Perfect Front-Row Overflow Seating found at Costco? - Page 2

post #31 of 314
Call them with the part number listed here in this thread. I don't recall these being in a "furniture section." Both Costcos near me had them.

If someone could post a picture of these sitting in their HT - both closed and open that would be very nice...
post #33 of 314
I would do that, but I don't have my riser done yet. That would really kind of prevent them from being seen behind my Showtimes!

These chairs are nice nice nice. At the checkout, the two workers said they'd have to take a break and go each grab a chair. I'm so glad I waited and didn't get video-game style seating. Few, if any have mentioned it, but the compartment is a nice perk to hold remotes, magazines, or in my case, my son's Thomas the Tank trains!

I'd highly reccommend checking these out!

My costco has these in stock.
I may have to stop by and look at these tomorrow during lunch.

I just picked up two of these, and they're well worth the money.

Drive a decent sized car to pick them up from Costco. They didn't fit in my trunk, so I had to take them out of the box and stuff them into my back/passenger seats.

Closed, they sit about an inch or two higher than the Berkline 090s, but match pretty well in terms of style.

Open, they're nice comfortable seats even for above-average sized people.

I had a hard time getting four into the back of my expedition, but I managed! I got my riser built (but not carpeted) yesterday, and have a few pics I will try to post later tonight. These are pretty cool!
post #38 of 314
I'm gonna look at these tomorrow probably, but a question....

Open - are these low enough for overflow seating in the front? Will I have any problem seeing over the heads of the people sitting in these things?

They don't look lower than AK rockers in the pics I've seen. I'm still not sure which way I'm leaning. I can get 2 rockers and have some change left over for the price of one of these seats.

Hmmmmmm well after poking around with the tape measure and the above dimensions for the closed "just used for storage" mode as an ottoman I might only be able to fit one of these in my small room off to one of the side walls... maybe a second one up against the front wall but I really would like to keep that area clear.

Adding one would help with storage and add a fourth seat fo me though - which would be nice anyway.

Will check tomorrow or Friday - Costco near me had 16 in stock yesterday.

EDIT:

Ok I picked up one of these today - I havent unpacked it yet - it might have to be wrapped and be a "Santa" gift - lest the wife give me the evil brow for this yet another impulse buy of mine for the HT.

I am really hoping that I can fit 2 of these in my room - I will wait until I see how this one fits in before comitting to a second one. Like a lot of Costco items - I wonder if the stock on these will eventually dry up and no longer be avaliable. Sometimes seems that Costco stuff disappears eventually never to be seen again in the store.

I was very impressed once I saw it in person at Costco - great construction and quite heavy - it is no flimsy seat thats for sure. Storage is a huge bonus! It is quite comfortabe too! Easily would work for a 2 hour movie or more even... if someone had a non-reclining front row seating this could be perfect to put your feet up and double as an extra row of seating when needed.

It does "appear" smaller in person than the dimensions would have you believe. But when you sit in it it feels like a mini theater seat! The only thing that would have made it absolutely perfect is if one of the armrests had a cupholder in it.

The nicest thing about these IMHO that justifies its cost is that when you don't need it as a seat it can sit off to the side and not be intrusive.
Thanks again for finding and posting this find!

Wow... quiet in here today.. Maybe you all are at Costco?

OK - here are a few real life pics. The red seats there are Berkline 088's for those looking for a size reference. I am VERY pleased. Still on the fence about getting a second one as I don't want the room to be too cluttered. The seat bottom is not that much lower than the 088's, so i am not sure how it would work to be directly in front of someone there...









As you can see - its not a small thing, but not overpowering too, especially when folded up against the wall there - leaves plenty enough room to walk by to get to my gear in the back there. If I added a second one - it would have to be "stored" against the opposite wall - closer to the front.

I purchased five of these, I'm using them as my theater seats.

I'm building a twelve inch tall platform for the two seats I'll have in the back row and I'll have three in the front row on a five to six inch platform, I may add christmas lights around the border of platforms somewhat hidden as to have some light as so people will not trip over them as my whole theater room is done in black, walls, ceilings and even the carpet, should work out perfect for my apartment set-up.

