Perfect Front-Row Overflow Seating found at Costco? - Page 10

Thanks,

No estimation needed, here is the actual wideness.

They work perfectly as overflow seating, of course there is always room for improvements, such as, like you mentioned cup holder, reclining and It would be really perfect if it had a head rest ... but even the way they are, they are OK, not the best seat in the house but work perfect as additional seating.

I'm not very handy or have the ingenuity as some of you guys... I don't see how you would incorporate cup holders to these, IMO the arm rest are not wide enough, but just like I say I don't think it can be done, someone here must be saying, sure easy does it!!!

Anyway here are the pictures, you decide.

Thanks, Superleo, for the info!

Maybe, just maybe, I can squeeze a small cup holder in there. If I can I'll post some pics...

Thanks again...

I bought one of the 2 in 1 Gaming Chairs mentioned above from Wal-Mart using their Site to Store shipping service. It took about a week to arrive.

The chair was a dark brown color. I bought several cans of Rustoleum Vinyl Paint and coated the chair a nice flat black. It is very durable, not like paint at all, and doesn't flake or rub off.

I WANTED to add a recessed cup holder in the arm to match my other "real" seating, but the arm just wasn't wide enough. I did add some collapsible can holders attached with 4 screws to each side. These are adjustable and passed the kid test!

The chair can be used either sitting directly on the floor, or you can attach included wooden legs that raise the chair about 6" off the floor. I wanted the extra height, because with the height even an adult can use this chair. But I didn't like the look of the legs, since it didn't match my other chairs...

I cut some 1/4" plywood panels, covered them in black vinyl, and attached them to the chair legs to give it more of a matching look to my Coaster Pavillion theater chairs.

All in all I'm pleased with this "mini chair", and plan on buying a 2nd one. Now to attach some mini shakers to these...!

It looks awesome... and very ingenious on the cup holders.

Did you take the chair apart to paint it? I'm pretty sure of the answer, but still have to ask.

I might do this to mine... It looks very good.

Thanks! Seeing your chairs and reading your posts made me bite the bullet.

I tried to fit a recessed cup holder in that skinny arm, but every time I'd almost make contact with my hole saw I'd get chicken! I just didn't know what the sub structure looked like...

I didn't take the chair apart at all. I just painted it first closed up as an ottoman, then opened it up and painted it as a chair. I gave it several coats.

To be honest, until a few months ago I didn't realize that people use this stuff to paint car seats, boat seats, etc. It turned out much better than I thought it would.

The only problem I have with this cup holder design is that the little half-height soda cans don't work well, and that's the size our little one usually drinks.

I'm serious about adding the small Aura 25 watt shakers! They will be just the right size.

Sorry to post an incomplete information piece, but I was in Reno, NV Costco today (in a hurry) and they have what looked to me like the original thread item back in stock. I didn't get pictures but will if someone else doesn't post first. Salesman said they were listed in inventory as a new item and priced at $139. Looked like very nice quality. Black color.

Target.com appears to have the same chairs for $79.....

Here are some pics of the seat now in Costco. It is 25.2" W x 27" L x 28.7" H

Seems to be very nice quality.

I have been waiting for their return. Unfortunately, the St. Louis stores do not have this product. They couldn't find it in their system. I hope this isn't a regional item...
post #280 of 314
I had originally wanted the Costco chair but could not find them (I even contacted the manufacturer!), but after purchasing the 2 in 1 gaming chair from Walmart, and having it shipped free using their Site to Store program, I am very pleased with my purchase. The chairs only cost $69.99...seem to be well made, relatively comfortable, and serve their intended purpose of "out of the way" overflow seating.

Here's the link...

Target and Sears also offer this same chair...

For those that purchased the original Costco chairs and the subsequent ones from Target, Sear, Bed,Bath and Beyond, etc. I'm just wondering how they're holding up? Are they still structurally sound or getting loose and falling apart? How is the finish doing?

Here in Canada Sears sells the brown vinyl version for $130 and I've been considering it but it's much more expensive the the prices people are quoting from the US.
post #282 of 314
The cost co chairs are great and no issues. My father in law and grandkids like them because they are lower to the ground than HT chairs. I like them for blankets and the kids toy storage.
post #283 of 314
I am looking for two of these chairs, but everyone seems to be out. I see mention above that Sears and BBB carry them, but I cannot find them searching these sites... any clues on the item or search term (tried - gaming, 2 in 1, ottoman, but no luck).

The local Sams, Target, costco, walmart all do not seem to have them either.

Thanks.
post #284 of 314
Could be seasonal stock only. I think I got mine somewhere around early July.

I too am having a very hard time finding these elsewhere from Costco as we do not have one close to where I live. Can anyone else provide links as to where we can buy these online?
post #286 of 314
Not exactly the same, but close...more expensive, though...

Thanks for the link, but Sears canada will not let you ship to USA or USA stores. As I am in Texas, that is a looong drive.
Babies-r-us Canada has the chair in a darker color, but they also will not ship to the US.

Can anyone tell me where I can get one or two of those ottoman/chairs that were at one time sold at costco?
post #289 of 314
I believe they will have them available, but probably not until the summer. It's like going to home depot in the fall/winter and they have many gas/electric fireplaces as you walk in the door. But come spring/summer, not a trace to be found. Doesn't help you out now, but try costco in about 4-5 months. I think it's seasonal with these chairs; I got mine around July and by the end of summer they were gone.
post #290 of 314
Has anyone seen the black Costco ottoman/chair show up again?

How about these Monarch Micro Fibre EZ-Loungers as an alternative? I believe in the US they are sold at Meijers stores. Has anyone sat in one of these? Even though they have no armrests they look more comfortable (much more padded) than your typical gaming chair.

Happy Trails!

I've been looking, can't find any. Post a link if you know where to get these or something very similar. Thanks
post #292 of 314
Costco does one time buys on this stuff. One shipment, and when it is gone, it is gone forever.

Also, it seems that the best time for furniture at Costco is right after Christmas.
post #293 of 314
Has anyone found a folding ottoman theater chair or really low-profile theater chair in-stock anywhere?
post #294 of 314
FINALLY!!!! Costco has them!! Only $70, so I grabbed two



Quality is good for the price. Padding could be better, but it's fine for the kiddos. And there's a fair amount of storage underneath the seat.

I can't find any info about this chair on the web. I did find one guy on ebay selling it for $130 though... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carson-Ottoman-Converts-Chair-/181001872505?pt=US_Ottomans_Footstools_and_Poufs&hash=item2a248d6479 If you look carefully in the photo, his pix are the Costco floor model haha.

Target now carrying something similar @ $99. Saw it today. Has 2.0 speakers built in, but still folds down to ottoman. Storage under seat. Back folds up.

Do you have the name? Would love to get a couple, but not near a Costco.

Thanks.
post #297 of 314
I went to a Costco yesterday in Maplewood, MN. No luck finding these. I checked the item # in Costco's website and it came up blank as well. Does anyone know how to determine if a particular Costco carries and/or stocks these?
post #298 of 314
Cincinnati Oh Costco has them. Just saw them today.
post #299 of 314
Costco in Colchester VT had a couple but they were gone, expecting more on 11/5. I was surprised how comfy and fairly roomy the display model was.
post #300 of 314
Wish you could get them online at Costco. I live about 80 miles from the nearest Costco, would hate drive there and not find them.
