Home theater seats for tall people (6'6)

As it says, I'm 6'6, 36" inseam, and need 4-5 seats... used to have some in an older HT from Roman a few years ago, but can't remember what they were ... looked liked the Row One Intrepid but with motorized headrests.

Found the Seatcraft Pantheon, which has a 45" seat height and a 72" recline length, but I hate that yellow stitching on them...

Any good seats for tall people like moi?

I ordered Fusion Collection Tributes from Roman and I'm 6'8". Works pretty good for me.

We got several.

I would check out the following

HT Design Belmont spacesaver with power headrest 43.5 back height when headrest down and 46.5" when headrest up.

HT Design Hamilton 44.5" back height similar looks of that intrepid seat, it's a large seat

HT design sheffield new style with power headrest 43.75 back height

HT Design Devonshire has the wood fronts 45 inch back height

HT Design Pembroke motorized headrest 44 when down 45.25 when up

That's quite a few options.

I am in the same boat.

I am 6'-3" and my office chair has a back height from the seat at 33" and total height from the floor of 53.5". A total height from the floor of 45" for a theater seat seems short for myself.

Just FYI: Our Fusion Collection Tribute-1015 has 44.75" high back, our Escape-1019 has. 45" high back with fully extended headrest, and our newest Landmark-1021 has 46.5" high back. Unless you do custom seating, which may cost ups arm and leg, I am afraid you will not find anything taller than that.

you sit a lot higher in an office chair than a theater recliner, try some on. My eyes are at 47 inches off the floor in my desk chair, 36 inches in my theater recliner.

rsh, I sent your company an email.


Thanks for the help bigmouth, I unfortunately live in West Virginia where there is no place that I know of to visit locally to try out a theater chair.

We have a new seat 45" back height named Clark has everything including power lumbar, recline and headrest. We have Hamilton and Pembroke similar heights. It's on our web site with video etc.
