I have a small home theater area in my basement. I'm looking for furniture to fit the relatively small space. I'm thinking of contemporary/clean lines and am trying to track down "urban sized" or small scale furniture. So, theater seating, recliners, and other common theater stuff unfortunately won't do. Ideally I'd find a small scale sectional with vertical sides and a chair to complement it. Obviously this doesn't have to be theater furniture, but if there is a brand/line that has some unique features that are of use in a theater/TV viewing area, I'd be interested. Thanks for pointers!

Describe small. What are your room dimensions?

How many seats are you hoping to fit in there?


Take a look at this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=768144


Depending on your room layout, you should have any trouble fitting in a row of 3 of most coaster seating. Their low end matinee series might be OK, but there are tons of other options - depending on what else is in the room and how many seats you want.

That's an interesting piece - I'll have to go check it out at Costco. I probably would like to fit 4 seats minimum in my space. Really a small sectional and a clean chair should work. I wish there was an official category of furniture. The only thing I've found is small scale or urban to describe space conscious furniture.

Have you considered actual movie theater seating? I used it in my theater because I wanted to get the maximum amount of seating I could, I have two rows, total of Nine seats, they are high quality rocker models with swing up arm rests between them. I got mine from seatsandchairs.com and I highly recommend them.

Which model of theater chair did you purchase from seatsandchairs.com?

If you are mounting into a concrete slab, I highly recommend using a Roto-Drill/Roto-Hammer to drill into your slab. You can rent one at H.D. for about $40 per day if you don't know someone that has one. Then you can use Tapcon screws (make sure you use a matching bit/screw combination) or place lead anchors in the holes and screw lag bolts into those. When I did my basement I tried one of the .22 shot guns and nails and they just bounced off of the concrete like ping pong balls. The Roto-Hammer went through the concrete like butter. You can also get mounting rails (see photo attached) that attach to the bottoms of the seats and keep them stable and also eliminates the need to anchor the seats at all. Hope this helps.
