Some more updates,

The sound proof doors have been painted.



The ceiling has also been painted, in flat black of coarse.



And the wood trim has been stained and is waiting to dry.

Is anything else being mounted to that ceiling for acoustics?

The fish tank is pretty amazing. Do you have a pic of the whole tank? The theater is looking great.

Hey - looks like you have your own Sushi bar in the living room

Great theater too!

Yes it is fresh water. I like salt water and have had a tank with live coral, but the time to keep the water conditions correct is just too long, I just don't have a lot of free time as it is. If you just want to keep salt water fish that is much easier, but I prefer coral tanks.

Does anyone know what home theater seats have low cushion heights? No matter where I look I can't find any info on any of the berkline range. Palliser list their heights, but I am looking for a seat that will be about 18"-20" from the ground to the top of the cushion.

Any help would be appreciated.

My Berk's (12000 I think) have seat cushions about 18" high (I measured 19" uncompressed).

I am all fine for custom chairs, but not from here in Japan. I will end up having to pay about $5K a chair. Sure they will be good chairs, but when you have a 3 year old and 6 year old that will spill drinks on them ect, I am not willing to pay that.

If there was someone from overseas who could make a custom chair and ship it to me, that would be the better way to go. Do you know any custom chair designer/builders?

I was looking these two chairs b/c when placed in a curved arrangement they have the lowest width. They have to fit in betwwen the two columns with enough room to walk by.
The Magnolia,


And the Berkline 45088 The Premier,


Problem is the berklines back rest is very short and I don't like the 23" cushion height on the magnolias.

I think I am going to go with three seats instead of four. Anyone know some seats with low cushion heights regardless of width?

Fortress Seating.
post #137 of 602
Salamador Designs makes the Matteo A nice contemorary design with a 17" Seat height. (shortest I've seen) and they make an Ottoman thats a hidden jump seat complete with Cup holder.. Kinda cool for extra seating when needed, or maybe just the thing for the kids.
post #138 of 602
The Fortress Seating will make you a chair any dimensions you like.

Seatcraft Rialto line has front row seats which is very low, don't even have foot rest, just stretch your legs on floor, then the standard seats, and back row seats which have higher cushion height, with this line, you don't even need riser as they claimed, but I am not sure how comfortable is the the front row seats, just look awkward from their pictures:

Well not much done that can be seen. Most of the frames for the acoustic panels were completed and all that is left is wrapping them is fabric.

Some pics of the wood going in around the sound proof doors and the false door way.
The false door way.


The frame around the door finnished.




Some more bits and pieces going in around the other door.

Peter, does it have to be someone close? I will have to import my chairs, like with with just about anything else. I know it means more expense, but if the result is worth it, why not I say.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned it, but your construction crew must have a major neatness fetish. I don't ever think I've ever seen a work site as clean day to day... If it wasn't for the fact that there is obvious progress I'd have to say no one actually works in that room.

LOL, and have to pull some of the stuff packed up nice and neatly to get pics, so you are not seeing the true neatness after each day, b/c I am the one making the mess. One thing about Japanese construction is their attention to detail, not only with their work, but also with their tidiness.

Send them to my house I have a messy basement that they can finish for me...

Seriously though they must spend what 1 hour cleaning up each day?

LOL, I will make the arrangments!

I would say they do spend a bit of time on the cleaning, but they won't go home until its done. I have said many times just to leave it when they are really late , but they still do it regardless.

Just curious what part of Japan you live in?

Couple of co-workers are travelling to Tokyo later this week.

Hi Peter.....not to clog up this splendid thread, I dont have anyone for specifically "HT" furniture, but I can recommend an upholster who does custom work and a decorator that has people who can do custom work. I suspect the difference in cost between Procella and Seaton would be made to look like pocket change however...by comparison...I had planned on DIY'ing ours, but them I have the skill to do that....recliners are another kettle of fish.

I like the IMG recliners - depends on what sort of look you're after....I've spent many 100s of hours scouring the net for options and come up with little. I'll see what I can dig up for you

Elill, discussion is very welcome. I might just learn something from it myself.
