it absorbs anything. Thanks.

Roman - quick question - I am going to a trade show in Atlanta in another month or so - we will be driving from the Canadian/Maine border all the way to Georgia and I am wondering if you can arrange for a viewing of the 45003's and the 090's somewhere if I was to "swing in" along the way. Let me know when you have the chance - no rush - thanks !
