Palliser Home Theater seats????  

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
One of my local furniture stores just started selling these this weekend. http://www.palliser.com/?action=view..._child_chars=1

They are called the Palliser Regent Series, which come in a full range of pieces. (Including straight and angled wedges) Have you ever heard of this company?

Hi there.

I think that you will find that most people around here aren't very impressed by the Palliser home theater line. I myself just ordered 8 recliners in two rows of four, and am waiting for them to be built. For the price they were about the best that I could find for my application.

I believe that the best thing for you to do is to go and try out a few different manufacturers and see what best suits your needs and budget and not get tied to other peoples opinions.

Ditto MK's thoughts. One thing that Palliser does offer that is kind of cool is a tear sheet with their various pieces with shapes and dimensions. This makes it very easy to plan. IMHO, the chairs were just too bulky and the construction quality was "ok".

I have 3 recliners and 2 of the wedges in my config, and have been really pleased with them so far. Very comfy, and the wedges have an armrest that lifts up like the center console in a car, so you can store your remotes, reading material, whatever. Thumbs up from me.

Palliser is a large Canadian furniture manufacturer. I believe their head offices are in Winnipeg, Manitoba along with (sniff, sniff) the sole remaining Canadian "Kenny Rogers' Roasters" restaurant.

I just ordered six of these puppies ( 2 rows of 3 with arm wedges between). I ordered the Dakota Series. I was extremely pleased with the quality of the Palliser chairs, and I tried every brand I could find. Palliser seemed to be better quality and more sturdy than both Berkline and Lane, which I was both considering until I saw the Palliser. This is only my opinion people. The last time I said that I got attacked. I will try to post pics when mine arrive, but it won't be until May. If you are strongly considering them, give Rose Furniture a call and have them quate you a price. They are in High Point, NC but they deliver anywhere and the prices are great.

I know this is dragging up an old thread, but for those interested, if you type the name of the model you're looking at into the search box, you'll get a link to a product page. There are dimensions and options shown there.

Looks like they just forgot to link from the main page.

I got my Connery's set up recently & I really enjoy them . Good quality and very comfortable not to mention the Aura shakers built in. FYI, I would get all leather. Mine are partial leather and they squeak whenever you move. If they were all leather, they wouldn't.

I did a search for Palliser and could only find this thead.

Where did you find the posts that verify your statement?

I have now tried out the Connery, Penumba and Regent, all by Palliser, and was totally impresed with the comfort of the Regent--cushy yet firm at the same time. I found that the Connery (available with Aura Pro bass shaker installed) was much too rigid/firm for my comfort and the back extends up to 43", quite high for a home theater chair.

With the Penumba, I felt the wooden frame in the small of my back. It may just be too cushy in that my body sinks into it too much.

I wish that I could have tried the Dakota, but its back height is just 39", which I have found is not quite enough to offer me complette head rest.

I am ordering the Regents.

I also sat in LazyBoy theater chairs (similar in feel to Connery but lower back heght) and another brand (can't remember company right now) but it too was the more firm home theater type.

Omnia also makes some nice home ttheater seating that has the comfort of a living room recliner but only one of their models has the chaise foot rest (the Regent, Dakota and Connery all have this) which offer full support to the calves rather than a space between the foot rest extension and the chair. That model is their Napoli buat is only 80" overall width whereas the Regent is 90" offering a bit more seating space.

All of the above models are available in power reclining models. I am ordering a Left Arm Facing, a Right Arm Facing and an Armless chair, all of which bracket together to make a three seat couch without any arm rests, much better for snuggling with a loved one.

I have the Dakota series and love them! Couldn't be happier. Pictures can be seen in "my gallery" above. I just zip tied my own bass shakers to the springs on the underside and they work great!

Hi Mike,

The Dakotas sure do look comfortable. Chair comfort is such an individual thing because we are all different sizes. I, personnally, do not like the more rigid, firm home theater type chairs. I like some cushyness with a full head rest. My back speakerrs are high enough and angled toward the side walls to provide plenty of surround sound (alond with my dipole side surrrounds) so I may not have to worry about chair height as much as I sem to.

But all the Palliser motion chairs seem to have very good build quality. And the price is much more reasonable than some of the better known "name" brands.

I would recommend Palliser tto anyone considering reclining chairs, powered or manual, for their home.

I use Crowson Tactile Transducers which are slippped under the rear feet of the chair or couch. Lots of shake, rattle and roll, literally, as the movements are not just shaking. I can't ever again watch a movie without some kind of shaker involved now.

Palliser makes some good upholstered furniture. It is a medium end Canadian furniture company. They have had a nice leather line up for some time. I have not been able to check out their theater seats yet, but knowing what i do about the company I bet they're nice. Probably equal to or maybe better than the ever popular Berkline.

I will be placing an order for the Eastwood series. Powered recline, all leather and hardwired base shakers.
I've sat in the Metropolitan series and the Eastwood. Eastwood is much better. I will be going through a local furniture store but found this US vendor with great information about the product. They have more information than Palliser.com does.

Just got a set of Dakotas, configured in black leather with right side, wedge, 2 reclining seats in the center (loveseat type) then another wedge, and then the left side chair. Been doing some professional level butt parking the last few days with all the bowl games, and have to say, I am very happy with the purchase. Sorry for digging up the old thread, but wanted to add my $.02
