The pillow seemed to help quite a bit. Thanks for the suggestion.

I don't have any plans to purchase a projector and screen, but will probably upgrade the size of my tv from a 55" to a 70" sometime in 2017. Might also get a new entertainment cabinet that's higher off the ground.

All in all, very happy with the recliners. Glad I stumbled on to this thread.

I believe they are covered by the standard Costco warranty... any problems you bring it back for a refund or exchange.

Yeah...I stopped at the Customer Service Desk and asked...the lady said, "If in 5 years, they break or you don't like them. Just bring them back and we will refund you"...

Dang! I just saw these at Costco a couple hours ago and ran home to research. Seems like a nice chair and even better for the money. $499, I am sick thinking that some of you only pair $299. Thinking I will buy 4 of them and just hope they go on sale within 30 days so I can get a refund of the difference. I have even thought about buying 5 for a 3 row and 2 row. I would have to modify like the other member did, taking off the left arms to make them fit in my theater.


I'll post pics if I get em.
Happy New Year!!!

+1 for the pillow suggestion.

Been using these seats for the past year and they have held up very nicely. Whenever we have a gathering, people fight to claim the seats!

Honestly, using them constantly for the past year, they are solidly build and I doubt there would be a need to use the warranty. If you do need to, can't go wrong with Costco return policy -- possibly the best that's out there.

Last year, I missed out on the rebate of $100. Waited for the price to go down but that never happened at my local store. They were out of inventory soon after.

It was a sheer luck and thanks to this thread that I was able to snatch three for a much lower sale price from another store three hours away.

These chairs are popular at least in my area (and as evident with this thread), waiting out might not work out best.

I guess one of the main apprehensions I have is that we would like to get 5 seats and I could only fit 4 of them with the arms. I saw in this thread where somebody cut the arms off to give it a more traditional theater seat, but my wife certainly wasn't keen on tha idea. We went to HT Market(in Chicago) and loved the HT Design Hamilton but they are $829/chair...which is obviously double the sale price here. I suppose it's just something I need to decide and decide quickly.

I was the one who took the arms off. If you have a reciprocating saw (sawzall), then taking the arm off is a piece of cake. Once it is off, no one using it would ever know that it didn't come that way. If you are the least bit handy, then go for it. You can always post pictures as you go and get some guidance if you need it.

Does the plastic disk covers come off where you plug in the tray tables?Looks like its stainless underneath but it's on tight and didn't want to pry it off. Thanks

I messed with them a little when I got the chairs and came to the conclusion they probably don't come off - but I don't know for sure.

They do come off with a little effort. I left them on for a long time, but finally nervous energy got the better of me. I have to think that they are meant to come off, but they do seem remarkably durable for a mere temporary protective cover, so who knows.

They looked to be just a protective cover to me. I removed all of them as soon as I got the chairs setup. They look much better with them removed IMHO.

Did you post photos somewhere in this thread? Btw, you only took off one arm per chair, yes?
We really want a love seat in the middle. That would require removal of one left arm, and one right arm... Think that is reasonably doable while keeping the controls usable?

I didn't even notice those covers until you guys had to discuss Well got right to it, removed them relatively easy. Used a flat head screw driver, fiddled around to slide the flat head underneath and lifted the cover up.

Here is a direct link to the post where I explained the process with pictures. https://www.avsforum.com/forum/32-the...l#post41781849

Removing the right arm will be more difficult. The electronics are in the right arm. Not sure what problems you might run into there.

Thanks for your input guys,think I'm going to take them off.The stainless will look lots better than the plastic and not sure of its purpose anyway

Costco - Pulaski Churchill Home Theatre Power Recliner, $499.99 -- good?



Kind of sad that I've had these chairs for so long but it never occurred to me that those could come off! Looking at it now it seems pretty obvious... LOL!

Don't mind the dirty cup holder... apparently someone spilled last night and I didn't notice.

got em'

Picked up 4 of these on New Years Eve. Great chair from what I could tell sitting in it at Costco. I have to wait for my theater carpet to be installed then I can enjoy them.

Do they have to be assembled ? I haven't opened the box.

I saw these at my local Costco. They have fifteen of them. I wasn't able to recline in the chair as it wasn't plugged in. My TV and Projection Screen are fairly high up, so reclining shouldn't be a problem. They seem very comfortable and I noticed that lumbar support was exceptional. Does it stay that way after time?

Anyone have cats in the house? How do you protect the leather? Also - - since these would be going in the basement - - temperature wise, are they pretty comfortable in this type of environment? (I keep the basement at 70 degrees and use a small, contained oil filled heater to keep it nice and toasty during the cold winter. It's far aware from the furniture, so that isn't a problem.)

I'm hoping they drop in price from their $499 per chair current cost. I'll keep checking with my local Costco. Thanks to the OP for this great find!

I have leather chairs (Not these) in my basement theater. I can tell you when I'm wearing shorts and a T-shirt there are days when I want to throw a blanket on the chair because the leather feels too cold. But IMHO they are more durable than fabric chairs. I can't speak for the tenacity of your cats.

They are fine in the basement, we keep it around ~65-68. Leather warms up really quickly.

We had two cats, when we first got these. The only issue we have had from the cats was my 12+ year old cat lap with bad hips, trying to get up on it to cuddle. If he doesn't make it all the way he, it is like he is hanging off a cliff. The chairs don't look damaged, even when he digs his claws into the chair for dear life. We try to mitigate this by picking him up, if he wants to get up. The cats seems to have less interest in leather than other material, they use to scratch up some microfiber couches we had, though that to ceased, after we got some cardboard scratching pads to their liking. I never saw cats sleeping on our leather, though if we had a cloth chair, they would take a nap on it. From both experience and what I have read, Leather is the most resilient to pets, followed by microfiber. These are match/touch leather. If is only leather where your body touches, everywhere else it is vinyl.

As for the plastic caps, they come off, they are just protectors for shipping.
