Tables are pretty cheap but serve the purpose. Stools come with it and they did not last long at all. Replaced with some better, heavier duty backed stools. Both are linked below:

Displays are like 100% cotton t-shirts. Always buy a size larger than you think you'll need, as they tend to shrink over time.

Thanks to the AVS Forum community for a great thread with tons of much needed guidance!
Thanks for the order we appreciate the business. Happy NY.

Yes it has about a 45 inch back height so it is good for tall people.

I can take photo of both of us at some point and email you. It has controls on top using the new style cupholder with hard buttons. Take a look at that on our site, I would say it would be durable for pets even in leather. How are the berklines holding up? are they in leather?

Which would be the firmest with good lumbar support in a straight configuration?

If you go straight our Devonshire has two layers of foam so it's got a very firm seat base as you got two layers of foam. It's also built like a M1 abrams tank, very sturdy seat and it has the stainless steel tray tables.

The other seat I suggested is Sheffield. I would also look at Belmont as an option that has a firm seat it is spacesaver like the 088 seat you have.

Thank you Alan,

The Devonshire would be just a little too tight for the spot.

You can do 4 1 arm seats so all seat controls will be on the top of cupholder in any style, you would order 5306 2 seats and 5206 2 seats, then you can make a center loveseat row that way so you get all controls on top.

yes it will work fine for somebody your size high back seat with a 25 inch wide seat, you also might consider Southampton and Hamilton seats. yes two seats come with 2 tray tables.

HT Design Clarks probably be in our warehouse by Friday, they on the way should land here by Jan 15th for delivery to our warehouse by end of week. We have sold about 60% of our initial shipment out already, thanks to those who pre order. We running low on straight rows already, still have a good amount of curved rows available. Next shipment not till end of March. If interested in getting soon best to order this week especially straight rows as we are running low.

Would anyone happen to have experience sitting on a Seatcraft Diamante and HT Hamilton/Sheffield? I'm torn between these seats. They are relatively the same price and there's no way for me to experience sitting on them to make decision. Since this a HT thread, I'm expecting bias...haha!

We use all top quality build components in our seats including leggett & platt recline mechs, okin motors german engineered and pocketed seat coils. We also have great control system on top of cupholder in case of sheffield a newer control with buttons right there for headrest, led, recline and usb. I doubt anybody has sit in both you compare as we are in Chicago and the other seat out in California so probably nobody able to sit in both.

I would say with out of doubt are seats are built better and we will provide better support pre and post sale. In case of Hamilton is very unique seat and cradles your lower body, probably one of the most picked by showroom local customers based on comfort with this feature.

Happy with my purchase of a number of Pembroke seats to replace some older seats. I've found them firm and supportive, yet comfortable, and chose the Pembroke model due to the chair width as they more closely matched the width of my original seats. I like the power push-button controls for the headrest and the recline, but found that the LEDs on the cup holder controls were way too bright in my light-controlled room. In a non-light controlled room, I am sure that they would be less distracting, but in a dark room, the LEDs glowing on the adjacent chairs is akin to people sitting next to you using the phones when watching a movie (out of my peripheral they are distracting to me). Also, the LEDs on the controls are so bright that a bottle of water in the cup holder seems to "glow" from the ambient light put out by the LEDs (even with the cup holder light switch off).

I looked into several solutions to address the bright LEDs that didn't work as well as expected:
- using LightDims on the cup holder (works, but not the most elegant looking solution as they look like sticking tape over the surface)
- designing a 3d printed cover to cover the controls (works, but have to remove it to adjust the seats)
- installing a switch in the cup holder to power off the LEDs/controller (no room to mount a switch in the cup assembly)

I ended up pulling the cup holder assembly apart and realized that I could use the smallest circle LightDims and place them directly onto the LEDs on the seat control circuit board. The LightDim covers claim to reduce the light level 50-80%. With the covers in place and the control reassembled, I found that the lower light level was more than satisfactory and didn't distract while watching a movie (both for the controls and for having an item in the cup holder). Full operation of the seat controls was not impaired at all with the LightDim covers in place.

In the first attached in-progress picture, you can see the control PCB with LightDims installed on the top 3 controls, versus the button 2 controls with no LightDims. The picture doesn't really do the difference justice, but might give an idea as what the expected results are. I did install the LightDims on all of the LEDs, and think the results are very good. I also think that having the LightDims inside the control assembly provides a more finished looking solution.

Edit: I added two additional pictures. One shows the cup holder with a water bottle in place (and the glow from the LEDs), with no LightDims installed. The second picture shows a water bottle in the cup holder, but with the LightDims installed on the LEDs on the PCB. This helps to show the before/after difference.

From a seat design perspective, I saw that Raffel Systems (the manufacturer of the cup holder control) has a cup holder model that has an integrated timer to control the LED lights (assume they turn off after a period of inactivity?). Having them integrate a timer to the control used in the Pembroke that would turn off the LEDs automatically would be a great solution to address the LED light output...

Thanks much for the info. How difficult is it to remove the cupholder assembly? I ordered some LightDims and want to try your method.

It was relatively easy, but you have to be patient. Oh, probably goes without saying that this might affect your warranty...

