Theater Seating that doesn't look like theater seating?

I'm finishing the rec room in my basement such that it will include a media area (not a dedicated theater room) and a wet bar. Since it's a mixed use room that just happens to have a good movie system, the decor really won't allow the traditional oversized theater seats (like you might find from Octane or other larger market manufacturers).

Are there any manufacturers of such seating that stray farther from the typical from a stylistic standpoint? The bar area is going to be Tiki Bar themed, so something with a tiki or mid-century vibe would be ideal. Would like recline, but don't need or want power adjustment. Quality and appearance are more important than cost. 4 seats max in a single row.

just take the picture into a local furniture store that does special orders, they may have other vendors and models. Bamboo furniture is not rare in some parts of the country.


Some other ideas: https://www.wayfair.com/furniture/pd...-pnja1019.html

BarcaLounger makes a great mid century looking seat called the Giovanni I believe. Check it out. Manual recline and super clean lines.

Looks familiar. Was that sold at Costco?