They are very comfortable, not as comfortable as recliners but I'm going for the theater look so I'll sacrifice for the full effect.

I love Costco.

Spotted six of these on the floor at the Sterling Va store today.
post #43 of 314
Those seats look great! Wish that my costco had them.

A differrent seat is available at Target. $20. ea. Its a very low rocking chair. Would be great for kids. I sat in it for about 10 minutes (6'3" 240#) and it felt comfortable.

You wouldn't want to leave the target seats out all of the time (red or black color) but, they store in about 3" space. Might shove them under other seats??

I will take photos if someone else doesn't post some
post #44 of 314
I would be interested in seeing a pic of that seat.
post #45 of 314
This chair would probably be best for overflow kids!

Still, it might be interesting

hope for the best - I haven't tried posting photos before

This chair is surprisingly comfortable - about 15 sold since yesterday

Is there anything like this but a bit closer to full size?
post #48 of 314
Correct me if I'm wrong, but this ottoman/seat looks like it's too tall to be overflow seating to go in front of the front row, on the same level, right?

I cannot see this. Anyone else have this problem?

Yep, the uploaded image is a 1x1 pixel GIF -- essentially invisible and not what the author intended.

Well, I just got back from Costco, and now I have two of the "Entertainers" for my HT room. They will be set off to the side until I need extra seeting. Like some have mentioned, I don't think that I would want these directley in front of my main seating area, but, fortunately, I have some extra space on the sides.

In post #46, do you guys not see the Attached Image with filename "rocking chair small.jpg" with a filesize of 24.9KB?

If so, I'll attempt to display it below... hope this helps.

These are cheap alternative for overflow seating. My daughter had 15 of her friends over for a horror flick night last weekend and a couple of these chairs would have really come in handy. Can these chairs be stacked?

These rock (um...not back and forth, rock as in "awesome") - I just picked up 3 of them today from Costco. Had to pony up a $50 membership to do it, so I guess technically they ran me $175+ apiece, but they're perfect for what I needed. My theater is 14' 8" square, and can seat 5 across, but it's too small for a second row of full size seats (especially since I have an older Panny LC75u projector built before they figured out how to eliminate pixel structure on LCDs). These are perfect - I replaced my existing coffee table with two of them side by side (so people sitting on my sofa can put their feet up). Then, for my Superbowl party, I'll have seating for 8 in there when I add the third one (currently sitting there unobtrusively in "Ottoman mode" next to my subwoofer).

For comfort purposes - I'm 6' 2" tall, and about 195 lbs; these seats are comfortable enough to watch a double feature in for me; I just watched that miserable Saints/Bears game in one of them *sigh*. My wife likes them because she's one of those weirdos who doesn't like leather seating, and the seating surfaces on this are padded mesh. My one year old likes them because they're not hard wood like my old cocktail table was. My four year old likes them because he can jump from them to the couch and back without getting yelled at, and he likes playing in the boxes they came in. Bonus - they match my existing theater seating.

i picked one up too, with the plan to pick up 3 more. A lady bought out the store the day before I went to get 'em.
post #57 of 314
I just took mine back. Everytime someone came over I found myself sitting in the back row, and I just decided I wanted something with higher back, and more plush feeling. I ended up getting a black leather couch, overstuffed style. Fits on my riser will. Not alot of room between front row and back, but the couch really lets you just sink in, so there doesn't seem to really be a need for an ottoman even. Also lets ya watch laying down, family room style! Yesterday I found myself gravitating to the back row, foregoing the showtime seats even!

Costco seats are great for what they are, overflow seats, and they look great. Just seemed like I was always sitting back there!

No cup holders?

Well these aren't found at Costco, but they are great for front row seating!!

On a recent trip to Staples I discovered in their Sale Chair Isle these low profile seats. Marked at 79.99 a piece they make for a great front row. No cup holders but there is a place to hold candy/remotes. Heres a quick pic.

Do you have a item number or name for these?