Here are the rough steps with pictures attached (assume “carefully” and “patiently” is used for each step... ):
- disconnect power to the chair
- remove the rubber cup holder lining (it’s not glued or attached, but just snug fit)
- remove the screws holding the cup holder to the chair frame
- pull up the cup holder. Note that you may need to give the attached wires some slack from inside the chair
- remove the small screws from under the cup holder rim
- clip the zip tie holding the bottom of the wire package
- very carefully “break” the glue holding the top part of the wire package to the cup holder assembly. This is probably where you need to be most patient. Too much force could potentially pull the wires from the touch circuit board and render the panel useless - I did not have any issues here, but was careful with it.
- remove the glue from around the top of the wire package (the glue is hardened, so I used some pliers to break it up)
- remove the three small screws holding the cover to the touch circuit board (second to last picture), and remove the touch circuit board - the touch circuit board is where you apply the light dims (last picture)
- apply the light dims (see last picture). If you’re not sure where the leds are, you can reconnect the chair to power - just be careful of handling the touch circuit board (the voltage is low, but don’t want to short circuit the board).

After applying the light dims, I reattached power to confirm that the light dims were over the leds correctly. Be sure to use the smallest light dims to avoid interfering with the touch circuit.

To reassemble, reverse the above steps:
- reassemble the touch circuit board and cover. Don’t over tighten.
- reconnect power and test that the cup holder controls work correctly. If the controls don’t work, remove the touch circuit board cover and make sure the light dims are installed correctly.

- I zip-tied the bottom of the cable package (as it originally was), and taped the wire to the cup holder (instead of gluing)
- reattach the screws under the cup holder rim. Don’t over tighten.

- line up the cup holder over the screw holes in the plywood chair frame and screw the cup holder down
- reinsert the cup holder liner

The steps may seem difficult, but after doing the first one, I was able to complete the other cup holders in about 15 minutes each.

I am still pleased enough with the light dims in my room, and still like the chairs too.

Hope this helps!

The footrest does go up first then the back will go back slightly, so you can have any position recline. The back will move slightly with footrest up, but the seat only has 1 motor. If you wanted footrest totally independent from back you would need 2 motors in the seat which we don't have.

You can watch some of our videos on site to see how it works.

Alan

- pull up the cup holder. Note that you may need to give the attached wires some slack from inside the chair
- remove the small screws from under the cup holder rim
- clip the zip tie holding the bottom of the wire package
- very carefully “break” the glue holding the top part of the wire package to the cup holder assembly. This is probably where you need to be most patient. Too much force could potentially pull the wires from the touch circuit board and render the panel useless - I did not have any issues here, but was careful with it.
- remove the glue from around the top of the wire package (the glue is hardened, so I used some pliers to break it up)
- remove the three small screws holding the cover to the touch circuit board (second to last picture), and remove the touch circuit board - the touch circuit board is where you apply the light dims (last picture)
- apply the light dims (see last picture). If you’️re not sure where the leds are, you can reconnect the chair to power - just be careful of handling the touch circuit board (the voltage is low, but don’️t want to short circuit the board).

After applying the light dims, I reattached power to confirm that the light dims were over the leds correctly. Be sure to use the smallest light dims to avoid interfering with the touch circuit.

To reassemble, reverse the above steps:
- reassemble the touch circuit board and cover. Don’️t over tighten.
- reconnect power and test that the cup holder controls work correctly. If the controls don’️t work, remove the touch circuit board cover and make sure the light dims are installed correctly.

- I zip-tied the bottom of the cable package (as it originally was), and taped the wire to the cup holder (instead of gluing)
- reattach the screws under the cup holder rim. Don’️t over tighten.

- line up the cup holder over the screw holes in the plywood chair frame and screw the cup holder down
- reinsert the cup holder liner

The steps may seem difficult, but after doing the first one, I was able to complete the other cup holders in about 15 minutes each.

I am still pleased enough with the light dims in my room, and still like the chairs too.

Hope this helps!
Wow, thanks so much!

Thanks, Alan. Any warranty concerns if doing this just to install LightDims?

I would not worry about it really. If one of the cups goes in first year we will cover it. I don't think it would effect the cupholder function as long as you don't break cupholder on installation of lightdims and it works fine after you put them in then we should be good.

Alan

You can watch some of our videos on site to see how it works.

Thanks again brente and Alan. I got LightDims installed on my Belmonts. I’m not very fast with this kind of thing and it took a little under two hours total for three seats. Was really careful and learning on the first seat and it took about an hour. Next about 25 min and the last seat about 20 min.

This light level should work much better in my room.

Cheers.

The new HT Design Clark seats list Top Grain Leather 10000. I've never seen anything above 7000. Anyone have any idea how 10000 holds up to pet/kid abuse?

Also, anyone have any suggestions on the best way to cover up seats not in use to protect from pet/kid abuse? I want to do a curved row of 4 but only two will see regular use.

Thanks in advance!

I can send you a sample but the leather is very durable and soft at same time. It's very strong. I would say a throw blanket works best with pets or kids over over the seat if your worried.

Reach out to us for a leather sample & quote we have the curved available still. We should have in stock Friday.

Alan

Nice job on that one. Love how AVS guys find solutions.

Alan

PS: On a side note if AVS'ers still need seats by superbowl, we can make it happen but it would best to order by Friday 1/17, in some cases we can even make the big game if you order next week depending on your location.

I haven’t. I’d be interested, still in the early stages of building a home theater room.

Is there any chance you are getting more styles of the lumbar support models? I like the style of other companies but of course that’s not the only factor.
